An exciting new chapter for the Foundation and historical hospital site

The Governors of Wakefield Grammar School Foundation are delighted to announce that agreement (subject to planning) has been made with the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust for the purchase of the former Clayton Hospital site.

Both parties can now look forward to the site being regenerated for the benefit of future users.

Located between our schools, the purchase of the former Clayton Hospital site will mark a very significant strategic development in the prestigious 424 year history of the Foundation.

Given the size of the site and complexity of the project, development will naturally be phased over the coming years.

Until planning negotiations are completed during 2016, the exact scope of the development remains fluid. However, new state-of-the art facilities to benefit music and sports provision across the Foundation are proposed, to be enjoyed by future generations of pupils and the Wakefield community.

It is our intention to provide updates as the development progresses.
