Oldham Sixth Form College
OSFC is an award-winning, nationally recognised college for 2,350 students in Oldham and beyond. Our broad curriculum enables us to offer more than 60 A Levels, vocational diplomas and T Levels. We are proud of our strong reputation for providing excellent academic and vocational education to a diverse range of students.
We have high aspirations for all our staff and students. Ofsted recently described our college as “outstanding” in leadership and management, student behaviour and attitudes, and student personal development. They also praised our college for its “calm, focused environment” and the “positive, mature attitude to learning” of our students. Inspectors said our “students feel comfortable and enjoy sharing their knowledge and working with their peers”.
Our high-quality education programme provides the very best life chances for young people in our community. Our students achieve results in the top 15% nationally for A Levels and the top 30% nationally for vocational qualifications. Most progress to higher level study at university, with a smaller number progressing to apprenticeship programmes.
Just over half of our students take A Levels; just over a quarter study vocational programmes at Level 3 and around 340 choose a blend of Level 3 vocational and A Level programmes. Under 100 students study GCSE and vocational programmes at Level 2.
We offer our students exceptional pastoral care, extensive enrichment activities and support from a team of Progress Tutors. In 2020, we were delighted to be recognised by Educate North’s Community Engagement Award for our Essential Life Skills programme.
In our latest Ofsted report, inspectors praised the “high quality education” we provide and noted how our staff teach students critical thinking skills, encouraging them to ask questions and make judgments they can support with evidence.
We have been at the forefront of using technology within teaching and learning, supporting our own staff and other schools/colleges through an effective suite of CPD opportunities and training. In 2022, the college was awarded Google Reference College status, the first sixth form college in the North of England to be recognised with the prestigious status, and one of only three sixth form colleges in the UK. ‘Google Reference status’ is awarded for the outstanding use of technology to drive positive learning outcomes and recognises the College’s use of G Suite for Education in innovative ways. In addition, all students are issued with a Chromebook at the start of the year which contributes significantly to preparing students for their next steps in education or employment.
We are very proud of the fact that OSFC is the only sixth form college nationally to be awarded Research School status (EEF’s Research Schools Network). We are also the Delivery Lead for NPQs on behalf of East Manchester Teaching School Hub, a Science Learning Partnership Hub and a winner of a Curriculum Innovation Award for our work in delivering digital education.
