  4. 4. Why have you been chosen? You are a high ability learner. We want to provide you with more opportunities to excel and stand out as an individual in an increasingly competitive world.
  5. 5. Why should I be involved in this project? This project encourages students to engage the higher level thinking skills that are required for GCSE and A Levels: • Critical thinking • Independent thinking • Primary source research
  6. 6. Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) This project prepares students for the requirements of KS4 and KS5. It gives them an insight into the type of independent study that will be expected of them in the future... This is particularly useful for those high achieving students at A Level that would like to get an extra qualification- the EPQ. The EPQ is an independent study in addition to A-Levels. Students are able to research and write about something that interests them outside of their core subjects. They will undergo independent research to produce a 5000 word essay. All of our EPQ submissions this year have been provisionally awarded an ‘A’ grade.
  7. 7. Challenge and Enrichment… what’s next? This term: • Art- High performing students in this area will have the opportunity to produce an art installation for the Powerhouse train crew depot. There will be workshops to prepare for this. • English (two days)- Students that are selected for this trip will take part in/observe a workshop, tour and performance of ‘Twelfth Night’ at The Globe Theatre. On the second day we will hold critical and reflective workshops based around the performance. • STEM- A number of professionals will be running workshops over the next half term that will give students an insight into the jobs available in these areas as well as the interesting research and experiments that take place.
  8. 8. Challenge and Enrichment… what’s new next year? KS3 debate club- Due to popular demand, a KS3 debate club will be introduced from October next year. This will enhance students’ critical skills and will be great preparation for the ‘speaking and listening’ assessment at GCSE level English. School Magazine: The first issue will launch in October. In the mean time, we will be looking for keen writers in all subject areas to contribute to this cross- curricular project.
  9. 9. KS3 Launch Evening What can you do to support your child? What do we hope your child will gain from taking part? Imagine, Create, Succeed!
  10. 10. Which awards are there? We expect that your projects will be creative and varied, so there are 4 different awards that will be given out.
  11. 11. Informative award Criteria for winning: • Judges will choose the project that impresses them with the most detailed research. • Winners of the ‘Informative’ award will amaze judges by providing the crowds with insightful information, presented in an engaging way. Last year’s winner: Charlotte Copeman created a fantastic hand stitched canvas illustrating the importance of education, especially for females, with supporting information focussing on ‘The Golden Needle Sewing Club’. To accompany her project, Charlotte also created a poem, inspired by her topic.
  12. 12. Innovative award Criteria for winning: • Judges will be looking for the project that is presented in the most exciting and original format. • Previous winners have chosen topics that allow them demonstrate how inventive they can be. Last year’s winner: William Fairhead created a tremendously colourful 3D piece portraying his love of Tour De France. The detail was exemplary, with use of facts about the sport and a visual representation of the cycling routes conveyed via a pinboard style.
  13. 13. Imaginative award Criteria for winning: • Winners of this award will demonstrate hard work, passion and a unique outlook on their chosen topic. • The most imaginative project will be one that stands out from the crowd. Last year’s winner: Saskia Cushings created a comprehensive and interactive piece of art that focussed on a great historical account of World War II and the need to break German codes.
  14. 14. People’s choice award Criteria for winning: • This is your chance to win the crowd over with a combination of your imagination, innovation and Information. • Voting Slips will be handed out and tallied near the end to decide the person who’s project has moved the crowd the most. Last year’s winner: Eloise Hadley carefully constructed a zen garden entitled ‘Chelsea Garden Show’. It was a beautifully elegant and sophisticated use of nature, and culture. The crowd were won over by her explanation of her love of nature and the inspiration that has been passed on through the generations of her family.
