As part of Sir Thomas' Foundation Deed of Midsummer 1693, the School moved from the Elizabethan Town Hall to its present site during the reign of King William and Queen Mary. We read 'Sir Thomas Cookes of Bentley, in the County of Worcester, Baronet, hath built at Bromsgrove a large and convenient School-house, with a very good Dwelling-house for a School-master'. Incised on a corner stone at the north-west angle of this building is the date '1695'.
