The arms were granted on July 25, 1960.

The Crest derives from the badge devised by Dr Crowther, founder of the original School, and by his Art master. When the school was incor­porated after Dr Crowther's death in 1918, it was re-established on lands that had been granted to the Church of England by Henry Dendy and J. B. Were.

The escallops and the cross-crosslet are charges from Arms of families of Dendy and Were respectively.
