"These buildings, comprising the Guildhall and Grammar School, were erected by the guild of the holy cross in the 15th century and have been in continuous use since then. The property was confiscated by King Edward VI who later restored the school to the town.
It is generally believed that Shakespeare was educated in this school. The old school room is part of the present day Grammar School.
The buildings are closed to the public. Organised parties may be admitted, during the easter and summer months only, on written application to the headmaster."
