At Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology we offer an exciting STEM Curriculum at both Key Stage 4 (GCSE) and Key Stage 5 (BTEC/A Level).
We offer our students a unique opportunity to achieve traditional qualifications while also getting a head start in developing the skills required for exciting and rewarding careers in the 21st century. Students can progress through these key stage 4 and 5 years, spending 4* years with us or joining at sixth form entry stage.
Our GCSE curriculum has a strong emphasis on Maths and English which compliments science and technical subjects. BTEC and A Level students are also offered a wide choice of STEM courses. Students will study either a BTEC or A Level portfolio of accredited qualifications including Core Maths, the Extended Project (EPQ) and Challenge Projects.
We also recruit students to begin courses in year 9, as well as in year 10. This is so that students who currently attend schools where GCSE courses start in year 9 will have the opportunity to transfer across at that point. Those starting with us in year 9 will begin their GCSE study by following a foundation course. This will involve all the preparation required to give students a ‘head start’ in GCSE programmes so that when they start their GCSE specification courses in year 10 they are already confident and ahead in their studies.
