A new exhibition now open at Brigg Heritage Centre traces the proud history of Sir John Nelthorpe School back to the 17th century.
This is bound to generate major interest as thousands of people were educated at SJN and its forerunners, Brigg Grammar School and Brigg Girls' High School.
Our Place in Time 1669-2019 sees the Heritage Centre, the school, volunteers and ex-pupils combining to celebrate 350 years' education through the exhibition.
Opening hours at the centre are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10am to 2pm, plus 10am to 3pm on Saturdays.
Pop in over the coming weeks and take a look; admission is free - donations accepted if you want to show your appreciation.
Sir John Nelthorpe left a legacy on his death in 1669 to provide a free school in Brigg, later known as the boys' grammar school.
Brigg Girls' High School opened in 1919, making this its centenary year. Originally it used town centre buildings, moving to Wrawby Road in the 1930s.
Sir John Nelthorpe School was formed in 1976 - a comprehensive using the former grammar and high school sites.
The original Brigg schoolroom, off Grammar School Road, is still in use today and is the town's only grade one listed building.
PICTURED: A portrait of Sir John Nelthorpe - familiar to generations of pupils from their school days in Brigg. He looked down on many an assembly from his lofty perch on the wall near the entrance to the original schoolroom. As the old Brigg Grammar School song says: "Our founder gave broad acres to open wide the door of learning's mystic temple to every devotee." He left lands to provide rental income and decreed that learning should be gratis (free) to make it available to a wide range of youngsters. Does this suggest he would have supported comprehensive education in our era?
