This summer 3 members of staff and 11 students from Outwood Academy Valley undertook a 3 week expedition to Cambodia and Laos. Whilst in Laos they trekked through the Phou Hin Poun Jungle and spent 5 days at theTansoum project where they taught English and built a wall around the village school. In Cambodia time was spent visiting The UNESCO World Heritage site of Angkor Wat and the thought provoking Killing Fields. Below is a selection of some of the amazing moments that were captured on camera.

Parent View gives you the chance to tell us what you think about your child’s school.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child's school.
