Description:The postcard shows the exterior of the school on Newport Road, with two boys standing outside the school wall and railings.

The Free Grammar School of King Edward VI was established in 1550 using St. Bertelin's Chapel as a schoolroom. Due to the poor state of repair of the schoolroom, the school was rebuilt on Gaol Square, North Walls, in 1813. The school moved again to new premises (pictured) on Newport Road in 1862. Then in 1919 the Education Committee took over the school and a new hall and wing were built facing Friars Terrace. In 1975 the King Edward's merged with Stafford Girl's High School to become a comprehensive.
