We are ambitious for our students and work tightly within the Frome Learning Partnership (FLP) to strive towards a continuous excellent education at all key stages.  We are currently exploring the formation of a Frome Trust MAT alongside members of the FLP.  Although providing for middle school age range, the Academy is deemed as a Secondary school.
