Oldham Sixth Form College



Oldham Sixth Form College is a large and diverse sixth form college specialising in Advanced Level courses.  We have an excellent reputation for academic and vocational achievement, comprehensive pastoral care and extensive enrichment.   We offer the widest choice of A Levels in the area.  Our mission is focused on providing an inclusive, broad, high quality education for students in the local area and this is achieved through a core focus on teaching and learning.  OSFC was a founding partner in the thriving The Pinnacle Learning Trust.

OSFC was graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2022, receiving a glowing report and is currently self-assessing as ‘Outstanding’. Ofsted inspectors have described Oldham Sixth Form College as “outstanding” for its leadership and management, the behaviour and attitudes of its students and its focus on students’ personal development.

Inspectors said OSFC is a “calm, focused environment” in which students have a “positive, mature attitude to learning”. “Students feel comfortable and enjoy sharing their knowledge and working with their peers,” they added.

The outstanding achievement and progression rates of all our students led to the College receiving the Social Mobility Award at the 2017 Educate North Awards.  Our outcomes continue to be very strong and we are proud of the year on year successes and achievements of our students and staff. 

We provides staff with a range of professional development opportunities beyond their main role in college, including designation as Specialist Leaders of Education, delivery of school to school support, CPD and support for trainee teachers.

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.

We have also been designated as a Research School, commencing 2023, reflecting and reinforcing our close working relationship with Oldham Research Schools and commitment to evidence-informed practice.
