Old Grammar School (Huntingdon)

The Old Grammar School is a historic building in Huntingdon.

As a Grammar School it had as one of its pupils in the 17th century Oliver Cromwell, who was born in the town, and also Samuel Pepys, whose parents lived nearby at Brampton.

The building incorporates the West end of the old Hospital of St. John the Baptist, which was founded by David I of Scotland in about 1160.

It was converted into the Grammar School in 1565.

The Old Grammar School now functions as a museum devoted to Cromwell.
