Origin/meaning

The arms were not granted on July 19, 1957.

Brentwood School was founded by Sir Antony Browne and his wife, Joan, who obtained a Royal Charter licencing them to found the School on July 5th, 1558. The arms show the arms of Sir Anthony and his wife. This combination was already used for a long time by the school, before the arms were officially granted in 1957.
