Governor Pen Portraits

Mr Hardcastle

Interim Chair of Governors

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.

Co-opted Governor

Mr Rowlands

Vice Chair of Governors

I grew up in a small town is South Wales called Caerphilly. After leaving school I went to work for Asda where I worked on all the departments. After ten years I left with a wealth of experience in admin and customer service.

I moved to Sheffield in 2000 and started working for DWP where I started as an admin officer. I’m currently a disability employment adviser working with people with health conditions, helping them find work. When we moved to Thrybergh in 2013 we chose Thrybergh Primary for our two children who love their school and enjoy the time they spend learning and being with their friends.

I became a parent governor to help and support all the children in the school so they can get an effective education; that will help them to achieve their goals and dreams, giving them the best possible life.
