This he does know was the case. Was Rhyddings school in Rhyddings Street before amalgamation. These are the questions my husband would like answered.
Couldn't think where it could have been located on Rhydings Street Irene, was built in its present place didn't move there

Rhyddings School was always on Haworth Street in Ossy, never on Rhyddings Street and Cashman may confirm if Rhyddings did move up to Moor End was it maybe just those Tech 1st forms coming under Rhyddings admin' etc?
Thanks for that DtheP47. Things are starting to get more clear. Rhyddings in Rhyddings street was just a stab in the dark. My husband was beginning to think after reading some of the threads maybe he had never been to the tech after all. One boy from Rhyddings was in my husbands form.

If you go to Street level on Google Earth and put in Haworth Street Oswaldtwistle your husband will see the old building with the add-ons on the left.

Re: Accrington secondary tech/Rhyddings

When I looked at the old Tech building on google maps, it had a new sign outside - 'Oswaldtwistle School'.

When googling that I found -
http://www.iris.ac/sites/default/fil...e%20School.pdf

..so it is now a special school for disruptive pupils.

Yep twas that i think everywhere? My problem was the stupid "Education Board" wanted to send me to a school down Blackburn, that i had NOT chosen. will explain next time we bump into each other D, if we remember.
