Transition Day

Welcome to Reddish Vale High School.

Before you start at our school in September, we would like to welcome you to our school on a Transition Day.

Unfortunately, due to the rise in Covid cases across Stockport, we have made the decision to cancel this year's Transition Day which was scheduled for 1st July 2021. 

The transition day will be postponed until September and further details regarding this event will follow soon. 

Please see Mrs Hanson's letter regarding transition day at the bottom of this page for more information.
