Established in 1988, Oxford Sixth Form College is one of the UK’s leading independent sixth form colleges for students aged 15-19. Formerly named Oxford Tutorial College, the school sustains the tutorial tradition through an average class size of three students and through having no more than six students in an A-Level class. The College offers greater flexibility than mainstream schools with over 30 subjects on offer across A-Level, GCSE and BTEC. For students looking to improve on their results the college also offers specialised, examination board specific, A-Level retake programmes that provide the right environment for you to have the opportunity to improve your results and secure a place at a top university.

Students are given expert and considered advice in order that they choose subjects appropriate to their aptitudes, interests, and intended degree course or career aims.

The College is committed to not only providing you with expert tuition, but also providing you with the support you need to reach your potential from the moment you make your application. 

An enriching academic environment in central Oxford, for students of all abilities 

JANUARY START PROGRAMMES

The College has plenty of courses starting in January, including 5-term A-Level and BTEC Business programmes, 2-term A-Level retakes, as well as gap and transfer programmes perfect for international students. 

  • 5-term A-Level programmes 

Take a full two-year A-Level course in just 5 terms, starting in January 2019 and finishing in June 2020 with the rest of your peers. 

  • 2-term A-Level Retake

The 2-term retake is perfect for those determined students for whom things might not have gone to plan but who but still have their dream university in sight. A combination of the small classes and the expertise and attentiveness of our tutors is all they need to regain their focus and get back on track. 

  • 5-term BTEC Business Level 3 Extended Diploma

A course that is worth the same as A-Levels, is completed in less than two years and has no exams at the end? Yes, it exists: it’s our 5-term, 18 unit BTEC Business course, starting in January 2019. 

  • 2-term BTEC Business Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma

This 2-term, 6-unit programme is equivalent to one A-Level and is perfect for students who need a top-up on their A-Level results to secure a place at the university of their choice. Again, no exams!

This course is designed to improve students’ English language level and give them the academic language skills they will need to progress on to A-Levels or BTEC Business.

This is a tailored course for international students aged 17+ who would like to spend an enriching term in Oxford in preparation for their university careers. Stay for one or two terms, and choose from an array of engaging, specialist subjects.

A CITY OF DREAMING SPIRES

Oxford Sixth Form College is located in the heart of the city, just a few steps from just a few steps from the Bodleian Library and historic colleges such as Brasenose, Oriel, Corpus Christi and All Souls, the ancient university, and historical museums such as the Ashmolean. 

Oxford’s reputation as a world centre for education and culture has grown over many centuries, and each of its colleges has its own kind of architectural beauty, art treasures, peaceful ambience and delightful gardens. It’s a place to feel inspired to learn.

A College in the heart of Oxford

Our College is housed in a row of handsome Victorian houses just a few yards from Oxford High Street. The centre of Oxford is small enough to explore on foot and is also within easy walking distance of the bus and rail stations. Students can enjoy Oxford’s bookshops, galleries and museums – many of which are world-class; relax and go punting on the river that flows through the city; or choose from the many other cultural offers of the city. 

College facilities

The main College premises are in King Edward Street, with three further sites within walking distance, all in the heart of the University precinct. We maintain a supervised library well stocked with essential textbooks and reference materials, and students also have access to a substantial collection of previous examination papers, specifications and examiners’ reports.

Oxford Sixth Form College facilities also include a well-equipped art room and two science laboratories in addition to a biology lab. Between lessons, students can relax in the student common room. There is also an IT suite, where students have Internet access through a fast broadband connection. A wireless network operates throughout the premises.

As the College is in a city centre location, there are a large number of cafés, sandwich bars and restaurants nearby. We also provide opportunities for joining student clubs and societies, and the academic life of the College is enhanced by a varied range of extra-curricular activities, including cultural visits, music and sports. 

Accommodation

The main aim of the College is to nurture a sense of well-being and security by providing accommodation which gives students the space to be themselves and to grow in maturity and confidence. 

Knowledge sharing in a stimulating environment

Student accommodation is arranged with local families or in college residences. Some students are ready for fully independent living, some are looking for something close to a university student experience, others prefer a family environment. It is important that all students feel comfortable, happy and ‘at home’ in their accommodation and every effort is made to match the right student to the right environment. 

  • Managed Residence

St Ebbes (for ages 15-18) 

This residence is made up of purpose-built Oxford Sixth Form College accommodation, with 50 en-suite bedrooms. Each bedroom is fully furnished with a single bed, desk and chair, wardrobe and bedside table. In line with National Minimum Standards, genders are separated using a ‘Salto’ access system which restricts access in the building but enables all students to access common areas. 

Pensons Gardens (for ages 18+)

This residence is made up of purpose-built Oxford Sixth Form College accommodation, with 20 en-suite bedrooms. Each bedroom is fully furnished with a single bed, desk and chair, wardrobe and bedside table. Access to floors and rooms are strictly controlled system which restricts and controls access but enables all students to access common areas. 

  • Host Families (for ages 15+) 

A further option is for students to stay with one of our approved host families. Students have a single study bedroom, with their breakfast and evening meal provided. Some homes also offer kitchen access for students who wish to make their own snacks. Host family accommodation in Oxford is limited, so you will need to discuss your requirements as soon as possible with the Accommodation and Welfare Officer. 

  • Private Rental (for ages 18+) 

Live independently in private accommodation. 

Students who are 18 years or older may wish to rent a private property. Students who are aged under 17 need to be in our accommodation, or, with parental permission, living with a suitable guardian. 




Extra-curricular activities

To achieve a healthy balance with work, most students need time set aside each week for other pursuits such as sports, hobbies, social events or visits. Social activities help each student find their place in the College and achieve a sense of well-being. 

Oxford Sixth Form College offers a lively programme of visits and extra-curricular activities that complement the academic curriculum. While staying with us, students will have a great cultural experience and come away with memories of Oxford that will last a lifetime. 

Social life and culture

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. At the beginning of Michaelmas Term (autumn) there is an informal welcome party, and at the end of term a Christmas party. A boating trip is also held in early summer – a gentle finale to the academic year.

Students are also encouraged to take part in the rich cultural life of Oxford. Theatres and cinemas are both plentiful in the city, and Oxford has many fine galleries and museums, including the Ashmolean, the Pitt Rivers, the University Museums and the Museum of Modern Art. We are also happy to assist those who wish to join the various clubs and societies open to them in the city. 

Sports

Team sports and events are organised in conjunction with other Sixth Form colleges in Oxford. Basketball and soccer are amongst the most popular. A sports hall is booked each week for basketball and badminton, a floodlit pitch is available for five-a-side soccer, and tennis courts are booked for students during the summer months. Squash courts are also available locally, as is a fitness gym and two excellent swimming pools.

Students wishing to play rugby, hockey, lacrosse or any other team sport on a serious basis can often be introduced to city or University clubs. 

Student societies

These are led and often run by the students. There are clubs and societies such as book club, law society, charity club, table tennis, football and basketball that run at lunchtimes or in the evenings. The clubs change each year and are determined by student preference. Additionally, all students are informed about the Student Council, which meets weekly. The Council attends meetings with College officers every half-term and is instrumental in College developments and changes.

Students who want to undertake other extra-curricular activities are supported by the Activities Manager, who works with the Personal Tutor Coordinator and the Student Services Director to put on lunchtime speakers and other activities that might be of interest to students. Students who are seemingly withdrawn or shy are also encouraged to participate as part of a group, which helps them to grow in self-confidence.
