Welcome to the Hawkshead Grammar School website  
The museum in the Old Grammar School building in the village of Hawkshead, Cumbria, houses a unique collection of historic artifacts relating to the ancient School, some of which date back to the sixteenth century. All visitors are given a warm welcome and a short talk on the school. They can then examine the schoolroom and the upstairs displays at their leisure.
Tour or group organisers may obtain further details from the curator,
Terry McGarr, 015394-36674 or hgsfcurator@gmail.com
The museum is operated by the Hawkshead Grammar School Foundation, whose main purpose is to provide grants to young people to assist their further education, vocational training, or entry into work. They must come from the Ancient Parish of Hawkshead to be eligible.

The governors welcome any approach for funding according to the above criteria and Grant Application Rules which they may set from time to time via the clerk,
Joanne Heather, who is contactable at hgsfclerk@gmail.com or 015394-44717

Donations including will bequests are encouraged, especially from previous beneficiaries who will appreciate the extent to which a small grant can help a young person at a formative stage.
