Welcome to Frome College

Our vision is simple – great teaching combined with a strong focus on students’ aspirations, achievement and personal development.  Our vision means  great outcomes and life chances for our young people. Underpinning everything we do is a respect for all students and their parents, a full commitment to professionalism and a well ordered and caring school community.

At Frome College our curriculum is designed to ensure that all students  achieve to the very best of their ability. Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of all learners and are engaging, fast paced and fun. We encourage debate, discussion and questions for our teachers. Students are taught skills and strategies to help them become effective, independent, resilient learners which prepares them for the different stages of school life and beyond.

The design of the curriculum provides complete continuity of learning for students from Year 9-13. Learners are given appropriate and specialist advice and support in making the transition between Key Stages 3-5, preparing them fully for higher education opportunities or embracing the world of work. We offer an outstanding range of subjects at both key stage four and five, the breadth of subjects offered ensures that our young people maximise their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.

Our House system organises our young people into five learning and support communities; each led by an experienced Head of House (HoH) who ensure everyone  settles into college life well and has  the support and care they deserve. Our welfare team work closely with students and families to provide swift and effective intervention when needed.

Look out for our termly newsletter, weekly bulletins and articles in the press to see and learn about the many extra curricular and wider opportunities available.  As you will see, Frome College is a richly resourced and stimulating place in which to work, learn and achieve.  We pride ourselves on the additional opportunities we provide for students; learning inside the classroom is the key to success but we also believe that so much more can be learnt beyond the classroom. A  quote from Ofsted sums this up perfectly ‘extremely wide range of extra-curricular activities and after-school clubs, which  make highly effective use of the theatre and other facilities on the school site, as well as in the community. All activities are very well attended and highly valued by students. Many of these also show the very strong relationships the school has with many businesses and organisations within Frome – it is very much at the heart of the community’.

However, we are never complacent and, we are constantly looking for ways to improve in order to serve our families and the community with the very best education has to offer. I am confident that we will, with the support of our community, continue to thrive and prosper. We are ambitious for our students and I trust that you and your child wish to be part of the success story which is Frome College.
