Details / Notes

  • Built in 1577 after The Corporation of London granted Edward Underne permission to acquire funds for the construction work from church collections within the City of London. The date of the foundation of the School (1573) can be seen over the door of the building. The schoolhouse incorporated a dwelling for the Master, dormitories in the roof space, and turrets with staircases at either end. It was built opposite St John the Baptist Church on Wood Street. It is now a Grade II listed building. Its Blue Plaque reads: This Tudor Hall housed the free grammar school of Queen Elizabeth I who granted its charter in 1573
