Post-16 Results Day 2021 - Press Release

Tuesday 10 August 2021

Frome College is delighted to report many outstanding achievements in Post 16 qualifications; we are so proud of this cohort of young people who have shown such resilience and determination over the past 18 months. These results are richly deserved and rightly awarded.  

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessment, against national standards, approved and awarded by exam boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic; a healthy opportunity which allows us to concentrate on individual successes rather than percentages and figures. 

Well done to Iris Shulman and Ben Nicolson who have been accepted into Cambridge, as well as Charlie Whiting, Stephanie Verwey and Max Brewster who will being going to Oxford. Special mention for achieving particularly exceptional grades should also go to Isabel Hanney and May Southgate. Excellent progress has also been made by Patrick Mead, Adam Baker and Nico Van Hoen. Chloe Nicholls is also to be commended as she progresses to her apprenticeship. These are just a few names amongst many who have excelled in this challenging year, with the vast majority making their firm or insurance choice for university.  

Thank you to all staff, teaching and support staff, who have maintained College progress over the past year and whose work creates successful futures for our young people. A special thanks must also go to all parents and families whose support and energy have made these results possible. Your children are a credit to you. 

Finally, the year 13 prom last month was a lovely event which celebrated the year group’s success and potential. Thank you to everyone who attended and especially to those people who organised the event so well.  

I wish you a bright, happy and successful future.  

   - Emma Reynolds, Principal
