Pent Valley Technology College (formerly Pent Valley Secondary Modern School) is a secondary school situated in Cheriton, Kent, England. The school attracts pupils from Folkestone, Hawkinge and Hythe.
The school was formed by the merger of Harcourt Secondary School for Girls, Harcourt Primary School and Morehall Secondary School for Boys in the early 1970s.
In 2011 plans were announced to demolish the school in order to regenerate the original building. All plans have been postponed because of a government spending review.
Pent Valley Leisure Centre
The Valley Leisure Centre (VLC) was renamed the Pent Valley Leisure Centre (PVLC) to make it appear more connected to the school.
In 2005, Valley FM (formerly KSS Radio) was opened as part of the Leisure Centre development. The station was formally opened in February 2006 by Folkestone officials, and has since been broadcasting online and in-school. It is open to the public as a community radio station.
The station was run by Kent Safe Schools (part of Kent County Council) until April 2010, when ownership was handed over to the school itself. It is now working toward greater community involvement.
