The Great War History Project

Wakefield Grammar School Foundation and the Great War

In 2015, we were thrilled to announce a project to commemorate the First World War with the aid of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).  

Over the course of two years we undertook a series of activities aimed at sharing prestigious school archives from the period with members of the Wakefield Community.

A series of five lectures were delivered over the course of 2015/2016, discussing the role of The Foundation during The Great War. and during February 2017 a free exhibition depicting the project was installed in Wakefield Cathedral.
