WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF ARCHIVE MATERIAL FROM BURNLEY TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL, TOWNELEY COMPREHENSIVE, & TOWNELEY HIGH SCHOOL 1956 - 2010

The school was formed in August 1956 as Burnley Technical High School following a merger between Heasandford Technical High School for Girls and Towneley Technical High School for Boys. It remained in this form until 1972 when it became Towneley Comprehensive. In 1976 it changed once again, becoming Towneley High School, until its eventual closure in 2010 when activity was transferred to the newly built Unity College as part of the new program of "Super Schools".

These main pages contain archive material of general interest relating to all of the schools over the years. To view material specific to an era then choose the relevant school by selecting from the top menu.

Particular thanks go to Peter Chadwick, Alan Riley, Les Green, Michael Worsdall, Steve Young and Derek Johnson for their contribution to the site in the form of photographs and archive material. Particular thanks to Peter Chadwick for providing a photographic record of the final visit and the demolition phases of the school. Please note that the copyright of all photographs on the site remains with the original contributors.

The site is constantly evolving as new material is added and any relevant material is welcome. At the moment, only the BTHS section is operational as we wait for more information and photographs etc. post 1966, so if you have some old photographs, newspaper cuttings, school programs or memories of the school that you would like to share then we would like to hear from you. In the meantime - enjoy!
