What current schools date from the Middle Ages?

The following is a list of currently active schools dating from the Middle Ages. There were a lot of schools that opened during the Middle Ages that later closed, especially in areas where a lot of wars were fought. England, with perhaps the greatest numbers of schools from the Middle Ages, is also a country less prone to invasion that some others. The following list does not include Universities, and probably leaves out a lot of schools (for example, none is listed from Italy, which seems absurd). The date used for the end of the Middle Ages is 1500, which, while arguably perhaps 50 years late, at least excludes non from the list some might want included.
