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 preserved: 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 S 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:—i, Four Dowman exhibitions each of £40 yearly & tenable for 4 vears at St. John's College, Cambridge ; 2. the Ackroyd exhibition of £50 for 3 years at either Oxford or Cambridge, may be competed for by boys from this school; 3, the Ann Watson exhibitions of £25 each yearly & tenable for 4 years at any university, are similarly open; 4, three County Council scholarships of  £60 yearly each, tenable for 2 years, by natives of or residents in the East Riding, at the Leeds University, Leeds, Firth College, Sheffield, Owens College, Man­chester, the Royal College of Science, South Kensing­ton, or any other college or university approved by the County Council; 5, exhibitions established by the governors at any place of higher education, or of scientific oir professional training
The following are tenable only at the school:—i, 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, a limited number of entrance scholar­ships at £,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 £800 a year. The Rev. T. Shields B.D. 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 t'he schools & transferred the patronage from St. John's College to a governing body of 12 members, since increased to 14; T.

During 1890-91, a gymnasium, chemical laboratory, infirmary & other buildings were erected, & in 1898 the school was further enlarged by the addition of a new wing, at the cost of about £6,000 ; there are now (1909) two boarding houses, & about 55 boys; head master, Rev.
