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.

The Stourbridge Educational Trust (TSET) was established ‘to advance the education of the pupils and local community’. This is achieved through planning a series of joint learning activities and events throughout the year where pupils and students from each of the institutions can work together.

Current members of TSET

Pedmore Technology College and Community School

Thorns Community College

Redhill School and Specialist Language College

Ridgewood High School

Stourbridge College

King Edward VI College

By working together the Trust enables the schools and colleges to offer a wider range of learning activities to our young people, as well as developing stronger community cohesion.

Examples of activities from last year included:

The Night of Champions Award Evening – a bi-annual event where students from all TSET schools are nominated for a wide variety of awards by their peers

Oxford University tasters and residential – Gifted and Talented students from Trust schools get a taste of Oxford University life, attending special lectures, meeting staff and students and using the facilities

The TSET Olympics – a bi-annual TSET schools sporting event held at Himley Hall

The Trust also delivers highly effective continuing professional development for teachers and other staff. The Aspiring Middle Leaders course has run for many years and has had a significant impact across Stourbridge. The creation of The Stourbridge Teaching School Alliance through the Trust has enabled us to develop this provision further through the NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML courses which we run in association with Edge Hill University.
