A-Level results are out and we are delighted to share with you some of the top university destinations our students will be off to in September.

Increased performance

Oxford Sixth Form College's results have been increasing year on year since 2017, and this year we have seen our best-ever set of results:

  • 50% of grades were A*/A

  • 72% of grades were A*/B

  • 88% of grades were A*/C


With these achievements along with our fantastic BTEC results and International Foundation Year results, we're proud to say that this has been a successful year for our students... against all the odds!

Principal Mark Love turned to the immortal words of Rudyard Kipling to capture the moment:

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise

With these wonderful words, Kipling perhaps captures what students have faced and how they have had to respond since schools and colleges were closed in March and more recently endured since receiving their results on Thursday of last week.

Our students have been a credit to themselves and to their families and on behalf of all of the staff at the College I am delighted to celebrate their success whether this is at A-level, NCUK International Foundation Year or BTEC Business."
