Outdoor Education

From mountain biking to orienteering and kayaking to climbing, there’s something for even the most adventurous pupils at Stockport Grammar School.

The school has a long history of taking pupils on hiking excursions, activity weekends, camping and ski trips. This, teamed with the large number of girls and boys that participate in the school’s Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, means that the majority of pupils have taken advantage of the outdoor education opportunities on offer.

The table below shows Outdoor Education activities for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Due to Covid-19, we are having to run our co-curricular activities in a different way to ensure pupil and staff safety. Current pupils will be informed of the changes by staff. If you have any queries, please get in touch with us.
