BMAT STEM Academy / Thu 24th Aug 2023 at 10:26am
THE majority of students who have studied at a business focused school are continuing their studies in the sixth form.
Almost 70 per cent of Year 11 students who completed their GCSE courses at BMAT STEM Academy, in Harlow, this summer are moving on to A-levels and BTECs at the unique school.
BMAT STEM Academy provides a bespoke education for students in Year 10 onwards.
It means students switch from their traditional schools to BMAT STEM – which offers a unique business-focused environment and curriculum with close links with STEM employers.
Among the year group, more than 80 per cent of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in maths, with more than 60 per cent of students scoring a Grade 5 or above in science.
A group of 69 per cent of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and maths.
Head of centre Dave Ramsey said: “We are delighted our students have achieved excellent results in their GCSEs which have put them in a very strong position to access A-levels, Level 3 BTECs and apprenticeships.
“We have continued our upward trajectory of improving results, particularly in our core subjects.
“Our unique, STEM-based offer has paid dividends to students who have made particularly strong progress in maths and science, alongside very good performances in our options subjects, including 3D design, business studies, computer science and statistics.
“We are delighted that almost 70 per cent of our students have applied to stay with us for our expanding sixth form and very proud that all of our students have rewarding and appropriate courses to move onto.
“I would like to thank our dedicated staff team who have worked tirelessly to support our learners to achieve these wonderful results. Students and parents who took a chance to move to BMAT STEM Academy in Year 10 have been rewarded thanks to our science and technology focus.”
