Welcome to Malton School, A Specialist Science School

Stronger for being one

Archbishop Holgate

Malton School was founded by Robert Holgate, Archbishop of York, in 1547. 

There is an Archbishop Holgate Society, founded in 1947, and from this we have a number of items in our archive.  Mr Taylor (Headmaster 1951-1971) appears to have been a member of the society, and we have some menus from the annual dinner, and various other documents in our archive.  The menus usually had a photograph on the front, and some interesting information on the back.  These will be made available on this site.  David Houseman contributed a very informative and interesting article on the society in 2003.

We also have items such as Holgate's will and a photograph of his portrait, which hangs in Archbishop Holgate Hospital in Hemsworth.

All our artefacts and information will appear here eventually.
