About Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School

Welcome to Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School, which serves the East Lancashire old mill town of Oswaldtwistle and surrounding area of Hyndburn. It has been at the heart of the community for over 85 years and although a smaller than average high school we cater for pupils from a diverse range of backgrounds. The school enjoys good transport links via the M65 corridor and adjoining networks of M6 and M66.

The school is in a period of transition, quite literally with a planned capital building programme. Uniquely, whilst this is taking place the school has been temporarily off-site for the academic years 2019-2021, to allow for demolition and construction work. Therefore, we are currently based at Hameldon College, Coal Clough Lane, Burnley for this academic year but return to Oswaldtwistle in September 2021.
