CAST Celebrates A-Level and BTEC Success

Staff and students are celebrating a great set of results today, with more students than ever gaining the top A-level grades. Twenty five percent of the grades achieved were at A* and A. Students and staff are delighted with their success.

As a specialist STEM college, all sixth form students study highly demanding Science and Maths courses. Results are strong with forty five percent of grades in these subjects at A*- B. BTEC Applied Science result grades were also encouraging with 100% of students achieving at least 3 passes.

At Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology students also have the opportunity to take part in “real-world” projects delivered by top science and technology companies. These skills are reflected in the results of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), where forty seven percent of grades are A*/ A.

Head-teacher, Sian Foreman commented “Our students have been highly successful in progressing onto their chosen university places, apprenticeships and careers. Destinations for students are very impressive, with over seventy percent going on to university this year to study STEM courses ranging from Medicine to Finance and Cybersecurity. There is no doubt that the additional project work that students undertake with local companies supports success with degree and work applications.’

CAST Trip to Colchester Zoo

Our Year 12 A Level students invoked a bit of trip envy this week – with a visit to Colchester Zoo for some important learning as well as fun activities.

As part of their Biology, Environmental Science and Psychology studies, the students had a Conservation talk designed to help put everything they’ve learnt so far into context.

Their second talk was all about animal behaviour – followed by a chance to have a go at training the zoo’s goats using a technique the zoo uses to manage the animals with the minimum of stress.

Daniel, one of the students who went, said: “It was a really enjoyable trip. I never thought training goats could be that much fun.”
