School Trips

Here at Reddish Vale High School, we take great pride in the vast array of additional opportunities we are able to provide to pupils.

Learning inside the classroom is the key success in GCSE's, but we also believe that so much more knowledge and skills can be developed beyond the classroom.

For more information about school trips, please contact the school.


People's History Museum & MOSI Visit
On 17th November 2021, pupils enjoyed a trip to the Peoples History Museum and MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry). They learnt about the Industrial Revolution and how Unions were formed in democratic Britain in the 1800s. Also investigating the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 understanding about revolutionaries, reformers, workers etc., that influenced change.

In the MOSI, pupils were very engaged in the science activities and games that were on display, as well as a scheduled display of the textile machines that were operational in a presentation of its then cutting-edge technology. All the pupils were well-behaved and enjoyed the trip.

Mock Courts
Year 8 students visited Manchester Metropolitan University to carry out a mock trial in their mock courtroom on Wednesday 23rd March. Year 8 Citizenship students study a unit on crime, so it was a fantastic opportunity for them to see a courtroom in action, learn more about the different roles in the courts, and also prepare and act out a trial.

The jury found our defendant guilty. Well done to the prosecution team!
