Gandhi: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Mr R. Andrews: Farm Manager

September 2019 is an exciting time for the pupils of Reddish Vale High School: 20 of our Year 9 pupils are starting on the new Animal Care course.

Our BTEC First in Animal Care provides pupils with an introduction to the animal care sector, and links to our long established school farm.  Animal care is an important part of Britain’s land-based economy.  The course provides pupils with the key principles, knowledge, understanding and skills, all relevant to the animal care sector. Learners will study: practical aspects of animal care; animal behaviour and safe handling; feeding, accommodation and safe handling; pupils will also undertake work placements on the school farm.
