The present Grammar
School in Tamworth was built in 1867, however there was a Grammar school long before this
date. It is recorded as far back as 1384. Queen Elizabeth I refounded the school in the
second charter that she granted to the town in 1588, the school was to be known as the
Free Grammar School of Elizabeth Queen of England in Tamworth. The illustrations here from
the 1911 sports day are more recent by comparison.
