    • A Warm and Welcoming Environment                              

      At Ossett we realise how important your learning environment is and how the facilities that we provide can help successfully support you in your studies.  Through Student Voice we have worked together to create a warm and welcoming Sixth Form Centre, which houses purpose-built classrooms and an Independent Learning Centre, where students also benefit from state-of-the-art ICT facilities, free Wi-Fi access.  We have also recently added a second Sixth Form study facility which provides additional space and ICT access for independent study.  The Lounge café and Post 16 Common Room provides a great place to eat, and comes complete with 2 large TV screens, network points and student lockers.  It’s the ideal place to meet with friends and take a break from your studies.

      The Independent Learning Centre and Post 16 iBase

      Housed within the Sixth Form Centre you will find the Independent Learning Centre, or ILC, which is heavily used throughout the day by all our Sixth Form students. Here you will find a range of paper-based and electronic resources which have been specifically selected by subject staff to help support you in your independent study. If you need help with subject specific references, producing a presentation or simply in need of a photocopy then our full-time Post-16 Learning Mentor is on hand throughout the day to ensure that you are fully supported in your access to important information. Whether you need time for quiet private study or maybe some group work, the ILC provides private study booths and communal areas to allow students to work in different ways. The ILC also provides fantastic ICT facilities, with a full ICT suite, free Wi-Fi access and netbook loan. All students have access to a dedicated careers' advisor who is available to help students make decisions about their future progression.  The facilities on offer in the ILC have recently been extended to iBase which is used exclusively by Post 16 students and offers study support for all students throughout the college day.

      In need of breakfast before your first lesson, a filling tasty lunch or maybe just a coffee at break time then you’ll find what you are looking for at The Lounge - our student centred café housed within the Sixth Form Centre. From subs to soup, pasta to pizzas we cater for all tastes, providing the foods that you like to eat at an affordable price.
