“Ms. Blofeld has been incredible to speak too. She’s shown interest in what we’ve discussed, and has helped me greatly in managing my ASD, I cannot recommend her enough.”

– Jake Horler, Student

“I have been working with Ms B in resit GCSE lessons after school.  I have found it helpful practising with past papers and discussing how to answer the questions to the best of my ability. I think  I will be successful this time.”

– K. O-S., Student

“Alison Blofeld has been an exceptional learning mentor and an asset to the sixth form at Frome College and the school more widely. She has proven to be an enormous support in helping our students with both their academic organisation and emotional well-being.”

– Andrew Davies, Frome College

“Alison has been an excellent mentor and advocate. She understood that my daughter needs recognition (of her abilities), routines and reminders to support her progress. Alison acted as a liaison between home and school, so that we had regular information about her progress.”

– Hannah, Parent

“Talking to Ms Blofeld is always helpful about apprenticeships and what I am planning to do beyond A level. Her door is always open (metaphorically) ; she offers a calm space to talk about whatever is going on for me. I can ask about English, exams, anything at all.”

– Louis, Student
