AROUND 750 pupils from Mossley Hollins High School took part in their annual charity walk that is expected to raise about £5,000.
It is the final time the whole school will take part and from next year it will be only for year seven students.
The school said: “This is because of the additional demands of the new exams and the additional learning that is required in each subject in order to achieve good grades in these harder exams.
“We do, however, believe that this event is a particularly good opportunity for our year seven pupils to meet new friends and to develop relationships with other members of their form and year group.
“For that reason, the tradiional sponsored hike will continue for our new year seven students each year.”
Years eight, nine, 10 and 11 took part in an eight-mile trek to Doverstone Reservoir in Greenfield and back while year seven had a shorter route.
The school’s student council will chose the charities that will benefit from the proceeds.
