Frome College Sixth Form Open Evening begins at 5.30pm on Wednesday 1 November, with a presentation by the Principal and Senior Leadership Team in our campus Merlin Theatre

The presentation will be repeated at 6.15pm, and guides will provide tours of the College where there will be displays of work, subject information leaflets, and refreshments.  Our committed team of staff will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the largest range of courses on offer in the area.

In the last 2 years, 7 students have secured places at Oxford & Cambridge which highlights the high quality of support and guidance given to students, ensuring they can access a wide range of opportunities once they finish their studies.  Frome College prides itself on the careers guidance and participation opportunities on offer to students alongside academic subjects, providing a broad and balanced curriculum to equip students with essential life skills for their next steps.  We are supporting more students to successfully apply for apprenticeships and going on to complete Degree level apprenticeships free from the costs of student loans. Apprenticeships are set to grow significantly in numbers over the coming years, and we will be ensuring that our students are firmly placed at the front of the queue.

We are a comprehensive Sixth Form which can cater for students of all abilities. Having the widest range of A Level and vocational courses in the area allows our students far more flexibility in course combinations and option choices. The size of Frome College allows us to run A Level courses which many Sixth Forms are struggling to provide nationally such as French, Spanish, Performing Arts, Computer Science, Law, Psychology, Sociology and Music; all of which are taught by specialist teachers. We also provide Level 2 qualifications through our World of Work course, where students retake Maths/English GCSE and complete a work experience placement with one of a wide range of local employers; we have found this to be excellent preparation for students to springboard into apprenticeships.

We have an extensive Sixth Form team who provide comprehensive pastoral support for students as they make the transition between GCSE to A Level. We monitor student progress frequently and ensure that all students receive the guidance required to achieve excellent results, and we work hard to ensure students are fully prepared for their exams. In addition to this, there is a wide range of extracurricular activities for students to engage in, allowing students to develop and grow outside of the classroom into young adults who will stand out against their peers for their unique achievements.

This is a fantastic opportunity to visit our highly successful and vibrant College.  If you are unable to attend the evening, visits to the College are welcomed at other times by appointment convenient to you and your family.
