Results & Examinations
The 2016 results demonstrated another successful year at North Cambridge Academy with a 10% rise in the number of pupils achieving English and Math’s. Once again the English results were very strong with 83% of students achieving a A*-C in either English Literature or English Language. This year we were also delighted with the sharp rise in science with a 20% rise in the number of pupils achieving core and additional science. Another significant achievement has been the number of disadvantaged pupils achieving English and Math rising 9 percentage points from last year’s measure to 49% and well above the national average of 37%. Indeed, there were few other schools in Cambridge who have achieved this percentage rise in this measure and this confirms the judgment by Ofsted that: ‘…Leaders have established a culture of high ambition. Their determination to challenge and support students effectively is resulting in a rapidly increasing proportion who achieve at least five A* to C grades including English and mathematics…’
There were also strong performances across: computer science, photography, music, geography, media, construction, Sport and Health and social care.
