Our school was built in 1969 in beautiful and spacious grounds between Yateley and Blackwater. The school benefits from bright and airy classrooms, extensive landscaped grounds and sizeable playground and adventure play facilities for the children and community to enjoy.
On 1 September 2013, Frogmore Junior School converted to academy status. This decision was taken by the Secretary of State for Education as the best way of ensuring a rapid improvement in standards at school. An academy is an independent, state-funded school that is detached from local authority control and receives funding directly from the Department for Education. Academies are guided by the national education framework but have greater freedom to make choices that suit the needs of their own pupils, for example, in developing the curriculum and setting budget priorities.
Throughout the change, our mission has remained the same: to provide a warm, engaging and stimulating environment that fosters tolerance and understanding, in which children are able to enjoy learning and develop a lifelong love of knowledge.
We share our site with Tadpoles Preschool and Frogmore Infant School. Our parents enjoy the convenience and flexibility of extended childcare services through a breakfast and after school club on site. We have strong community links with the local parish church, sports clubs such as Darby Green Football Club, Guides and Brownies.
Frogmore Junior School is a member of GLF Schools, the school has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the children mix well through the year groups as well as with their own peers. Playground Buddies and Young Leaders ensure playtimes are enjoyable for everyone, even the shyest members of our school.
The School Council encourages a sense of partnership while democratic representation provides a real context for citizenship education. Pupils develop useful life-skills as well as the opportunity to have their say on current issues and suggest ways to improve their school. Past achievements include:
New playground equipment and markings
“Frogmore's Got Talent” show
Break time snack shop
