UTC CAMBRIDGE celebrates GCSE success
Staff and students at Cambridge’s academy for science and technology are celebrating a good set of results today, with 86% with a C or above in at least one Science. 76% of students passed GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 (C) or above and 63% of students secured at least 1 A or A* grade.
99% of students at the college took the three separate sciences with 72% gaining grade C or above in all three. Students were also very successful in Maths. 85% achieved grade 4 (C) or above and nearly half of all learners gained grade 6 (B+) or above. Of students taking Further Maths just under half of the grades achieved were at A or A* and 89% were at C or above. In addition to success in the specialist areas of Science and Maths, students also did well in English, with 82% achieving a grade 4 (C) or above.
These results, coming soon after Ofsted praised the college’s innovative Maths and Science teaching, are a sustained improvement on last year.
At UTC Cambridge, the staff have high expectations of students and the exceptional “real-world” projects delivered by top biomedical and technology companies enhance and enliven their studies, developing young people with the skills, attitudes and ambition required to succeed. The Year 11 cohort have clearly taken full advantage of the innovation and challenge at UTCC and their results are testament to this.
Headteacher Sian Foreman commented “Students and Staff have worked incredibly hard to achieve impressive results in a rigorous set of subjects at a time when examinations have become more challenging. These results clearly demonstrate that UTC Cambridge in its short life is developing into a centre of excellence for Science, Technology and Maths as part of Parkside Federation Academies.”
