Oldham Sixth Form College


The OSFC experience

The OSFC experience

In 1992, Oldham Sixth Form College opened its doors to the very first set of OSFC students. The college quickly became an established beacon of the Oldham community and, over the years, has continued to invest in its facilities and educational offering, now sitting across four buildings at the heart of Oldham town centre.

OSFC is a proud member of The Pinnacle Learning Trust. We are a local Trust, which uses an understanding of our community and a rigorous culture of high aspirations and strong academic performance to be a positive catalyst for change and to improve the life chances of our young people. The Trust's ethos is built upon a desire to create extraordinary opportunities for staff and students. OSFC aims to significantly improve their chances to progress, achieve and go on to succeed in the lives and careers they want and deserve.

Much like our physical presence, the education we offer students has evolved over time as we continuously improve students’ learning and experiences to match the demands of the modern world. Now, in 2021, we want to reflect the amazing work our College continues to do and drive it into a bold and exciting future with a fresh new look.

In line with this evolution, we felt that now was the right time to rebrand the College to reflect the innovative, forward thinking organisation we are, help us stand out from the competition and engage prospective students. Our new image encapsulates the pride we hold in our successful college.

OSFC has changed a lot since 1992, but our purpose hasn’t. Suzannah Reeves, Associate Principal said, ‘We believe it’s important to provide our students with exceptional education in a safe and supportive environment. We make it our mission every day to work on behalf of our students, so that they can go on to have successful and meaningful lives. It’s this fundamental mission that has shaped and propelled everything we’ve achieved over the past 28 years.’

2020 was a year of reflection for many. When the coronavirus hit the world, people, businesses and communities were forced to slow, stop and reflect. This time allowed many to look inwards and establish priorities and shift everyday practices to better centre around what is really important to them. This period of reflection affected OSFC too. It brought to focus the importance of connection and belonging that the College supports for its community. We set out to re-brand OSFC to reflect the modern and ambitious college experience that so many students, parents and staff are an integral part of and have pride in. We also want the OSFC brand to mirror the exciting period of change and innovation taking place in Oldham and the North West.
