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 Pockling ton." 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 3 years, by natives of or residents in the East Riding, at any college or university approved by the County Council The following are tenable only at the school:—1, Ten local exhibitions for day boys, each of the yearly value of£10; 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 _£1,ooo 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 governing body of 12 members. Alderman F. Smith J.P. chairman; Arthur J. Oliver, Regent street, clerk to the gover­nors. 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; in 1927 a new Assembly hall was built : there are now (1928) three boarding houses, & about 18o boys; head master, Percy Cooper Sands M..V. late fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge
