About the School
Thrybergh Academy and Sports College is a mixed comprehensive, with approximately 600 students between eleven and sixteen on the roll and serves an area to the north-east of Rotherham, semi-rural in character despite the surrounding industrial environment and our students come from a wide variety of social backgrounds.
The original building was opened in 1956, since which time various additions have been made to improve the specialist facilities. These include the Sports Centre and extensions housing Technology rooms for Food, Graphics and Electronics and Studio equipment for both Health Related Exercise and Drama.
Accommodation also includes a Learning Resource Centre with fiction, reference and careers sections, five Science laboratories and a range of specialist rooms for English, Mathematics, Geography, History, Modern Languages (French), Art, Religious Education, Information and Communication Technology, Physical Education and the Learning Support Team.
The school has undergone an extensive refurbishment and building programme. A new building was opened in September 2005 and all the work was finished in summer 2006.
There are twenty acres of playing fields including football and rugby pitches, a cricket square, hockey pitches and a athletics track. The use of these facilities – together with our Sports Centre – enables us to offer the widest range of sporting opportunities to our students.
The school provides plentiful student access to the latest computer technology through classrooms and the Learning Resource Centre.
