Students and staff celebrate A Level and BTEC results

Staff and students at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology are once again celebrating a good set of results today.

As a specialist STEM college, all sixth form students only study academically demanding Science and Maths courses. We are therefore delighted that 44% of the science grades were at A*- B and 68% of the grades at A*- C. A new government measure has been introduced this year and a fantastic 86% of all students gained a Level 3 Maths qualification.

BTEC Applied Science result grades were also impressive as 100% of students studying the course achieved at least a Diploma (equivalent to 2 A levels) with all but one student completing the Extended Diploma (equivalent to 3 A levels). All students that completed the Extended Diploma course gained at least one Distinction grade (equivalent to an A at A level).

Students have been highly successful in progressing onto their chosen university places, apprenticeships and careers. Destinations are yet to be finalised, however currently over 70% of students have chosen to take up offers at their choice of university to study STEM courses, ranging from nuclear science to aerospace engineering and environmental science. The opportunity to take part in ‘real world’ projects delivered in partnership with top science and technology companies has supported success with degree and other applications.

GCSE student secures one of the most prestigious Engineering Scholarships in the UK

A huge congratulations to Ethan, from Year 11, who has managed to secure one of the most prestigious scholarships of its type in the UK.

The aim of the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship is to inspire and nurture school-age students to be the country’s future leaders of the Engineering Profession.

Each student that is chosen has to partake in a rigorous selection process and is then supported through the two years of their A levels or equivalent qualifications.

Ethan will benefit from extra funding, mentoring and access to events, lectures and competitions – so well done Ethan!

CAS Week at CAST

Year 8 students from across CAP have spent the first half of the week at CAST taking part in lots of fun activities relating to Science.

Around 300 students from Trumpington, Parkside and Coleridge were working to the brief of ‘COLONISING MARS’ – so were dissecting rats (as part of the medical requirement), building rockets and designing space suits. We hope they had lots of fun – and that we passed on our love of Science.

Whilst the Year 8s were busy in school, our Year 9s were going back to nature, with Born to Survive, the CAS week activity for this year group across the Cambridge Academic Partnership.

In small groups, students and their teachers had to navigate their way from Coleridge Community College to Abington Woods, which took anywhere from 4 hours to 6 hours, depending on the route taken. Once at the campsite, the students had to pitch their tents and cook dinner. Some games were played in the evening before settling down to sleep. Students then walked back to Coleridge the following morning. One of the days involved an in-school activity day which consisted of rounders, ‘who should we eat?’, disaster planning and making a sustainable island society.

Well done to all of the students who took part! You should be very proud of yourselves! And thanks to the staff at CAP who organised the event and helped out.
