We are incredibly proud of the achievements and progress of all our students as we receive excellent GCSE and BTEC results today.

Frome College students have shown great resilience over the past three years, facing tougher exams and national changes to qualifications and assessments. Our success is grounded in the strong relationships fostered at this college, the dedication of all our staff, consistent high-quality teaching and the support of our parents. Frome College governors and I would like to thank parents, staff and students for such a successful year.

We have many success stories to share this year. Highlights include Mathematics and the Sciences where we have achieved a record number of the highest levels with our average point score rocketing compared to previous years. A superb 60% of Chemistry and Physics grades are level 7 or higher. We continue to perform exceptionally well in Sport with 44% of grades at distinction level; matched by German with 42% of grades at top levels. Students of Childcare performed extremely well with 88% gaining good grades.

Our girls have performed exceptionally well this summer with 82% achieving 5 or more strong GCSE qualifications. English and Maths are crucial for any young person’s future and we are delighted 

that 97% of the year group have gained both of these qualifications- the highest percentage in the history of the college. One of our strengths is the breadth of subjects students can study at college and a total of 12 subjects attained a 100% pass rate- real testimony to the hard work of students and staff.

Amongst our many individual successes, 16 of our highest performing students achieved a total of 145 top level 7+ [the equivalent of A*/A grade] across a wide range of subjects. This is a stunning achievement for:

Joe Coles; Niah Earl; Samuel Evans; India Haines; Isabel Hanney; Almos Juhasz; Brian Kendall; Eve Lindley; Iris Shulman; May Southgate; Irek Swierczynski; Robert Trowbridge; Stephanie Verwey; Alex Waldeck and Daisy Wellsted.

The following students have made outstanding progress in their GCSE examinations, achieving results well above their targets. In some cases, this was by two or three grades or levels. A fantastic set of achievements, demonstrating the dedication and positive attitude of Frome students. Congratulations must go to: Rio Atherton; Adam Baker; Morwenna Bryant-Young; Noah Brock; Charlie Cox; Isabella Davis; Orla Feeney; Liam Hughes; Lj Land; Maycie Mathurin; Grace Miles; Chloe Nicholls; Joe Porter; Aidan Rodgers; Phoebe Sparks; Phoebe Tanner and Sophie Tanner.

We look forward to welcoming year 12 into sixth form on Wednesday 4th September and plan to hold our GCSE celebration event on Thursday 21st November from 7pm in the Memorial Theatre.

It is wonderful to see another improvement in the results that our students have achieved, to add to year on year improvements for Frome College. This is an excellent set of results and it is especially pleasing to see the increase in our top grades with those achieving A* and A increasing from 21 to 24% and those achieving A* to B grades increasing from 44 to 46%. These results will set people on the journey to their next destination and we wish them well. My congratulations to them and our thanks to the teachers and parents who work together so well in our Community College.
