Usk Grammar School was founded in 1621 and was one of the historic endowed schools of England and Wales. Its 19th century buildings are listed. I don't know when it closed or if it was amalgamated with another school.
Roger Edwards endowed the Roger Edwards Educational Trust, which is still in operation, and it appears that Roger Edwards was a significant figure in 17th century Monmouthshire.

I am confident that Usk Grammar School merits an article. If we can establish that it was renamed or merged into a current school then it could be a redirect to a section in the article on that school. It is less clear that there is material to establish sufficient notability for an article on Roger Edwards. He is not in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography. If we get an article on the school then there could be a redirect to a section on him there, or to a new article on the Roger Edwards Educational Trust.
- I'm sorry if that seems a bit over-the-top, I was confusing this article with Usk, where the redlinks remain. Verbcatcher (talk) 17:33, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
- User:Martinevans123 is incredibly sorry and apologises profusely for such wanton misdemeanours and pleads not to be taken to AN/I and be blocked indefinitely for such errant vandalism. He will probably have to pay a suitable self-imposed penance by helping to create or improve one or more of these articles. Martinevans123 (talk) 17:45, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
