Oldham Sixth Form College was established in 1992 as a purpose-built, specialist centre for advanced level study.
The College has a long tradition of excellence and a reputation for outstanding results and Ofsted reports. The College has a commitment to achieving the highest levels of academic standards along with strong and effective guidance and support systems and a varied student enrichment programme. In contrast to national trends, the College’s science courses have been heavily oversubscribed in recent years, forcing staff to turn away potential students due to lack of space. The Regional Science Centre Oldham provides an innovative solution to this problem.
Courses are delivered by highly qualified academic and support staff using state of the art facilities in order to provide a learning experience of the highest quality. In 2005, OSFC was awarded LSIS Beacon Status, an award which recognises sustained excellence and outstanding performance in academic institutions.

More than 220,000 people receive 700 essential services from Oldham Council. The Council and its partners are investing £100m in new schools and more than £10m in the Regional Science Centre Oldham, ensuring that Oldham offers opportunities to learn and study from nursery right through to undergraduate level. Oldham’s a great place to live, learn and work; while its skyline is dotted with Victorian mills, it is also characterised by the distinctive wild landscape and outdoor attractions of the Saddleworth Pennine moors.
The borough boasts the highest proportion of protected countryside in Greater Manchester, is one-quarter Peak District National Park and boasts seven Green Flag parks. Oldham’s Metrolink urban rail link opens in late 2011, connecting the town centre with Manchester city centre and, from 2013, Manchester Airport.
