Frome Community Learning Partnership
Seventeen schools in and around Frome work together for the benefit of children in all three phases of education.

First schools are responsible for the education of 4-9 year olds, the Middle schools for the 9 -13 year olds and students complete their schooling at Frome College. Critchill School supports children with learning difficulties in all three phases. The Federation also has provision for nursery education and children with hearing and language impairment.

We are all committed to this system which allows the children to benefit from specialist teachers and facilities appropriate to their age range.

Liaison between the various schools in the system is seen of the highest importance ensuring that:

The transfer of individual students is carried through effectively and sensitively.

The curriculum on offer in Frome affords every child the opportunity to achieve his/her potential in the National Curriculum and to experience a wide and varied curriculum in which each stage builds on the achievements made at the previous schools.
