Assistant Principal, Jonathan Black, said: "During my short time here I have had the pleasure of seeing our students displaying tenacity, good humour and grit during one of the most strenuous times in their lives. Staff at the College are keen to reflect upon best-practice and work hard to ensure no student is left behind; their hard work is clearly having a huge impact on student achievement. I look forward to playing my part in ensuring that we continue to develop and improve upon our already excellent results to ensure the young people of Frome have access to a high quality sixth form."
