At Oasis Sixth Form we ensure students are supported throughout their time at the sixth form, we work with a wide range of partners to ensure students are given opportunities at universities, have experience of the world of work and meet professionals and are supported academically.
We work closely with the Access Project to provide personalised university application support as well as information sessions and personal tutoring from experts in a range of subjects. This has shown to have had a direct impact in raising students’ attainment.
We partner with Future Frontiers who offer sixth formers information, skills, and the mind-set to realise their career aspirations and maintain the motivation to achieve their full potential. The aim is to create long term engagement at school by developing students' aspirations and build practical connections to their education. In 2019 our students were mentored by employees from top law firm Ashurst.
A significant number of our students are invited to attend university Easter and Summer Schools during the holidays which provides them with a valuable university experience. A significant amount of students participate in yearlong university wider participation schemes such as SOAS Scholars, K+, Goldsmiths, LSE Pathways to Law and Queen Mary Pathways to Coding.
Our annual Higher Education Fair hosts over thirty top universities, and is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain advice and information so that they are able to make informed choices about their future.
In addition to this the Academy works with a variety of external organisations to provide specialist career and subject guidance including Medicine, Dentistry and Mathematics Summer Schools, Law workshops, Oxbridge conferences, Apprenticeship fairs, Safe Driving guidance and International Gap Year scholarships. Many of the students on these programmes go on to receive places at Russell Group and Top 40 universities.
