Well it would seem the tour bus is slowly picking up, with us seeing 5 others here at the same time, not to mention the many other names scrawled upon the blackboards.
Good derp if not a bit repetitive when going from room to room but it's better than a kick in the teeth. Here's some history and some photos:

LGHS was founded in 1876, at a time when female education was limited but expanding. Frances Lupton and other members of the Ladies’ Honorary Council of the Yorkshire Board of Education decided that campaigning for access to the universities was of little use without better all-round education for girls, equivalent to what boys received at traditional academic grammar school.

In 2005 LGHS merged with Leeds Grammar School to form the Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL). The merged school administration took over LGHS in August 2005, however the schools did not physically merge until September 2008.

The school building was used as a filming location for the fictional St Matthews' Hospital in the new ITV medical drama Monroe.
