In 2021/22, our ground-breaking partnership with North Cambridge Academy (NCA) offered six 100% funded Sixth Form places in Year 11 and three in Year 12, to deserving and talented young people from NCA. This programme began in 2019 with three places, but in response to the global pandemic in 2020, we were keen to increase our support and the impact that we could make within our community and doubled this offer to six places each year. We are tremendously grateful to our partners at Costello Medical for their multi-year and ongoing support for this programme. Our three-way partnership is used as a best-practice case study by Cambridge 2030 to encourage further partnerships between companies and schools in the independent and state sectors to provide better educational opportunities and outcomes for able young people, regardless of their family circumstances. Our three NCA-SPF alumni in Year 12 (the second cohort to sit A-levels under the programme) achieved good A-level results in 2022. They are all proceeding on to university courses, their preferred post-sixth form option, reading subjects including Astrophysics and Biochemistry.
