Archbishop Holgate's School

In 1899 140 boys were attending Archbishop Holgate's School. Extensions to the accommodation were made in 1904 and in 1913 new classrooms and a laboratory were added. The premises of Brook Street School were taken over in 1945. The school was given a direct grant up to 1944: the governors then removed it from the list and until 1949 it functioned as an independent school. At that date it became a controlled voluntary secondary grammar school for boarding and day pupils. About 520 boys were attending in 1955. Moved from Lord Mayors Walk premises to Hull Road in the summer of 1963.
