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 the corner of Gaol Square and North Walls in 1813 (pictured). The school finally moved to new premises on Newport Road in 1862.

In 1919 the education Committee took over the school and in 1928 built a new hall and wing facing Friars Terrace.

In the mid 1970s, the Grammar School merged with Stafford Girls' High School to become King Edward VI High School, a comprehensive school.
