Applying for a Place

If you are interested in joining Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology in Year 9* or 10 to study GCSEs or in Year 12 to join the Sixth Form you should apply to the college directly.

Students from anywhere in the region can apply. Places are not limited to those living in Cambridgeshire, the main catchment area is considered to be the area within a 25 mile straight line radius of Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology.

Year 9 and 10 Applications

Students wishing to join the college in year 9 or 10, should complete an Application Form forwarding it directly to our admissions team by post:

Admissions Team
Parkside Federation Academies
Coleridge Community College
Radegund Road
Cambridge CB1 3RJ

Or email: admissions@parksidefederation.org.uk
Telephone enquiries: 01223 712300 ext 545

*From 2018 we will be recruiting 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 2018 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.
