The Endowed Grammar School, on West green, was originally connected with a guild in the parish church, called " the Society of Brethren of the Name of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin & St. Nicholas of Pocklington," the seal of which, together with an ancient silver cocking bell, belonging to the school, is still reserved:
the. guild was founded by John Dolman LL.D. archdeacon of Suffolk (one of a family who were for centuries lords of the manor of Pocklington), in the 6th year of Henry VIII. (24th May, 1514); & when subsequently, in the reign of that monarch, all such guilds were suppressed, the property originally left to the guild was preserved by the exertions of the founder's family for the benefit of the school: the Master & Fellows of St. John's College, Cambridge, under the arrangement then made, appointed the master of the school, who, in turn with the church wardens, appointed the usher; & the master & usher together formed a corporation, called the " Corporation of Master & Usher of the Free Grammar School of Pocklington." Attached to or connected with the school are the following scholarships & exhibitions:—1, Four Dowman exhibitions each of £40 yearly & tenable for 3 years at St. John's College, Cambridge; 2, the Bishop Crewe exhibition of £40 yearly, tenable for two years at Oxford University & open to boys from the Grammar schools of Daventry & Pocklington; 3, the Worsley augmentation fund, founded by Miss Worsley, of Clifton, for the augmentation of open scholarships obtained by boys on leaving & transferred hither from Daventry school; 4, the Ackroyd exhibition of £50 for 3 years at either Oxford or Cambridge, may be competed for by boys from this school; 5, the Ann Watson exhibitions of .£25 each yearly & tenable for 2 years at any university, are similarly open; 6, three County Council scholarships of £60 yearly each, tenaible lot 2 years, by natives of or residents in the East Riding, at the Yorkshire College, Leeds, Firth College, Sheffield, Owen's College. Manchester, the Royal College of Science, South Kensington, or any other college 'or university approved by the County Council; 7, exhibitions established by the governors at any place of higher education, or of scientific or professional training.
The following are tenable only at the school:—1, Eight local exhibitions for day boys, each of the yearly value of £7 10s. ; 2, foundation scholarships for boarders, of ,£20 each yearly, awarded by examination; 3, ten house scholarships, five senior & five junior, of £20 each yearly; 4, Worsley augmentation fund, founded & transferred as libove, for increasing scholarships tenable at the school; 5, a limited number of entrance scholarships of £20 each & of exhibitions of £15
The   revenues of the school arise mainly from land situated in various parts of. the East Riding, & amount to about £1,000 a year. The Rev. T. Shields B.I); who became head master in 1807, succeeded in considerably augmenting the income of the school, & in 1818 commenced the rebuilding of the school & master's house, eventually completed in 1848 by the Rev. F. J. Gruggen M.A. : in 1875 the Endowed Schools Commissioners completely re-organized the management of the schools & transferred the patronage from St. John's College to a governing board of 12 members. Under the management of the late master, the Rev. Charles Gilrnour Wiikinson M.A. of Pembroke College, Cambridge, the school considerably increased in numbers. During 1890-91 a gymnasium, chemical laboratory, infirmary & other buildings have been erected, & there are now (1896) about 140 boys; head master, Rev. Charles Frederick Hutton M.A. of St. John’s College, Cambridge; .John Lambert Brown, D. T. Picton Davies, Robert Johnson M.A. T. Kirby B.A. C. B. McKee B.A. Edward Caldecot Marsh B.A. Percy M.
