Wolverhampton Grammar School, Wolverhampton, West Midlands

Wolverhampton Grammar School dates back to 1515 when the school was founded by Stephen Jenys of the Merchant Taylors' Guild in the town centre. This photograph was taken in 1875, shortly after a new building was built on the Compton Road. It shows the schoolroom with the headmaster's house on the right. It is a fine example of Victorian ' Tudor Revival' style architecture. The original 'Big School' has changed very little although it is now (2009)part of a much larger complex of school buildings.
