Always foreseen that the Schoolmaster and Usher teach the Grammar approved by the Queen's Majesty that now is, and that the Schoolmaster first allowed by the Ordinary, and by examination be found meet both for his learning and his dexterity in teaching, as also for his honest conversation, and for right understanding of God's true religion now set forth by public authority, whereunto he shall stir and move his scholars, and also shall prescribe to them such sentences of Holy Scripture as shall be most expedient to induce them to godliness.

The New Scheme
By the order of the Lord High Chancellor, dated the 18th of July, 1825, it was directed, that the aforesaid Report as to the scheme for the future establishment of the Free Grammar School at Tunbridge should be varied in certain articles of the same scheme, and that the scheme for the establishment of such Free Grammar School should be, and consist of the several articles thereinafter mentioned, reserving at all times to the Skinners' Company, they taking the advice of All Souls' College, in the University of Oxford, the power to make such regulations respecting the said Free Grammar School, as, having relation to the plan thereby directed to be carried into execution, are not inconsistent with the said plan; and also such regulations as, having no relation to the said plan, the said Company had authority to make, prior to the institution of the said suit, the same being made with the advice of the said College, where it was requisite for the Company to act with such advice, and without it, where such advice was not necessary; as in the said order is mentioned.
The following SCHEME, which incorporates, with some variations, the Statutes of the Founder, and retains much of their language, was finally settled, under the above order of the Court of Chancery, for the future establishment of the School.
I. That the Master of the said School be whole of body, well reported, Master of Arts in degree, if it may be, chosen by the Company of Skinners of London, to whose direction the Founder committed the governance of his said School and order, always foreseen that the School-master and Usher teach the Grammar approved by the King or Queen's Majesty, and that the School-master be first allowed by the Ordinary, and by examination found meet, both for his learning and dexterity in teaching, as also for his honest conversation, and for right understanding of God's true religion, set forth by public authority, whereunto he shall stir and move his scholars, and also shall prescribe to them such sentences of Holy Scripture, as shall be most expedient to induce them to godliness.

1826HistoryTonbridge Grammar SchoolThe History of Tonbridge School
In 1826, in consequence of the increased funds at the disposal of the Governours for School purposes, and the representations of Dr. Knox as to the want of room for the boys, the Lower School was built. The trees and the wall in front of the School were removed, and iron railings substituted. In 1827, the library, built in 1750 by Mr. Cawthorne and the Skinners' Company, was enlarged to its present size, and made to correspond externally with the other newly built wing. The old dining-hall, built in 1676, was at the same time pulled down, and a new one added, with dormitories over it.

1858 to 1859HistoryTonbridge Grammar SchoolThe History of Tonbridge School
In 1858 the increasing want of accommodation caused the erection of the three wooden class-rooms at the side of the playground, which, though small and inconvenient, were all that the funds of the School would allow of the Governours erecting. In fact, in answer to Dr. Welldon's pressing appeal for more room, the Skinners' Company were compelled to answer that through want of funds it was hopeless for them to consider at present the subject of further enlargements. However, the consent of the Governours was obtained the same year by the Doctor to the object he had had at heart for many years—the erection of a School Chapel, for which the Governours gave a site in the School grounds. The only condition attached to the permission was that the School estate should be at no expense in the matter. The funds were provided through the personal exertions of Dr. Welldon, aided by the interest the Old Boys took in the School; and on May 23rd, 1859, the Bishop of Ripon laid the foundation-stone ...... On October 25th the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Sumner, formally opened it, in the presence of the Visitor, the Warden of All Souls' College, Oxford, the Master and Wardens of the Skinners' Company, and a considerable number of vistors connected one way or the other with the interests of the School.

1862 to 1866HistoryTonbridge Grammar SchoolThe History of Tonbridge School
In 1862 Dr. Welldon, in answer to the Governours' inquiry as to the best disposition of the money realized by the sale of School property to the Midland Railway Company, recommended the erection of a new School-building, and the purchase of the ground of five houses on the south side of the School as likely to be property valuable at a future period ; three of which houses, together with their sites, were bought by the School in 1866, as well as a strip of land behind the School-house.
The foundation stone of the new buildings was laid on May 9th, 1863, though the actual works had been commenced two months previously. The Master of the Skinners' Company, Mr. George Legg, presided on the occasion, and a considerable number of the Governours attended him.
