Duke of York Award Presentations

We are really pleased that 28 of last years year 13 students achieved the Gold Duke of York Award for employability. The award assesses the students readiness for work and is completed in Challenge. To achieve the award the students must complete project based learning, work experience, interviews, have a clear career plan and have achieved good level 3 exam results. Some of the students were able to attend the presentation ceremony at St. Jame’s Palace to receive the award in person from Prince Andrew.

Furthermore, almost all of our year 11 students from last year achieved the Silver Award. Congratulations to all the students.

CERN Trip

A group of 17 year 13 students visited Geneva at the beginning of October. Whilst there the students visited the United Nations, learning about the work of the organisation and visiting the Palace of Nations to see the Council Chamber and other places where World changing decisions are made. The students also spent an afternoon at the European Particle Physics Laboratory, CERN where they heard about the laboratories work from a leading scientist and visited the ant-matter factory and data centre. Whist there they had a chance to go inside a particle accelerator and saw one of the original world wide web servers. Luke said “it was very, very interesting – but hurt my brain!”

GCSE Results – Success Stories

Staff and students at CAST are today celebrating really great results with impressive individual successes. Here are a few success stories:

Rachel achieved straight 8s and 9s across all of her GCSEs and is planning to pursue a career in Medicine. While at CAST she has been able to complete work experience at a GP practice. She has also completed project work on drug development with AstraZeneca.

Ethan gained grade 8 and 9s in his three sciences and plans to remain at CAST for A levels. While studying for his GCSEs, he also managed to secure an Arkwright scholarship, which is one of the most prestigious Engineering scholarships in the UK. Studying at CAST has allowed Ethan to foster his interest in Engineering by completing two projects with Mott MacDonald designing a hydropower station and the proposed Addenbrooke’s railway station.

Tim and Matthew all achieved grade 9s in all three sciences and a number of other subjects including Maths, Computer science and Geography. Whilst at CAST they have also already completed work experience with Aveva and CR-UK. Both will be continuing at CAST to study A levels and develop their technical skills through the college’s innovative challenge project programme.

CAST GCSE Results 2019

Staff and students at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology are today celebrating really great results with impressive individual successes. They are the best ever achieved at the college.

All students study separate sciences and overall, 92% achieved two or more sciences at a grade 4 or above, 81% at grade 5 or above and almost half of the students achieving grade 7 or above.

Also, particularly pleasing was that almost a quarter of students achieved at least one grade 9 with a number achieving mainly 9s across all subjects. An impressive 92 per cent of students gained a grade 4+ in English and 90% in Maths.

In addition to their academic qualifications, all students achieved the Duke of York Award for Technical Education. This recognises their employability skills, with most reaching the silver award, the highest available for their age range.

  • Percentage of students achieving five GCSEs at 4-9 = 88%
  • Percentage of students achieving a pass in Maths (4 or above) = 90%
  • Percentage of students achieving a pass in English (4 or above) = 92%
