 You are bidding for a copy of The City and the School commemorating the 500th anniversary of the endowment of the Grammar School of Kingston upon Hull


Published over twenty years ago this book gives a fascinating insight into the history of this long established place of learning.  To quote from the Foreword by Lord Halifax, the Lord Lieutenant of Humberside. 

'There are few places in Britain which have a school with as long a tradition as Hull Grammar School.  For five hundred years - probably longer - the School has been identified with the City.  The records show that, during those centuries, boys from all parts of society have been educated there, and then, as men, have gone on to fuill important places in industry and the professions, not only in Hull but in many parts of the world.

Beginning with a short account of the history of Hull and a look at the buildings in Hull that survive today and link with the School's past and with its famous scholars the book also includes, amongst other, chapters on the school curriculum  from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century, the records of the school held in the City archives and a look at some of its 'old boys'.  It gives a wonderful insight into the 'goings on' at this great school over the past five centuries.

The book would prove to be a worthy addition to the collection of anyone who has had connections with the school or with an interest in local and family history in the area.

This copy is in very good condition and can be collected to save postage if required by the successful bidder.

Please note that although the photo shown is of the title listed for sale it may or may not be of this specific copy and therefore attention should be paid to the description for guidance on the condition of the copy offered for sale.
