Welcome to Frome College
As Principal I am very privileged to be working alongside such fantastic students who constantly impress me with their sense of pride in the College. In the past year I have seen Frome College grow from strength to strength. As a College we are actively encouraging students with a ‘can do’ culture, to believe in themselves and believe they can be successful as they make their career choices. Their positive energy and enthusiasm is a constant source of amazement and I am very proud of them all.
The ‘House’ system introduced at the start of this academic year has been a huge success with students competitively participating in very exciting ‘House’ cross-country and swimming events. There were some impressive performances in the swimming and it was heart-warming to see large numbers of students just wanting to take part and do their very best for their House.
We believe in creating exciting and rewarding futures for our young people through outstanding teaching, strong student-centered care and career guidance and by a wealth of personal development opportunities for all our students.
iPad rollout for Year 9’s has had to be delayed until after half-term. The lease documents which were due to be signed by the school were wrongly worded and would have meant that the iPads would not have belonged to you following the 36 month lease if we had signed them.
In order to ensure you own the iPad at the end of the agreement we have had to consult with Westwon, the scheme operator, Investec, the lease company, Millgate, the supplier and Somerset County Council to get the paperwork changed to be able to give you the equipment at no additional charge following the final payment on the 36th month of payment.
We are deeply sorry for any delay, however, we are committed to ensuring the iPads will belong to you at the end of the scheme and felt the delay was necessary and in your best interest. Monthly payments for the iPads will not start until your child is in receipt of their equipment.
We will update information on this site regarding iPad rollout and will be able to provide you with the exact rollout date once the paperwork has been signed and accepted by all parties involved. We envisage rollout to happen soon after we return from half-term.
Please feel free to email me directly should you require any more information at email@example.com.
