This is an exciting time to be joining our thriving Sixth Form at Frome College, as we look to build upon results which have strengthened year on year. We have a proven track record of success that continues to improve; one of the broadest range of subjects in the area; and a total commitment to student-focused support and challenge. Many of our student’s progress to university and we have an excellent success rate in ensuring students achieve their first choice for higher education, including Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. Equally, large numbers of students are successful in securing highly competitive apprenticeships.
 
Our student body is extremely diverse, with students able to pursue a curriculum that is tailored to meet their needs. Those with top GCSE grades are encouraged to pursue three A-levels including the most rigorous academic subjects such as further maths, English literature, the humanities, and sciences. They can also add EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) in year 13. For those with high ambitions but lower GCSE grades, our suite of vocational courses such as health and social care, childcare and sport provide students with desirable, workplace-ready skills. We are particularly proud of our reputation as a centre of excellence for the visual and expressive arts and have added Fashion A-level to the wide range of creative courses we offer from 2021. Our Course guide on the Sixth Form Section of the Frome College website (Join Us tab) details our full curriculum offer.
 
The demands of the new linear A-levels and reformed BTECs are substantial. To succeed, students need a combination of high-quality teaching and a dedicated approach to independent study. We can guarantee the former, and our pastoral programme is specifically designed to help students develop the latter, boosting their independent learning skills and resilience. 
 
Above all, we seek to help our Sixth Formers develop into well-rounded and responsible young adults. To help prepare students for life in the wider world we offer a bespoke programme of personal, social, heath and economic education. Students are also supported in seeking career specific work experience and volunteering opportunities throughout the year. Finally, our thriving student union offers a myriad of opportunities for aspiring leaders and gives students a real say in their Sixth Form experience. If you have any questions or need help with the application process, please contact Claire Connor, Sixth Form administrator by telephone on 01373 469014 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
