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.


Rewards Trip to Reddish Vale
80 year 7 pupils attended an end of year rewards trip to Reddish Vale to take part in a range of Ecology activities in July 2021 that link to their Science studies. Pupils participated in activities such as pond dipping, woodland trail, quadrants and transects. 

The pupils really enjoyed themselves and engaged fully with the activities which provided them with an insight into the sampling techniques used by Ecologists.
