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 & 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 4 years 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 or professional training The following: are tenable only at the school:—1, Ten local exhibitions for day boys, each of the yearly value of£1o ; 2, entrance scholarships for boarders, of £20 to £50 each yearly, awarded by examination; 3, a limited number of entrance exhibitions of £10 to £15.
The revenues of the school arose mainly from land situated in various parts of the East Riding, & amounted to about £800 a year; the land has since been sold & the proceeds invested. 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 the schools & transferred the patronage from St. John’s College to a gererning body of 12 members. Alderman J. Oliver, 17 Market street, clerk to the

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 a cost of about £6,000; in 1921 a swimming bath was added & in 1923 Dolman house was bought as an additional boarding house; there are now (1925) three boarding houses,-& about 180 boys ; head master, Percy Cooper Sands M.A. late fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge', and master, Cyril Stanley Kipping M.A.Camb.
