A market town in England known for its cotton industry, Chorley is located around 20 miles North West of Manchester. In the 1970’s the town was home to a large number of factories which have now been demolished. A few that remain from the said period are Morrison’s chimney and some mill buildings. Chorley finds the origin of its name in two Anglo-Saxon words ‘Ceori’ and ‘ley’ where the former stands for a person of some status and the latter refer to a place name.
Chorley has a number of primary schools which are supported both by the council as well as the church. There are six high schools in Chorley as listed below:
Some of the privately owned schools also run just outside the borough. Children also go to the Runshaw College for further studies which have expanded now into the administration site of ROF Chorley. Another college in Chorley is the Lancashire College that also offers adult education. The Lancashire College also provides exhaustive residential courses to its students. The Chorley Training College (also known as the College Day Training College since 1960) was another college for Chorley based students that functioned till 1981.
