"The King's School at Canterbury was founded by King Henry the Eighth, who, by the Charter of Foundation, which he granted in the Thirty-third year of his reign, 1542, to The Dean and Chapter of The Cathedral Church of Christ, constituted the School a part of it, to consist of a Master, Usher, and Fifty Scholars, who were to eat at the Common Table, but which the provision made by His Majesty for that purpose could not, however, long maintain."

"Brookland - Rev. Mr. John Leahunt. May 13th, died, Rev. Mr. John Lehunt, master of the king's school, at Canterbury, and vicar of Brookland, in Kent, by a fall from his horse."


Kings School Scholars c?

The King's Scholars are elected, according to merit, at the November Chapter by The Dean and Chapter and the Head Master, out of those boys who have been some time at the School, to supply such vacancies as may happen in the ensuing year, and must be between the ages of nine and fifteen; an exception, however, to this is made in favour of Choristers from The Chapel Royal and Canterbury Cathedral. They may remain at the School, four years, or, with the approbation of The Dean and Chapter, and Head Master, five years, but no longer. After election they are admitted by The Dean.

The School is liberally open for Children "from any part of the Kingdom."

The present School-house seems to be what was once the old Chapel of St. Thomas the Martyr, and the Head Master's House, what was the lodgings of the Chantry Priests.

The Eton Grammars are used; and the Eton plan of Education is pursued.

The Benefactions in favour of the Scholars of this School are numerous:

In 1625, William Heyman, of Canterbury, Gentleman, by Indenture, vested 27 acres of Marsh land in the Parish of Warehorne, in the County of Kent, in certain Feoffees, to apply five parts out of six of the rents of those premises upon Two poor Scholars only, to be placed in The King's School at Canterbury, to be nominated by his next heir and the majority of the Feoffee; such Scholars to be descended from the body of his Grand-father, Peter Heyman, Esq., or to be natives, or born of such as are natives of Sellinge. The Scholar so to be chosen, to be full eight years old; who should hold his Exhibition for nine years, and if he should go to any College in Cambridge, to be continued for seven years from his leaving School; and if he should take Orders in the first five years of the seven, the same to be continued to him for three more years more, that is ten in the whole, at the University."

"Perhaps one of the oldest schools of which anything is known is the school of Canterbury. Theodore, who was consecrated archbishop of Canterbury in 668 (according to some authorities), founded a school or village by licence from the pope. This school certainly existed for a long time; and there is a record of a suit before the archbishop of Canterbury in 1321, between the rector of the grammar-schools of the city* (supposed to be Theodore's school or its representative) and the rector of St. Martin's**, who kept a school in right of the church. The object of the suit was to limit the rector of St. Martin's in the number of his scholars. This school probably existed till the Reformation, at least this is the time when the present King's school of Canterbury was established by Henry VIII., and probably on the ruins of the old school. Before the Reformation schools were also connected with chantries, and it was the duty of the priest to teach the children grammar and singing. There are still various indications of this connection between schools and religious foundations, in the fact that some schools are still or were till lately kept in the church, or in a building which was part of it." Penny Encyclopedia of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge 1841

*Ranulph, rector of the grammar schools of the city

**Robert, rector of St. Martins (the school of St. Martin's was kept by "the Parson of St. Martin's, as Somner says "in right of the church and by concurrent custome." Ranulph opposed this right**

The Quarterly Journal of Education 1835

....The school yet continues according to the terms of Henry's appointment. The upper master has a salary of 100l. with a house capable of accommodating a large number of boarders. The under master has a smaller salary, with a sufficient house. Both are graduates of the English Universities, and clergymen. The former is elected by the dean and chapter, and the latter is nominated by the upper master. The scholars are elected by the dean and chapter, with a stipend of 1l. 8s. 4d. and hold their scholarships five years, their education being cost free. There are likewise two scholarships for relations of the family of Hayman, of which we shall speak in our account of the exhibitions belonging to the school. The instruction is classical and mathematical. Many eminent individuals have been educated here, of whom it will be enough to name Dr. William Harvey, the discoverer of the circulation of the blood; Lord Chancellor Thurlow, Lord Chief Justice Tenterden, and Dr. Herbert Marsh, now Bishop of Peterborough. It was formerly for a long time resorted to for education by the sons of the gentlemen of the county; and, from the character into which it is at present rising, it may be presumed that it will at no distant date be their chief place of education again. "Of the masters," says Hasted, the historian of Kent, 'who have presided over this school, many of them have been men of eminence, as clergymen and scholars; one of them I can mention of my own knowledge, and whoever knew him will join in this tribute of justice to his memory, I mean the Rev. Dr. Osmond Beauvoir, late head master of it, first educated here, and afterwards at St. John's College, Cambridge; whose great abilities brought this school to the highest degree of estimation; who united the gentleman with the scholar; one whose eminent qualifications and courtesy of manners gained him the esteem and praise of all who knew him, many of whom are still living to attest it, and regret the loss of him. He died in 1789.

