The Friary High School
The Friary School (formerly Lichfield Friary School) is a community secondary school located in Lichfield, Staffordshire, England. The school serves about 1,300 students aged 11–18. The school became an arts and sports college in 2006.
Due to the reorganisation of secondary education in the period 1970-73, the former girls' school was closed and succeeded by the present school on a new site on the north side of the town. The former site, at the corner of Bore Street and St John Street, became an adult education centre with Staffordshire County Council.
