Old Grammar School, Vicar Lane (City Centre)
Black & White imageUndated. It is thought that the origins of a Grammar School in Leeds could date back as early as 1341. By 1552 the Grammar School had become well established with premises in The Calls. The old grammar school building in this view was erected in 1624. It was planned and funded by John Harrison, the well-known Leeds benefactor. He also provided the site, north of the Headrow. It was a piece of land which he personally owned, a field located between Vicar Lane and New Briggate. In 1691 Leeds Mayor, Godfrey Lawson, gifted a library which was the very first school library in Leeds. By the 1850s, new buildings were proposed and in 1859 the school relocated to Woodhouse Moor at the instigation of the headmaster, Doctor Alfred Barry. His brother, architect, Edward Middleton Barry, designed the new buildings which opened on the 27th June 1859. The 17th century buildings, pictured here, were sold, for the purchase price of £4,200, to Mr. Samuel Denison and the revenue was used to help fund the new school. Mr. Denison converted the buildings for use as a foundry. He is listed in the Porter's Leeds & Neighbourhood Directory for 1872 as Samuel Denison & Son, Ironfounders & Weighing Machine Makers, Old Grammar School Foundry, 25 & 27 North Street, residence, 29 North Street. The seventeenth century buildings were demolished around 1900. Photograph of a sketch, by Wormald of Leeds.