King's School Canterbury - a postcard from my collection


The King's School situated in the Mint Yard, may justly claim to be the oldest of our English Public Schools. It is certain that Archbishop Theodore, in the 7th century, founded a school within the City of Canterbury wherein he placed professors of all the liberal sciences, and there is no doubt that Canterbury was the great centre of learning at least 200 years before King Alfred is said to have founded the school at Oxford. The present school, refounded by Henry VIII. in 1541 for 50 King's scholars, formed an integral portion of the Cathedral foundation. It was re-organized in 1879 by the Charity Commissioners. 1899


The Norman Staircase, the old monastic almonry (1860's), a photograph in my collection


"The King's School, situated in the Mint yard and approached by the celebrated Norman staircase, claims to be the oldest public school in England, having been in existence in the days of S.S. Ethelbert and Augustine, but was refounded in 1541 by Henry VIII. for 2 masters and 50 king's scholars, forming an integral portion of the cathedral foundation. Among the eminent men whom it has produced are Christopher Marlowe, the dramatist; Richard Boyle, "the great Earl of Cork"; William Harvey M.D. the discoverer of the circulation of the blood; Archbishop Winchelsey, of Canterbury; Accepted Frewen, Archbishop of York (1660-64); Wm. Somner, the antiquary & historian of Canterbury, auditor of the cathedral; the Rev. William Gostling M.A. minor canon; Archdeacon Denne, Sir Samual Brydges bart. M.P. Samuel Pegge, antiquary; Bishops Boyle of Cork (1660-63), Gunning of Ely (1675-84).....etc.

The Norman staircase - a photograph from my collection


A history of the school was published in 1865 by the late Rev. J.S. Sidebotham M.A. (d. 1901). The school was re-organised by the Charity Commissioners in 1879, & has a yearly endowment of £1000. The 50 king's scholars are divided in 25 probationers (£10 for two years), 15 junior (£15 15s. for 5 years) & 10 senior scholars (£25 for 3 or 4 years); there are also 2 Heyman Scholarships of £20 each, founded in 1625, tenable for 4 years at any school, but limited to the kin of P. Heyman, or in default to natives of Sellinge, Kent; 4 exhibitions of £50 a year, tenable for 4 years at Oxford or Cambridge; 2 exhibitions of £50 a year, founded by Archbishop Parker in 1569, tenable with a foundation scholarship at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, the Bunce exhibition of £50 a year, tenable for four years at Oxford or Cambridge......etc.


A classroom of the King's school from an old postcard in my collection (The Big School)


There is a junior department for boys 7 to 13, erected in 1881, at a cost of £3000, granted by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners in consideration of £1000 being raised by subscription and expended on the then existing portion; they also granted to the school portions of the old archiepiscopal palace and grounds; this addition provides room for 60 to 70 additional boys & 32 boarders; a gymnasium and three new fives-courts have also been added. Close to the school is a cricket ground and lawn tennis courts, and in addition to these there is a large cricket and football field; the school also maintains a boat club, bicycle club and natural history and musical societies, a museum and a good library and reading room.

At Dr. Birt's resignation in November of 1832, Mr. Wallace had been lower master for about eighteen months.


Of the King's School

I find myself accused (too justly I fear) of saying, in my former edition, less of this school than one who was educated at it, and a King's Scholar, ought to have done.

I must endeavour to make amends by the best account I can give of this ancient and royal foundation.

The latter of these titles I can trace no farther than King Henry VIII. who new modeled the establishment of our cathedral; and by whose statutes, as corrected, explained, and confirmed by King Charles I. both that, and its school are regulated.

As to the former, Canterbury perhaps need not give place to any nursery of learning in the whole kingdom.

Archbishop Theodore (according to Lambert in his Preambulation of Kent) by licence of Pope Vitalianus, who died anno domini 669, founded within this city a school or college, wherein he placed Professors of all the liberal sciences. If so, here was, in effect, what we call an University more than 200 years before King Alfred founded that at Oxford, anno domini 886.

How eminently Canterbury was the seat of literature many hundred years ago, appears by the history of the noble Aldhelm, who came hither from the court of Ina, king of the West Saxons, (whose nephew he was), to study under Adrian, abbot of St. Augustine's and who was no less distinguished by his learning than by his rank; being, as he himself boasts, the first who introduced the study of Latin poetry into his country. See Dr. Gale's Scriptoria XV. Vo. I. page 342. He died bishop of Shirborn, anno domini 709, as Bede tells us, page 244 of that volume.

That Augustine settled a school here very early can hardly be doubted. Mr. Somner has given an account of a suit in 1321 between Radulph rector of the grammar schools of the city of Canterbury, and Robert rector of St. Martin's near Canterbury, and of the schools there; when sentence was given in favour of Radulph, reserving to Robert the right he claimed as immemorial of teaching at St. Martin's, but restraining the number of his scholars to thirteen; which may be best accounted for, by supposing this the number of those instructed at St. Augustine's school there, and thus fixed in respect to his memory......

King Henry VIII. founded this school for a master, usher, and fifty scholars; who were to eat at the common table, which the provision made by him for it could not long maintain. The fifty scholars are elected only at the November chapter, as many as may supply the vacancies of the ensuing year: they must be between the ages of nine and fifteen; they receive each a stipend of 1l 8s 4d a year; and hold their scholarships for five years. Besides this there are two scholarships for relations of the family of Heyman; of which, and some scholarships in the University of Cambridge, to which the scholars from this school have a title, a larger account will be given in the next chapter.......

A complete list of the honourable and illustrious families who have sent their sons to this nursery, or of others, less distinguished by birth and fortune, whose own parts and industry have raised them from hence to high posts in church and state, would be a valuable ornament to a larger and more pompous work than I should venture to undertake; but it would be unpardonable to omit mentioning one of those heroes in learning, of whom any school and nation might very justly be proud. I mean the famous Dr. William Harvey, whose important discovery of the circulation of the blood in animals, has given new light to the study of medicine, as well as that of more sublime philosophy which teaches us to admire and adore the wisdom of God in the creation.

Dear Sir,

In thanking you for your obliging letter and its accompanying little book, allow me to assure you that I never was at the King's School, Canterbury, and that if there be any resemblance between David Copperfield's Doctor Streong and the Doctor Birt whom you mention, it must be purely accidental, inasmuch as I never before heard of the existence of the last named gentleman.

Faithfully yours, Charles Dickens
