Mrs Britton

Teaching Staff Governor

I have been a teacher at Thrybergh Primary School since 1997. For most of that time I have taught in Y6, and to be honest, I love teaching Y5/6. I am also the subject leader for maths and science.

I live with my husband, Craig, and my 13-year-old daughter, Darcie. We also have a rescue greyhound, Inka, and a very badly-behaved terrier – Marley.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding and currently have two horses. As a family, we love to go to Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby, Norfolk (on the boat) and the Isle of White using our touring caravan.

Richard Chamberlain

Chair (Co-opted)

Originally from Preston, I have lived in London for 10 years and currently reside in Sheffield where I have lived since 2016 with my family.

Since leaving university and following a brief career in finance, I have worked in the recruitment sector, advising professionals in Yorkshire on their careers and supporting organisations with their recruitment strategies. I am currently studying towards an MBA at Sheffield Management School.

A father to 2 young children, I became a Governor because I am passionate about supporting young children and making sure they are in the best possible environment to thrive, develop life skills and ultimately build a livelihood and a career for themselves.

I am proud to support and represent Thrybergh Primary School.
