Boys of the Grammar School

The table below gives the names and details of the boys who started at Guisborough Grammar School between 1885 and 1913.

The students are listed alphabetically by surname. The very youngest would have been a part of the preparatory class, educated alongside young girls. The older boys, from around age 8, would have been in the grammar school proper.

If you are researching your family's history and would like more information about any of the students listed here, or if you would like to know about someone more recent, please get in touch. You can email us on ppc.museum@pursglove.ac.uk .

This table was put together from information collated by archive volunteer Sam Adams. Sam has been working to compile a database of Guisborough Grammar School alumni, using the school's ledgers and registers. She began in January 2012, and has put together thousands of entries.

In some cases, where highlighted, you can click on the name to read more about the individual.
