History[edit]

The school motto is Cor Unum Via Una which translates as "One heart, one way," and is also the title of the school song. The school was first established in 1566 with the donation of £50 from an Alford merchant. In 1576 a charter was granted by Queen Elizabeth I "for the Education, Instruction and bringing up of children and Youth for ever to continue."[citation needed] In 1959, a new block was added to the school in preparation for the admittance of girls. The school attained grant-maintained status in 1989, and in 1999 was given Foundation status.[citation needed]
