DEPUTY HEAD ATTENDS EPQ CONFERENCE
On Friday 25 May 2018, Mr Gregson represented Colyton Grammar School at the first national conference on the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) at the University of Southampton.
Taking part in the third panel of the day, which focused on marking and moderating, Mr Gregson addressed approximately 100 delegates from schools across the country on the common issues facing EPQ centre coordinators and supervisors.
The session ended with questions from the floor. Mr Gregson commented that, "With now over 40,000 entries nationally, the EPQ has become a significant post-16 qualification and the involvement of universities such as Southampton, Bath and Leeds in its further development is to be applauded. Research provided by Southampton, for example, regarding how EPQ students out-perform their peers across degree programmes, was particularly interesting."
