Pedmore currently having a lockdown drill

As part of our standard fire drill, evacuation, lockdown and safety procedures we are currently staging a mock lockdown of the college site. This is a test and ensures that staff and students are familiar with the procedure and confident in the process. We will update this webpage as soon as the test procedure is complete.

Lauren’s Photo wins a Calendar Competition!

Year 11 student's photograph beats off stiff competition

Lauren is a winner!  Our Year 11 student entered a completion ran by Sandwell College to have a design or a photograph featured for a month in their new corporate calendar.  Lauren’s photograph of flowers which she took in her local park was selected for the month of August.   The snap was chosen from hundreds of entries from schools all over the Dudley and Sandwell boroughs.   The calendar has a large distribution to all schools in the districts and over 1200 corporate clients.   Jas Uppal from Sandwell’s School Liaison team came to present copies of the printed calendar to Lauren and also her prize of a £50 Amazon voucher.  Lauren said, “I enjoy photography as a hobby but I didn’t think I’d win, this is a real surprise”. 

This is the second time a Pedmore student’s work has been included in the calendar. Simran, a GCSE Graphics student covered the month of October last year with her spooky sketch.  What a creative lot we have at Pedmore!
