The afternoon of Friday 20 November saw a full house at the Frome Memorial Theatre celebrating Frome  College’s most successful exam results to date, at the annual GCSE Certificate Presentation, giving both staff and parents the opportunity to congratulate the Year 11 success.  

The celebration this year was particularly well deserved as the results achieved by the students were so high.  Principal, Gavin Ball said “I am very proud how well they have all done, not only are their Maths and English results above the National Average but their Progress 8 levels, which track progress, were extremely high”.  
The student’s achievements were reflected by the highest attendance to date at the event, by not only students, but parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and many others who were keen to celebrate all the successes.

Everyone was warmly welcomed by Mr Ball, Vicky West, Pastoral Director, and all the Heads of House.  
Mr Ball introduced the prestigious guests who supported the event;  BBC Sport presenter, and Paralympian swimmer Kate Grey, who gave an inspiring motivational and moving speech, David Warburton MP for Frome & Somerton and Kate Bielby, Frome Town Mayor.

During the certificate presentation, there was a surprise award presented by David Warburton to Ben Manning in Year 12.   Ben not only was awarded Frome Youth Citizen of the Year Award earlier this year by the Selwood Rotary Club, but also received the extremely prestigious Diana Award.   Ben was very surprised and pleased to receive the award and David Warburton praised Ben for his outstanding community work and encouraged others to get involved.

Any Frome College event would not be complete without highlighting the musical talents of our students who performed some outstanding pieces.   Special thanks therefore go to Brynn Dunn, Jessica Billett and Jacob Howell in Year 12, who were extremely nervous performing in front of their peers but they were consummate professionals and the nerves did not show at all.

There will be more of the student’s musical talents on show at the College Carol Concert at St John’s Church on Monday 14 December at 7.00pm.

The ceremony was rounded off with refreshments in the Assembly Rooms.
