FOUR schools in The Stourbridge Educational Trust are due to hold a fun-packed Olympics-style sports event this Thursday (July 1) to coincide with National School Sports Week.

Pupil teams of four boys and four girls from years seven and eight from all four schools (Pedmore Technology College, Redhill School, Ridgewood High School and Thorns Community College) are due to compete in swimming, table tennis, ultimate frisbee and softball competitions.

Shropshire swimming star and 2012 Olympic hopeful Alexandra Hooper, aged 18, is also due to attend the event - which is being supported by staff and students from Stourbridge College and King Edward VI College.
