Issue 308 – Students celebrate exam success including best ever GCSEs

STUDENTS at Frome Community College have been celebrating the school’s best ever set of GCSE results, along with impressive results in A-levels, over the past fortnight.

152 students collected their A-level results when Frome College enjoyed an overall pass rate of 98%. 25% were awarded the top grades of A* or As. Anxious looks soon changed to smiles of relief as students realised they had secured their university places.
The college was delighted to see some of its students achieve the new A* grade, which was introduced this year to differentiate between the top achievers. Students obtaining an A* had to score an A grade overall, as well as achieving 90% or over in each paper in the second year of their course.
Among those students of particular note this year were; Rosa Robson who received 2 of the new A* grades and an A* for her extended project amongst her five grades and has secured a place at Cambridge, Joanne Norris who achieved 2 A*s and an A and Sophie Bartlett, Matthew Collins, Henry Cox, Lauren Goodey, Georgina Irwin, Alice Monk, Hannah O’Shea, Rebecca Shorten and Elizabeth Wisbey who all achieved one of the new A* grades as well as other A-levels. Sarah Dunn and Rachel Buckeridge who achieved 4 A grades, Colleen Adams who achieved 3 A grades and a B and Rebecca Hodge with 3 A grades.
High achiever Rosa Robson, who is now looking forward to starting a course in education with English and drama at Cambridge said, “I’m really happy, I’m over the moon! I want to thank all the teachers who have been really supportive.”
Alice Monk, who achieved an A*, A, and B, explained how nerve-racking the results day was for students. “I was up so late last night, I was so scared! But now this just puts everything in place for the future.” Alice will now take a gap year and apply to study medicine.
A number of students also took the new extended paper for the highest achieving candidates. Wendy Missons, principal commented, “Our students are only too aware of how much competition there is these days, so I am delighted. Early indications are that this is a bumper year for Frome Community College. I have only come across one student in tears and when I asked her why she simply replied ‘I got my university place’. Congratulations to them all”.
The following Tuesday, the college was delighted to announce its best ever GCSE results. The 359 year11 students achieved a record-breaking 68% A*-C grades at GCSE, with 97.5% achieving 5 or more GCSE passes. 27 students achieved 12 or more A*-C grades. Among the many successes were Olivia Barnes, James Creed, Sarah Sinkins, Alice Soh, Milo Deane, Thea Incledon, Albany Meikle, Imogen O’Neill and Polly Streather, all of whom achieved at least 11 A-A* grades.
Wendy Missons, principal said, “Results are improving year on year – not just the headline figures, but for individual students and subjects. Huge congratulations are due to the students, families and staff who worked so hard for this. I would particularly like to mention Andrew Chogugudza, Lee Davies and Jordan Baxter, who succeeded against the odds.”
Cllr John Osman, Somerset County Council cabinet member for children & young people said, “Congratulations to all students on their GCSE results which are reward for the huge effort and hard work they have made in their studies. I would also like to congratulate school leaders, teachers and staff who have educated and guided these young people through their successful studies.”
