TO PRESERVE THE MEMORIES
RYHOPE COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL
Ryhope Comprehensive School first opened in September 1969 following the amalgamation of Ryhope Secondary Modern School and Robert Richardson Grammar School to form a unique progressive school in the north east of England.
The school catered for 1300 pupils across two sites, the North Block and the South Block separated by a main road which eventually was connected by a footbridge
With a colourful history (and notorious name to those unconnected with the school), this is a website devoted to preserving the archives and memories of the school and the people who attended it.
