The above photo kindly sent in by David Millard was taken in 1958, which is in the early period of the Schools History




Thrybergh Comprehensive School was built in the mid 1950's and was a much needed addition in the area. Mr. Winch an ex Sergeant was the first Headmaster and came from nearby Wath Comprehensive. The School came at a time when the children who were born in the birth rate explosion during the years following the second world war [ the "Baby Boomers "as we were later termed ] were approaching the age of eleven, the age for commencing a secondary School.  With the local Schools in the area busting at the seams with pupils Thrybergh Comp. was a necessity. Catering for the Children of Thrybergh, Dalton, and Ravenfield the School since those earlier years as had a great level of achievement in the area. Gradually expanding its facilities the School is also now well known for its sporting amenities.

In a recent report it was stated that although the School faced challenging circumstances the Staff of the School showed commitment to the Pupils by their efforts. Of recent years in Australia I have seen a lot of titles being introduced and given to the members of School Staff , [ Teachers are no longer allowed to be just Teacher anymore] However I have to give this title top marks  held by Steve Stewart, who at the time of writing is the Aim Higher Co-ordinator at Thrybergh Comprehensive.


The scheme is funded by the Aim Higher/P4P, which is a programme committing over £190m to increase the number of young people from more diverse backgrounds who apply for and enter higher education. This year [2003] Steve took part in arranging for pupils of Thrybergh to attend Sheffield Hallam University. the visit was a huge success for the kids and organizer's, Kate Brown, from the University’s Student Services Centre is quoted as saying “They were a fantastic bunch of kids"
