A Levels at Leighton Park

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
Take a look +

We fully encourage our A Level students to commit to an EPQ alongside their core studies. You’ll be writing a 5,000-word essay, written following five months of independent research. It’s highly valued by universities because it demonstrates your ability to go beyond the syllabus with creative, joined-up thinking.

"I truly appreciate Leighton Park for the kind atmosphere, which is advocated by everyone, it really is unlike all other schools and coming here from a foreign country it was hard to adapt but there was a lot of support at LP.
