Student Life

There’s always something extra to get involved with at OSFC, above and beyond your studies! As well as being lots of fun and a great way to meet new people, taking part in some of the extra opportunities we offer will help you develop really important employability and essential life skills. Try something new, step out of your comfort zone and be curious! No matter what your interests, we’re sure there will be something exciting for you to get involved with!  

Activities range from trips, both in the UK and abroad, to fundraising for a range of national and local charities. We plan many events to celebrate diversity and mark awareness and we invite an exciting array of speakers into College regularly - Keir Starmer, Andy Burnham and Poets Laureate Carol Ann Duffy & Simon Armitage to name just a few examples.The College regularly hosts political debates and Hustings too.

You may wish to be part of our Interfaith panel discussions or our Debating society. Alternatively, you could be a member of the Student Union, representing student views or the Student Ambassador team, as the face of the College.

We have a long established LGBT + group called Love is Love and an Eco Committee set up to focus on how OSFC students can ensure the College works within Green priorities.

 Diversity is celebrated and everyone is welcome” (Ofsted 2022). We endeavor to empower all those within our college community to grow and have fun, feel safe and be successful. Staff and students have the freedom to be themselves and make the most of the opportunities available. Our EDI group is committed to maintaining an inclusive culture where everyone is valued and respected.

A huge range of sporting opportunities are on offer and we are the largest provider of the Duke of  Edinburgh Gold award in the area. We even have our own climbing wall.

All of these opportunities are open to all students and greatly enhance their experience of OSFC life!
