We are proud of our history. We have given an unbroken service to education since 1552 and our traditions still influence the way we work today...

Founded in the reign of Edward VI, our school owes its existence to the generosity of Sir William and Dame Alice Harpur. Their charitable grant of land and finance became the Harpur Trust, and their vision continues through our scholarships and bursaries.
