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.

BBC Broadcast live from PTC!

Students and staff dazzle all on the Sunny and Shay Show!  

We were so excited this week when we were given the unique opportunity of having the BBC broadcast a live radio show from our school!  As we take part in the annual BBC schools project BBC School Report every year, the BBC contacted us to see if we would be interested in getting involved in BBC WM's Summer tour around the Midlands and we jumped at the chance! 

On Tuesday 20th June we hosted the Sunny and Shay show from 2:00-4:00 here at Pedmore and welcomed the presenters, producers and runners for the aftenoon.  The programme was packed with a wide variety of activities featuring just some of the things our students and staff get involved in at every day.  This included:

  • Our choir Pedmore Voices singing two songs live
  • Students Sam Rowley and Anna Barnard interviewed about their sporting and performance achievements
  • Our winning bakers from an schools bake off contest that morning
  • Our Drama group performing an extract from their play "Willa Wonkie"
  • Our Media Challenge team taking about their experience at a competition and meeting BBC presenters and the Royal Television Society last week
  • Our Deputy Head David Scriven talking about his 3 Peaks Challenge in 24 hours with a team of 10 on 23 June, raising money for charities, donate at www.ourthreepeaks.co.uk 
  • Our Head Gareth Lloyd interviewed about aspects of education and future developments at PTC

The atmosphere in school was electric and classrooms tuned into the live broadcast all contained in our music room
