The Frome College GCSE Presentation at Memorial Theatre on Tuesday 20 November saw a large crowd of parents and students, who sat their exams in the summer, celebrate their results and receive their certificates.

During the presentation, Principal, Ms Reynolds, expressed her congratulations to all the students on the record exam results this year, and to their families for the tremendous amount of support that goes on to help our young people achieve them. Alongside the presentations, students performed a variety of musical accompaniment on the stage.
 
We were delighted this year, to welcome European Triathlete, Rachel Bown as our VIP guest of honour. Rachel gave an inspirational speech to the audience about her career, and displayed the Olympic Torch she carried. She also spoke about the support she had battling an illness when she developed a tumour on the brain, which left her blind in one eye, and the book she wrote about her journey called ‘The Butterfly WITHIN’. The audience was intrigued by her story and her determination to achieve her goals. Rachel spoke candidly to the students about focussing on their ambitions, and to never give up on working hard achieving their dreams. Her mantra was “happiness is a choice” regardless of what obstacles may get in the way through life.

 Rachel said "Thank you to Frome College for inviting me to speak at the GCSE Presentation evening. This is the first awards evening of its type that I have attended, I did not know what to expect, and it was fantastic! Well organised and well-paced. The musical interludes were beautiful and showcased what else Frome College offers and achieves. It was an honour to celebrate such academic success and to hear that it was a record year! However, what really shone through was how much the senior leadership team value the staff and students. Frome College must be a positive and inspiring place to work.”


 The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all, in celebration of another successful year at Frome College. Our congratulations go to all the students, and thanks to our Sixth Form photographers Liam McPherson and Ryan Snook in Year 13.
