Details

The oldest part of the present school buildings will be open and materials relating to the Wakefield Grammar School Foundation's experience of the Great War will be on display.

The Grammar School moved from its original Elizabethan building to its present site in 1855.

Its new home was designed by Richard Lane in the Tudor Gothic style and had been built for the West Riding Proprietary School in 1833-4.

The War Memorial at the front of the school dates from 1921.
