A school is recorded in the Register of Burials for Calverley as early as 1630. It has been rebuilt several times, once in 1749 by Mason John Gott, father of Benjamin Gott of Armley. The school in this image was erected in 1878 at a cost of £1,600 and a further £300 was spent when it was enlarged in 1892. For many years it was known as the 'Brown Memorial School' in commemoration of the ministry of the Rev. Alfred Brown. The building stands to the north of St.Wilfrids Church.

Calverley Parish Church and School viewed from playground, watercolour by Fred Swaine (Calverley)
Colour imageUndated. This watercolour by Fred Swaine (1858 - 1942) depicts the Church of England School. A group of children are visible in the playground. The origins of the school date back to the 16th century and Sir Walter Calverley was a pupil from 1675. The school has had several locations in the vicinity, but when the artist, Fred Swaine, attended as a boy in 1860s it was in an earlier building dating from 1840. As a young man of twenty, Fred Swaine attended the opening ceremony of the school in the image, which was held on Whit Monday, 10th June 1878. His father was the choir master. The ceremony was followed by a church service. The new school was dedicated to the memory of the vicar, Mr. Alfred Brown who had died suddenly 18 months before. He had worked hard on the two schemes to restore the church and build the new school. Copyright Fred Swaine.
