(Photograph) - WHEN is a city school not a city school? When it has status as a rural college. Reddish Vale technology college may be in an urban part of Stockport close to Manchester but it is considering applying for the new specialist status because it has its own farm.

The Specialist Schools Trust says urban schools with links to city farms can apply for rural status, even though the specialism was developed for schools in the countryside. Pictured is Reddish Vale's Danny Wilkinson, aged 12. Photograph by PAUL SANDERS
