Rhyddings serves the East Lancashire old mill town of
Oswaldtwistle and surrounding area. It has been at the heart of the community for 90 years and enjoys good transport links via the M65 corridor and adjoining networks of M6 and M66.
The school has been in a period of transition, having returned to our permanent site following a £10 million re-development, back in the heart of our community, and establishing a more normal return to school following the pandemic.
We are also part of a group of founding schools in Hyndburn to form a new multi-academy trust (MAT), within Hyndburn, with a neighbouring high school and two primary schools. The LET Education Trust will provide exceptional education across its schools, placing staff development and opportunity as a priority for improvement.
The school is also expanding and has moved from 4 form entry to 6 form entry within the last 18 months.
We continue to work hard to prepare the young people we serve and help them realise and reach their potential, providing them with the very best educational experiences. This of course can only be achieved through high levels of attendance and family engagement.
Pupils are well supported through our Pastoral Year and House Continent systems. This provides the support pupils need to perform well across the curriculum as well as healthy competition throughout the year.
We have an active extra-curricular programme and run a number of annual residential trips both here and abroad. Close links with the local Rotary Club provides access to bespoke programmes, community work and charitable activities. Large numbers of pupils complete their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.
Our curriculum areas are largely suited in a combination of specialist facility and traditional classroom space. We have a 3-year KS3 and 2-year KS4, offering EBacc, should pupils choose to do so. We have a 25 period week of 1 hour
