STUDENTS at Springwood High School have been praised for their outstanding project work.

Forty-two students at the academy’s sixth form received outstanding results for their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Of the 42, 19 students achieved A* grades and 14 achieved As.

A spokesman at the King’s Lynn school said the results were its best ever – with 45 per cent achieving A* and 76 per cent A* to A.

Students completed projects which covered a variety of topics from eating disorders to the death penalty and nanorobots in medicine.

The spokesman said: “The EPQ is very well regarded by universities and employers as it requires students to plan, undertake and evaluate a project of their choice. This may be a mini dissertation, an artefact, a performance or a report.

“The students work independently alongside a mentor who will support and guide them in completing their project. A massive well done to all involved.”
