"In Church Street stands King Edward's Grammar School, where the
boy Shakespeare was educated; the school buildings adjoin the
Chapel of the Holy Cross. The Grammar School was founded in 1482
by Thomas Jolliffee (sic), a Stratford man, and refounded by the
King in 1553. The Almshouses here were founded by Edward VI for
twenty-four poor men and women."

and academy in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. Although traditionally for boys
only, since September 2013 the school has admitted girls into the Sixth Form. It is
almost certain that William Shakespeare attended this school, leading to the school
describing itself as "Shakespeare's School".
