Oxford Sixth Form College is located in the very heart of Oxford City Centre. Established for nearly 30 years, the college is one of the UK’s leading institution for A-level courses. In 2020, 70 per cent of students gained entry to their first-choice university and 50 per cent of students gained entry to Russel Group – top 24 world-class, research-intensive universities.
Why you should study A-levels at Oxford Sixth Form College?
An individual approach to learning that promotes self-motivation and organisation.
Understanding that everyone has different aspirations and abilities, Oxford Sixth Form College focuses on individual student needs and learning styles. The teaching methods place an emphasis on small-group instruction (maximum of six students in each A-Level class) so that each student receives plenty of individual attention to aid their understanding and help them to perform better.
Oxford Sixth Form College offers different subjects for study at A-Level and students are able to choose from a wide selection of subjects, although they will be advised which mix would best facilitate entry to their proposed university courses. Students applying for the Olympiad will be enrolled on to economics, business and maths (they may also need to do EAL depending on the results from their English test). The five-term A-Level course starts in January, so the first ‘AS’ year is studied in an accelerated six-month course from January to June, and the second ‘A2’ year follows in September as normal.
The college also gives comprehensive guidance to students when applying to degree courses, which includes writing a personal statement and interview practice.
Highly qualified teachers
Over 50 per cent of teachers have a Master’s or PhD degree with years of teaching experience, including many Oxford and Cambridge graduates. All teachers are highly skilled in the tutorial methods that stretch and challenge all of the students to perform at their best.
Diverse extra-curricular activities
Throughout the year, Oxford Sixth Form College runs a number of extra-curricular activities, including debating, music, film, law, table tennis and football – along with social events such as international evenings, fundraising events and film screenings. Students are also encouraged to take part in the rich cultural life of Oxford, such as visiting many of the fine galleries and museums in the city, including the Ashmolean, the Pitt Rivers, the University Museums and the Museum of Modern Art.
