On Friday 13th February, OSFC opened its doors once more to welcome primary school pupils to take part in the LIFT Little Linguists Primary Languages Day. The 30 year 6 pupils from Roundthorn Primary Academy wowed French Tutor, Sarah Shaw, and the team of A Level French students with their knowledge, enthusiasm and determination.
Applying to Oxford or Cambridge can be a lengthy, complicated process and can appear quite intimidating if you have to do it on your own. Our Oxbridge Group gives any student who is aspiring to join Oxford or Cambridge all the support and guidance they need with this process, organising visiting speakers from each university, alongside specialist subject and interview preparation and Open Day visits.
Mayor of OldhamThe Mayor and Mayoress of Oldham joined Citizenship students to discuss Local Government and the roles and responsibilities of Oldham Council. The students also gave a presentation about their current work on the promotion of ‘Drop the Learning Tax Campaign’ which they hope to further promote within college. We are really greatful to the Mayor and Mayoress for giving up their time to come and speak to us.
OSFC’s 21st French Exchange to Le Mans took place in January – and was another huge success, having a really positive impact on the students and their language skills. Staying with French families during the visit, they all used their excellent French to get by, and enjoyed two days work experience in local primary schools.
