Caption for Calne, Bentley Grammar School C1965

Through the 1662 legacy of John Bentley, a free school was founded on The Green. A new grammar school was built on the site at Wessington in 1957, the first in the county of Wiltshire, with 360 places for boys and girls.

Further developments in the late 1990s, when the school became a single-site, have transformed this view.
