It was an absolute joy to spend Tuesday evening celebrating the achievements of our students. The key stage 4 awards evening, held at Camberley Theatre, provided a wonderful opportunity to catch up with the class of 2019 and find out what life after Frogmore has held for each of them. It was fantastic to hear all about their adventures! It was equally fantastic to have a moment to celebrate with our current year 11 award winners who have made such a tremendous start to the year. Please read below for a full list of all of this year’s prize-winners.
On the evening, I commented on the strength of our student leadership; a facet of Frogmore about which I am incredibly proud. Josh and Lily gave a vote of thanks to our guest, Jamie Gane, with real confidence and composure. Equally impressive have been the assemblies they’ve led this week and the initiatives they are driving with their team.
In their assemblies this week, the student leadership team provided updates on three key areas. Firstly, they detailed their plans for their fundraising day next Thursday, which includes a non-uniform day, a cake sale and a staff v students dodgeball game. The student leaders are consulting every tutor group in order to listen to the general student body’s ideas for how the money raised can best be spent.
Secondly, they discussed the plans for the redevelopment of the school’s main toilets. They described the plans for the new unisex facility and launched a design competition for the screen that will be at the entrance to the new block.
Finally, they introduced the new Student Charter that has been drawn up by a student focus group led by Emerald and Kieran. The charter explores what The Frogmore Standard (being respectful, responsible and safe) means to students in practice. The student leaders are going to visit every tutor group over the next week to introduce this charter and encourage all students to sign up to its expectations.
This type of leadership, impacting on so many aspects of school life, is absolutely phenomenal. Just the week before, our assemblies were led by our peer mentors, who described actions we can all take to tackle bullying. We are genuinely blessed to have students who care so much about their school and about implementing change and improvement for the benefit of all.
With leaders like this in our midst, the future looks very bright indeed!

Peer Mentor Team News
The Peer Mentor team at Frogmore Community College is a group of year 10 students dedicated to making the school a better place for its pupils. They are determined to create a comfortable space for the newer, younger students in particular, who may be feeling overwhelmed by secondary school life and are also there to support anyone who may need it. The team also provides support to fellow pupils by helping them with their reading skills through one-to-one sessions.
November 11th – 15th marked Anti-Bullying week 2019 with the theme of ‘Change’ being the focus. Over the course of three days, the peer mentors were responsible for presenting a series of informative assemblies to the school. The assemblies were largely based on all that the team had learned during a day long training session at the beginning of October, hosted by Yateley school and the Diana Award charity. For more details on this please follow this link: https://www.antibullyingpro.com/
During the assemblies, the team discussed the three main types of bullying, ‘verbal’, ‘physical’ and ‘indirect’, helping to clarify what bullying looks and feels like with the aim of spreading awareness throughout the school community. Pupils were also encouraged to think about their own role when witnessing bullying behaviour.
