The Stationers' Company's School was a former boys' grammar school, then comprehensive in Hornsey.

History[edit]

It started as the Stationers' Company's Foundation School. In 1861 it was established at Bolt Court near Fleet Street. In 1891 it moved to Mayfield Road in Hornsey, north-east from Crouch End.

Grammar school[edit]

The speech night was sometimes held at the Stationer's Hall. The analogous girls' was Hornsey High School, which became Hornsey Secondary School for Girls. It was a voluntary aided school, becoming voluntary controlled in 1966.[1] In 1933 the school was extended and a new assembly hall, gymnasium, dining hall and workshops were accommodated in a new brick extension on Mayfield Road.

Comprehensive[edit]

Stationers' Company's Grammar School became a comprehensive boys' school in 1967, merging first with Priory Vale School in Hornsey and then with William Forster School in Tottenham before closing in 1983. The building was demolished and the grounds turned into Stationers' Park.
