Queen Elizabeth Grammar School dates back to 1591. Mary Queen of Scots was dead, the Spanish Armada had been defeated and, in the following time of relative peace, the leading citizens of Wakefield could think about the future education of their boys with some assurance. On November 19, 1591 the Royal charter was granted by Queen Elizabeth I to fourteen men to act as Governors of the new school; it read: "Of our especial grace, certain knowledge and mere motion, we do, will grant and ordain for us, our heirs and successors, that hereafter there be and shall be one Grammar School of Queen Elizabeth at Wakefield, for the teaching, instructing and bringing up of children and youth in grammar, and other good learning, to continue to that use forever."

The school moved to the present site in 1854 and is a fitting setting for our annual Antiques Fair. We'd be delighted if you would join us for what promises to be another wonderful event.
