At Enfield Grammar School, we believe that Sixth Form is not just about enabling student to achieve the best qualifications, but also preparing students for the challenges of both Higher Education, Apprenticeships/Training and a Future Career.
Students will receive weekly Progression Hours designed to support their development, support in their transition to the next stage of your education or employment and develop core skills important for Sixth Form study and beyond.
They will also be provided with enrichment opportunities, such as guest lectures, masterclasses, excursions and networking opportunities designed to broaden their experiences, engage them in areas of interest, and support students in becoming more active members of the community. In June, students will participate in a progression week, the aim of which is to prepare them for UCAS and Apprenticeship admissions. A sample timetable and resources are shown below.
Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
At EGS Sixth Form, we offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) to all Year 12 students. The Extended Project helps students develop and apply skills creatively, resulting in a dissertation on a topic of their choice. It is aimed at supporting students with the transition to Higher Education. In addition to their A Levels it is a way to earn extra UCAS points and stand out from the crowd.
It provides opportunities for the development of critical, reflective, problem-solving and independent learning skills through the planning, research and evaluation of a self-selected project.
It is graded A* to E and is a worth slightly more than an AS for UCAS points purposes.
