The School was formally founded in 1629 by Samuel Harsnett, the Archbishop of York, opening with 16 ‘poor scholars’. The school grew steadily, and in 1873, a bursary programme for girls to attend other schools was introduced. The sixth-form section then became co-educational and girls were first admitted in 1974. This led to the rest of the school becoming co-ed in 1997.
