SJN - Our Place in Time project

This video rendering shows how the original old school room at Sir John Nelthorpe would look following its refurbishment for the 'Our Place in Time' project. This would serve as a reception area for both the school and a new performing arts centre for Brigg.

You might recognise the Middleton Door in the background.

If you can offer time, expertise or funding to help make this a reality, do get in touch. We will be emailing members as soon as more details are announced.






BGS Football 1924-5 & 1926-7

Below are a couple of old photos of BGS football between 1924-5 (left) and 1926-7 (right). Can you spot any old family members?






Briggensians Dinner 2018

This prevented 10 members from reaching Elsham including the main speaker. Fortunately the Headteacher, Mr Rob Biglands, was able to expand his address and introduce the "our Place in Time" project which will be reported separately.

Members enjoyed a splendid meal and were able to take advantage of a little extra time to renew old friendships and bring their contacts up to date.

2019 marks 350 years since the Grammar School was founded and 100 years in the Girls' High School was formed so events will be a little different next year as we coordinate activities with the school in a joint celebration.

Briggensians 50-year reunion

The group of Briggensians returning after 50 years since they started at Brigg Grammar School were welcomed back to the hallowed portals by the Headteacher, Mr Rob Biglands and Tom Nelthorpe.

They were given freedom to visit their old classrooms and laboratories plus the boarding house. This invoked many fond memories and stories of staff, other contemporaries and school days.

There was also an opportunity to see the plans and visualise the "Our Place in Time" project that is being launched to celebrate the 2019 anniversaries.
