International Women's Day 2023

Emerging evidence from UNICEF shows a positive association between women school leaders and student performance. Yet in UK state secondary schools, only 38% of school leaders are women. We are very proud that Frome College is bucking that trend. 53.3% of our leaders in College are women; that rises to 61% if you only count our middle leaders. Both our Principal and Vice Principal are female. We believe that for young women, and young men, positive engagement with successful female role models can influence attitudes and values. lt serves as an example – inspiring our young people to live meaningful lives without the constraints imposed by historical gender representations.
