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.
