Oldham Sixth Form College launched the Varsity Academy one year ago, with the initiative including extra support from academics at Oxford University. Pupils from Failsworth Academy, Hathershaw College, Blessed John Henry Newman College, Leesbrook Academy, Oasis Academy, The Radclyffe School, Oldham Academy North, Royton & Crompton Academy, Waterhead Academy, and Saddleworth School all took part. Oldham Sixth Form College held two celebration evening events to celebrate the completion of the Varsity Academy programme earlier this month, with the second year of the programme launching this week. Saddleworth School English teacher Sarah Deardan said: “The Varsity Academy has provided our pupils with an invaluable opportunity to work collaboratively with all other Oldham schools. He added: “Our college mission is to transform students’ lives through academic excellence and outstanding support and the Varsity Academy epitomizes our philosophy.
