The grammar school at Hampton Lucy was founded and endowed by the Rev. Richard Hill, curate of Hampton Lucy, in the 11th year of the reign of Charles I of England. In 1867, the school had two departments; the upper department had some boarding school students who were each charged 8 pounds, 8 shillings per year.
