Posted October 11th, 2011 by Birmingham Conservation Trust with No Comments

Bournville College, which opened its new £66m development in Longbridge this September, is searching for memories from those who have studied, worked or lived in the local area during the college’s 112 year history.

Students and residents are invited to submit photos, videos, soundbites and stories of their time studying or living nearby to document how the college has evolved the educational experience it offers. All of the content submitted will be collated online as part of a Digital Time Capsule which will be launched later this month at a VIP event.

Norman Cave, Principal at Bournville College, said

The Digital Time Capsule will allow members of the public to see how far the college has come over the past century, highlighting key achievements and landmark events in its history, as well as the experience we offer students that goes far beyond education. Once launched the Time Capsule will remain open, creating a legacy for past, present and future students.

Submit your photo, video, audio or story by visiting or by emailing for more details.

All content will be made public on October 26th as part of the official launch party at Bournville College.
