Their excellent results confirm our continued aim to improve year on year. Our students have worked really hard and the excellent commitment of the Crompton House students, staff and parents has been reflected in the grades.”

Eight of our Year 13 students achieved Grade As in the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which included Freya Upton’s project based on her “Viking Challenge”. Freya designed and produced a series of Scout activities which are freely available on the internet. She also designed and sold a badge for Scout groups who complete the challenge. So far she has sold over 1,000 badges to Scout and Guide groups all over the UK to help fund her participation in the 15th World Scout Moot in Iceland in July 2017.

To achieve the Extended Project Qualification, which carries UCAS points of half an A Level, Freya had to produce a production log, written report, supplementary evidence and a presentation. Other students researched and produced extended essays on a variety of topics relevant to their studies or interests.

More details of the EPQ can be found on the internet including this UCAS website:


At AS Level special congratulations to our highest achievers: Rachel Milligan, Kate Mawdsley Joshua Povey, David Jinks, Josh Macdonald and Stephen Oldfield,.  They all achieved 4 Grade As or better.

Rachel Milligan also achieved 5 Grade As and an A* in the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification).

Mr Newell said “Our AS results are very impressive and the students and staff have worked very hard to achieve them. They confirm that our students are well on course for excellent A Level results next year.”
