Welcome to Rhyddings, which serves the East Lancashire old mill town of Oswaldtwistle and surrounding area. It has been at the heart of the community for nearly 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, quite literally with a recently completed capital building programme. Uniquely, whilst this was taking place the school was temporarily off-site for the academic years’ 2019-2021, returning in September 2021 to an impressive multi million pound refurbished and new build campus boasting excellent facilities. Read more here or watch.
We are also a founding member within a newly formed Multi Academy Trust – LET Education Trust https://let-edu.org/ . This includes two primary and two secondary schools within Hyndburn. This post will be with the school, but as part of the trust, and this will afford the successful candidate greater opportunity to work collaboratively.
The school is also expanding and has moved from 4 form entry to 6 form entry within the last 18 months.
The school continues 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.
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 lessons.
