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.
