Transcription

I think there's a real spirit of commitment and concern and affection I guess for every student who comes here and a recognition that each student is unique. The faculty, the staff truly care about the progression of the students here . You're not just a number, you're not just a student - and when you're working towards a goal - that type of support means everything. I had an ill mom from a young age and I watched her go through a lot of medical treatments So being exposed to that definitely put me in the state of mind to want to help people - and it's been a dream and passion of mine. It has been very challenging being a single mother of two boys, who are very wild and crazy but they are my motivation and I do it for them so I just know in the end it will be a great result. I didn't think I was cut out for college - I was raised sort of with an open mindset towards college where you can go if you want to or you don't need to go. I thought that the only thing in college for me was sports - I didn't think I could do it academically. I've taken a lot of chemistry - general chemistry - and organic chemistry and it has challenged me in new ways and really actually empowered me and taught me that I can do something when I apply myself to it. Yeah it's a common thing that we see all the time - students come in and either they don't have any idea what they want to be or what they want to do - or they come in with an idea that they want to pursue based off of what their parents told them. So one of the things that we do is just listen - just listen to what the student has to say - try to figure out the why - what their motivations are for what they're what they're pursuing - and then work on identifying opportunities that work best for that student. Because the one thing we know is that if you're pursuing something that you're not happy in - you'll be right back at square one years later looking to to get another job or changing careers So our classrooms are very reflective of the real working world. There's a recent Chronicle of Higher Education article out that said people have the greatest respect for community colleges and I think that's new for people to have that kind of respect and I think more and more employers are looking at the completion of a degree at a community college as a sign of grit and focus and determination and obviously an individual who balanced many different obligations and responsibilities and put it all together and made it work and showed persistence and success BCC is my reimagining my passport my new start my opportunity my solution

History

Formerly Frogmore Comprehensive School, then Frogmore Community School, it also used to include a Sixth Form College originally called the Blackwater Valley Centre (BVC) which was fully absorbed when the school took its present name at the end of the 1990s. The school re-branded the sixth form as "FCAS" (Frogmore Centre for Advanced Studies) in 2005, but disbanded after only two years[1], forcing a partnership with The Sixth Form College, Farnborough. The college still runs adult learning through the University of the Third Age. It at first co-operated with Yateley School but gradually expanded in the 1980s. The school is situated on campus with Potley Hill County Primary School, Potley Hill Pre-School, Frogmore Leisure Centre and Frogmore Day Care Centre.

The Headteacher of Frogmore in the 1990s was Paul Harwood, who left the school to become one of the first 'super-heads' (that would be deployed to take over failing schools nationally). Peter Green became Headteacher in 1999 and left the school in 2008. He was succeeded by Sarah Howells.

In 2014, Sarah Howells temporarily left the school to become headteacher at Cove School, Hampshire as they went into special measures[2]. As Mrs Howells left, Mr Chris Vaudin stepped in as the Head of School. In March 2015 it was announced that Mrs Howells would become 'executive head' of both Frogmore Community College and Cove School whilst Mr Chris Vaudin remained in charge of the school, an arrangement which was in place until the end of the 2015/16 school year. Howells then left Frogmore in December 2017 to become the Founding Headteacher of King's Academy, Binfield[3], and was succeeded by former Deputy Head and Head of School, Chris Vaudin.

Lightning strike of 2014

On 29 April 2014, eyewitnesses in Yateley described the area being lit up in "blinding white" before the "loudest thunder" they had ever heard. Potley Hill Primary School, which is located next to Frogmore Community College on the same campus, and the Frogmore Leisure Centre both closed. A tree and a building roof at Potley Hill were both hit - no students were injured but the debris from the tree smashed through several of the school's windows. The lightning also struck several parts of Frogmore Community College and parts of the school had to be temporarily restricted due to electrical safety issues. There was a power surge in Potley Hill Primary School, Frogmore Leisure Centre and Frogmore Community College, causing fire alarms, security cameras and wireless networks to go down. A spokesman for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Crews from Yateley and Hartley Wintney went to the leisure centre at approximately 12:56pm... There was no fire but a power surge had caused the automatic fire alarm to activate... They stayed on the scene until 2:52pm to make sure everything was OK.".[4]
