Hawkshead Grammar School - Museum


Hawkshead Grammar School was founded in 1585 by the then Archbishop of York, Edwin Sandys (originally of Esthwaite Hall, near Hawkshead). The current building dates from 1675, when the School was rebuilt by Daniel Rawlinson. At that time there were around 100 pupils, who came from all over the North of England. The school had several famous former pupils, including the poet William Wordsworth.[1] Today the school is a museum, still known as Hawkshead Grammar School. The old school is a Grade II* listed building.
