The Yarrow Building was opened in 1918 on the first Speech Day after the war ended. It was funded by Mr AF Yarrow, later Sir Alfred, in memory of his son, Eric, who was killed on 8th May 1915 at Ypres.

Originally, the building was designed to serve as a museum for both the arts and sciences. Headmaster, FW Sanderson said: ‘The object of the Museum is to make it possible to extend the work already begun in the Art Room.’ However, as a scientist, he also wanted the methods of research and experiment to be extended to all areas of the curriculum, and thus the museum housed a collection of pictures, specimens and models to illustrate ‘the history, development and beauty of the various branches of knowledge’.

In 1970 the building was adapted to create a permanent exhibition space, and the tradition of staging exhibitions of professional artists began.

During recent major restoration work, the building’s interior was stripped to reveal the original oak panels. The display area was redesigned on the ground floor and the gallery upstairs was opened up to provide further exhibition space. It is now one of the most attractive galleries in East Anglia. At present there are five or six major exhibitions a year, including the highly popular A level show each June.
