New Logo

As part of our ongoing process of development and to establish a more focused spotlight on our students’ achievements, you will begin to notice changes to our branding. Our new badge is displayed above. We are very proud of Central Foundation’s history and traditions and want to ensure that the strengths of our values, aligned with our vision for the future, are reflected in our school badge. Our school motto, which continues to underpin the ethos of our school – by Hope, by Work, by Faith – has been translated from the Latin.

We have updated our logo to reflect our school vision, whilst retaining Central Foundation’s history and traditional values:

  • The large Ermine Cross on a scarlet ground which divides the shield into four parts is from the Coat of Arms of the University of Cambridge.
  • The Golden Lion in the first quarter is from the Royal Coat of Arms.
  • The second quarter, containing the Open Book with the inscription ‘Dominus Illuminatio Mea’ (God is my light), is from the Coat of Arms of the University of Oxford.
  • The third quarter contains a ‘Rose en Soleil’, familiarly known as the Tudor Rose, surrounded by rays, and is from the Arms of the University of London.
  • The Flaming Torch in the last quarter is the symbol of learning, whilst the Red Sword, in the centre of the Ermine Cross of Cambridge, is from the Coat of Arms of the City of London.
  • The Coat of Arms was designed by Sir Albert Woods,  when Garter King of Arms, and was presented to the school by Lord Lingen.

    Loving the fresh logo design, simple but powerful. I’m not the best at logo design so I am compiling logos that work well. Yours is certainly on the list!
