About Loughborough High School
Loughborough High School is a selective, independent school for girls in Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. It is one of three private schools known collectively as the Loughborough Endowed Schools, along with Loughborough Grammar School for boys and Fairfield Preparatory School. All three of the Endowed Schools are autonomous, and yet they share the same vision and educational ethos, supported by a united board of governors. Founded in 1850, it is believed to be one of the country’s oldest grammar schools for girls.
The Loughborough Endowed Schools were founded after Thomas Burton, a prosperous wool merchant from Loughborough, willed money for priests to pray for his soul upon his death in 1495; these priests went on to found the boys school that would become Loughborough Grammar School. It was not until 1850 when the boys school moved to a new site to the south of Loughborough town centre and it became more socially acceptable to educate women that the foundation was extended to girls and hence LHS was founded.
The school celebrated its bicentenary in 2000, when it was visited by HRH The Princess Royal.
