I would like to say welcome to the children and Staff of the School who are using the site to research the history of Thrybergh. Please consider this your page, contact me should you have any questions, or would like to add information on this page.

Please note this is not an official School site, anyone wishing to contact the School should do so via the School contact  information



The photo's below taken 1930 /31  have been kindly sent in by Peter O' Brien who is an ex pupil of St. Gerard's,  over the years Peter has become somewhat of an historian regarding St. Gerard's. It is fortunate for the rest of us that people like Peter have the foresight to collect and preserve photos and information, enabling future generations to enjoy a glimpse of times gone by. Here below is a great record of the some of the first Pupils of St. Gerards School. Often School photos like the one below are the only photos remaining of some of our ancestors, and possibly the only photos ever taken during their Childhood. The second photo is really special for me as it contains an image of my eldest sister, and a cousin I have never met. It also contains Parents of Children I went to School with. The third photo contains a young Danny Williams, who grew up to be one of the most popular figures in the Rotherham Area as a star player for Rotherham United. The Headmaster Mr. James Conroy on the left  was to remain at St. Gerard's until his retirement which was approx 1962.
As you will see there are a few names missing, if you know any of those names please let me know via the link at the foot of the page.
