OSSETT ACADEMY SIXTH FORM COLLEGE


Explore A WARM AND WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT At Ossett our reputation as a centre of excellence attracts young people from schools across the region and beyond. Students tell us how much they respect and value the strong relationships that they share with members of staff at the college. They also comment on the warm and welcoming environment of our modern Sixth Form Centre, which houses a communal relaxation area, purpose-built classrooms, student friendly cafĂŠ and an Independent Learning Centre, complete with state-of-the-art ICT facilities and Wi-Fi access.

A FLEXIBLE AND INCLUSIVE CURRICULUM We know that one size doesn’t fit all. Our Sixth Form aims to stimulate an interest in learning for life by offering students a flexible and inclusive curriculum that enables you to study a diverse range of academic and vocational courses, ranging from A and AS Levels to BTEC courses. Work in your chosen subjects is supported by dedicated and experienced subject staff that will work closely with you and who will communicate on a regular basis with your parents ensuring a consistent and supportive approach to Sixth Form life. Your private study time is complemented by one-to-one mentoring sessions and support from your Tutor, who will help you to develop your study skills, review your academic progress, focus on your targets and provide individual action planning.


Succeed BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

Of course, life in the Sixth Form is also great fun! Out of lessons, there’s much to do and we encourage all students to be involved in the varied enrichment activities and social events that take place throughout the academic year. Do you want your voice to be heard? At Ossett, Student Voice plays a big part in decision-making processes throughout the college. Do you have leadership skills and qualities? Do you aspire to be Head Boy or Girl or maybe a student ambassador? Do you want to make a valued contribution to charity work or help within the community? At Ossett we will give you the freedom to think and act independently, seize the initiative and explore new horizons. By playing a vital role within the Academy’s community you’ll gain the confidence and skills you need to make a positive and valuable contribution at both a local and global level. Life in Sixth Form College is all about finding out who you are as a person: what you want to do in life, where you want to go, and how you set about achieving it. It’s about taking responsibility for your own knowledge and your own learning, seizing new opportunities, and setting yourself high, but realistic targets that will help you achieve your goals in life.


Excel TODAY DECIDES TOMORROW Many of our students graduate to university, including Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities; others take a gap year before entering HE or go straight into paid employment. Whatever your dreams, through our specially tailored Progression Module you’ll receive expert careers advice and help in writing your personal statement or CV. You’ll have the chance to attend HE fairs and practise your interview skills. You’ll be kept informed about opportunities for work experience, learn about additional support and the availability of Open Days, all helping to give you a head start when getting into the university, course or job of your choice. Whatever your goal, aim high. Together we’ll make sure that you gain the qualifications and skills that you need to meet the challenge, change your life and build your future.
