GCSE results day 2020: Students at the Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology celebrate grades
Students at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST) are ready to make the next in their education after receiving their GCSE results.
The majority are set to return to the college's sixth form, which offers A-levels and BTechs in STEM subjects alongside opportunities for young people to work with nearby business organisations involved in science and technology.
Danielle Pacey, headteacher at Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology (CAST), said: “We are very pleased for our students today, whose results reflect their dedication and hard work over the past two years.
“I know I speak for all our staff in saying they have been a pleasure to teach and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve next. It is of course particularly gratifying that so many are choosing to remain at CAST for their A-levels and continue to build on their achievements.”
Some of the Year 11 students celebrating this week include Ewa, who is taking the next step towards an ambition of being a paediatrician.
She will be starting A-levels in maths, chemistry and biology at CAST to make the most of the college's close close links to organisations on the Addenbrooke’s campus.
Harry is dreaming of a career in biomedical research, and has spent time working on a challenge project with AstraZeneca which has given him valuable skills for pursuing his pathway. He will now be studying biology, chemistry and geography at CAST.
Betty will be taking up A-levels in biology, chemistry and psychology, and is exploring career options in criminology or chemistry.
Vlada wants to pursue a career helping people by using science and technology, which was spurred by a challenge project with Cancer Research UK. She will be studying A-levels in computer science, maths, chemistry and biology in the CAST sixth form.
