tainsworthFor those of you who may not have heard, our deputy headteacher, Trevor Ainsworth is retiring this summer after 37 years of teaching at Rhyddings.

Mr Ainsworth began teaching history and music in 1977, the same year the first Star Wars film was released.

Although he is looking forward to life after Rhyddings, he says that it will take time to adjust.

He told the Accrington Observer: “It’s a very peculiar feeling. I’ve spent my working life surrounded by students, parents and teachers. Suddenly not to have that will leave a great big hole. But I can’t deny I’m looking forward to having some time to myself.”

If you would like to send any messages of thanks or good luck to Mr Ainsworth, please email school@rhyddings.co.uk – or get in touch via our Facebook page or Twitter.
