The King’s School, Grantham, was founded by Richard Foxe, Bishop of Winchester, in the sixteenth century (1528) and formerly attended by, among others, a young Isaac Newton back in the 1650s. In my time at the school, it was a traditional boys-only grammar school with a long history of old-fashioned discipline and classical teaching techniques rooted in the English public-school system. There were about 500 boys at the school, mostly “day bugs” as we boarders called them, but with a small contingent of boarders with numbers fluctuating between 30 to 40.
These are my memories and photographs of my time at the school.
