Tudor Hall housed the Free Grammar School of Queen Elizabeth I, who granted its charter in 1573.

The original Tudor building, known as Tudor Hall, was erected in 1577 opposite the Church of St John The Baptist on Wood Street in Barnet, with money raised by the first governors of the school and by collections in London churches.

It was repaired in 1597 and again in 1637. During the 17th century, further extensive repairs were carried out, in spite of a poorfinancial situation following the Civil War.

The trustees of Elizabeth Allen’s Charity, which had been established by her will dated 10 February 1725, gave financial assistance to save it from a state “very ruinous and unfit for habitation”.

Over the next few centuries, the hall has undergone various restoration projects. This includes in 1874 and 1968.
