  • School of Rock

    Rehearsals are well underway for our school performance of the Andrew Lloyd-Webber hit musical 'School of Rock'. 

    Based on the hilarious hit movie, the show follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a few extra bucks by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight-A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. With only 3 performances on the evenings of the 9th, 10th, and 11th of February, be sure to get your tickets early from The Merlin Theatre box office

  • Rotarians donate benches for SEND students

    Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Rotary Clubs of Frome and Frome Inner Wheel, SEND students at Frome College now have benches to use in their outdoor spaces. Rebecca Beveridge, Deputy SENCO said “We recognised that our SEND students did not always feel confident in using our outdoor spaces at college and we realised that we needed a bespoke area. Our first step was to provide seating for our students where they would be able to eat lunch, have a space outside to regulate if needed and simply be able to talk with their friends in our lovely College grounds. The Rotary Clubs of Frome and Frome Inner Wheel once again stepped up and have very kindly donated these beautiful wooden benches which have allowed our students to do just this, and we could not be more grateful for their generosity.” Pictured are:- Students Maria, Archie, Mackenzie and Courtney Lenka Grimes, Frome Town Rotary Sheridan Curtis, Inner Wheel Alan Glover and Mike Darville, Frome Rotary

  • Rotarians Hand Over Cheque

    Rotarians from Frome Selwood Rotary Club have delighted the newest members of Frome College by funding the year 9 DofE taster sessions, which took place last week. The whole of the year were given the chance to spend a night under cover, at Pitch Perfect Camping in Woolverton, before hiking back to school the following morning. Trip leader, Theo Pavli said “We can’t thank the Rotary Club enough for allowing us to give our new students this chance to experience what a DofE trip is like. Outdoor experiences help young people to develop self-confidence, independence, and self-esteem, as well as making them aware of limits, boundaries, and challenges.” The Rotary Club also funded vouchers that will be sent out to the most vulnerable families in our community to help feed their teens over the school holidays.
