Congratulations to Frome’s year 13! This year, with the highest percentage of students achieving the top grades in the facilitating subjects (those desired by Russell Group universities).

We are extremely proud to recognise the individual achievements of all of our students: here are just a handful of examples of the outstanding successes this year:

Ross Windell, A*A*A* who is ‘”really pleased with results and to be top of the year!” and going to Durham to study Natural Sciences, majoring in Physics and Maths:.

Yoel Gil Cobo, A*A*AA who has accepted a place at University of Bath to study Architecture: “Absolutely thrilled…”






Leah Mundy A*A*AA who will be studying  Modern Languages at Exeter University: after a tough year, really pleased to have been accepted to her chosen course.

Molly Parry, A*AA accepted a place at Edinburgh University to study Biomedical Sciences. 






Magnus Jorgensen, A*AA who says he wishes he had been at college to collect his results and celebrate/cry with everyone and will be going to study Biomedical Sciences at University College London.

Peter Greenstreet, A*A*A who was so overwhelmed by his results that he is considering a deferred application at Cambridge:  “results better than I could have expected!”

Toby Kay achieved AAAB and has accepted a place to study Physics and Philosophy at Bristol University.

Harrison Butler-Stroud, who achieved A* English Lit, A in Chemistry and History and is going to Cambridge.

Mary Hurrell has secured a place to study English Language at Aston University.

Katie James has accepted a place at University of Kent to study Biomedical Science.

Sammi Kelly who ‘hasn’t stopped crying’! since she got her results will be going to Goldsmiths to study Education, Culture and Society.

Some truly outstanding combined A2 & BTEC grades were achieved by a large proportion of year 13, including Harry Hitchcock BTEC D*D*D*D* who will be studying Exercise and Sport Sciences at Exeter:

Jazmine Mullane AC BTEC D*M and has accepted a place at London Met to study Criminology and Youth Studies.

In year 12, AS levels (equivalent to half an A level), with Frome’s highest ever percentage of A to B grades. Molly Birch, Freya Caldwell, Ryan Gilroy, Jake Malley, Fynn McLennan and Ailsa Williams with 4 grade A. Bertie Harrison-Bronisnski, Bo Luan, Robert Slater and Oliver Snelgrove with AAAB grades; Emma Whitley with AAB. Alongside these there were some superb achievements by students following level 2 courses who can now follow on to level 3 courses or their chosen alternatives.

These are phenomenal achievements and we are immensely proud of all our students and grateful to their teachers for supporting and challenging them. We also wish to thank students’ parents who work so closely with us to ensure the students succeed.

This year, pass rates at both AS and A2 have improved again on last year’s good results and are in excess of National averages. We have the largest proportion of students going on to Higher Education in the college’s history. This is largely due to the outstanding achievements of the students and the work of their teachers and support staff in preparing them. A crucial part in increasing uptake to Higher Education, apprenticeships and training is the guidance to both UCAS and alternative routes for our year 13 students.  We wish all Frome Future Students the very best of luck in their chosen paths and congratulate them all for their hard work, courage and high aspirations.
