Another record breaking year!
Results Day for OSFC students
Students at OSFC celebrated achieving record breaking results for the sixth year in a row with a 99% A Level Pass Rate at A-E. With over 2000 entries, the A-C pass rate also rose to 73% and A-B to 45%
30 Advanced level subjects achieved a 100% pass rate and the pass rate on National (BTEC/OCR) courses couldn't have been better either - a fantastic 100%. Two students achieved five Grade As and 7 achieved 4 grade As. Taking overall points achieved by individual students, 95 achieved 360 points or more (360 is equivalent to 3 A grades) a 14% increase on last year.

Jack, a former pupil of Mossley Hollins High School, achieved 5 As and is off to Jesus College to study Natural Science (Physics).

College Principal Nick Brown OBE said, ‘After what we thought was last year’s high watermark for the College, we are delighted that the results this year have improved significantly, particularly with the high grades. On the back of the College reputation we are able to get our students into the best universities and whilst this is very good for the College, it is exceptionally good news for Greater Manchester. Our higher grade pass rates have increased by 10% since Ofsted classed us as outstanding in our last Inspection and we are demonstrably a better College than when the DfES awarded us Beacon status for excellence”.
