Leeds Grammar School has played a prominent part in the educational life of Leeds since 1552 when it was founded by William Sheafield to provide free, subsidised or fee-paying education to the children of the City of Leeds. Despite 1552 being the traditional date for the foundation of the school, there is some evidence to suggest that the school existed as early as 1341. 

John Davies, former Head Master of the Junior Schoo, is the school's historian and archivist and will visit FORUM 2000 to present a history of the School and the part its prominent pupils have played.
