A fantastic 149 OSFC students are progressing onto highly competitive degree courses at the UK’s most prestigious (‘Russell Group’) universities this September. This is testament to their hard work, the efforts of their teachers, and the tailored support they have received through such initiatives as the college’s Russell Group Tutor Groups and the Oxbridge Group. We are delighted with their success!
With nearly 2500 entries for Advanced Level courses at OSFC in 2014, students have once again achieved a pass rate above the national average, including an excellent further improvement in A* grades.
On the 24th March 2014, the XFM Breakfast Show producer, Jim Salverson tweeted that he wanted to get something into space but needed some help. @OSFC_Physics replied… Depends what it is…. the rest as they say is history. What it is… What it was, was 2 bobbleheads, a bee and some cameras to take footage from the edge of space…. We were obviously able to help out.
A team of Accounting students from OSFC were joint winners of an Accounting Masterclass Day at Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) on 3 July. PwC is one of the four top Accounting firms in the world and we were pleased to see one our successful former students, Leoni Smithies, leading one of the sessions at the Masterclass.
