We understand that not all students are happy with their grades awarded by the exam boards.

The two options are to appeal the result, using a validated mock and / or to sit an exam series in the Autumn term.

If you are considering taking the exam this autumn (5th October - 23rd October) you must inform us by no later than 31st August. You can  withdraw after this date, more details will be provided about this. There is no late entry system for these exams. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. stating which subject and level of entry.

If you wish to appeal your result, then once again you need to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  stating which result you wish to be considered by no later 7th September. We fully expect to have more details on this process from Ofqual by the end of next week and will update the website.

It is essential that you register your intentions by these dates, even if you are unsure. You can do both at the same time and then opt out if you wish.

At 8am on Thursday 13th August we will release our A level results through FROG. We piloted this system just before the summer holiday and we know the vast majority of students accessed their college email during this pilot.
 
We are here to support you with your results and so, if you want to talk about possible next steps and your options, please phone us on 01373 465353, option 6, between 9am and 4pm on Thursday 13th August.

PRESS RELEASE

13th August 2020
 
Our class of 2020 has shown exceptional resilience and strength in the face of the most extraordinary circumstances. We are so proud of you and have missed you over these past months; we look forward to a time in the future when we can celebrate your achievements.
 
As you receive your grades today, I want you to know that adjustments have been made by the exam boards. Some of the calculated grades your teachers spent hours over; worried about doing the right and fair thing for each and every one of you, have been downgraded as part of a national statistics management plan.
 
My concerns aren't about algorithms, which model and manage national statistics. My concerns are about the life chances of young people and giving everyone a fair start in life. Therefore, if you do feel you would like to speak to us about appealing your grade, please do so. Our phone line is open from 9am to 4pm today or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., if you prefer to write.
 
We are still waiting to see what the appeal process will actually look like but once we do have the detail, we will share it on our website.
 
In usual times I would show comparisons in results with previous years and share individual students' achievements but that doesn't seem appropriate given the Government's decisions around appeals and resits. I will wait until all results are finalised before any comparisons are made.
 
Suffice to say, we will always support you as alumni of Frome College.  You should always be proud of the fact that you have had a good education here and I would like to think you will use that good education to do good in society.
 
I wish you a bright future and hope to see you soon,
 
 
Emma Reynolds
