Lightcliffe Preparatory School merged with Hipperholme Grammar School in 2003, under the Hipperholme Grammar Schools Foundation, and was subsequently renamed as Hipperholme Grammar Junior School.
The school has it origins in 1529 within the chantry chapel of the nearby village of Coley. In 1648 (the date the school classes as its founding year) Matthew Broadley, paymaster to Charles I, endowed a large sum of money to build a school on land donated by Samuel Sunderland of Coley Hall; the school opened its doors on its current site in 1661. Two of the current school houses, Broadley and Sunderland, are named after the founders.
In 1783 a new school hall was constructed, designed by Longbottom. Originally an all-boys school, it became independent (ISA, AGBIS) in the 1980s and began admitting girls at the same time.
