Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 21, 1965.

The arms show the arms of the Burgh of Dunfermline covered on the sinister side with the arms of Queen Anne (those of the Danish Royal House) in the upper quarter and a book to symbolise education below. The name of the school is taken from its original home in a room of the gatehouse of Queen Anne's House, which was the residence of Anne of Denmark, wife of James VI, when staying in Dunfermline.
