Critical Thinking and the Extended Project

The Critical Thinking course encourages a creative, open-minded and flexible approach to thinking. Students explore how we think as well as what we think, through a multi-disciplinary enquiry into our own reasoning, and the reasoning of others. Students who wish to pursue an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) must complete the Critical Thinking course.

The EPQ gives students the opportunity to carry out a research project of their own choice with minimal teacher supervision. A successful project allows students to demonstrate that they are creative learners with the ability to research, think critically and evaluate evidence to an advanced level.

It is very useful to students applying for highly competitive degree courses who want their applications to stand out from the crowd.
