About Our Crest

The symbols in our crest are a compass, book and quill, a tree and united hands.

The Compass commemorates Sir Francis Beaufort on whose birthplace our school is now built. He was a famous navigator with the Royal Navy and creator of the Beaufort Wind Scale.

The Book and quill are the traditional symbols of learning and knowledge. They represent the many tools of learning that we strive to provide for our pupils so that they may continue to learn and develop through their lives.

The Tree represents the importance of nature and the environment in our lives and education. It also symbolises our students and how they grow and develop in maturity and character through education.

The United Hands represent our supportive, close-knit school community that believes in empowering and supporting our pupils towards their full potential.
