Can anyone recognise this London school if I describe the uniform / crest / logo please?

I would be very grateful if anyone does and can let me know. It's probably near SW or Central London, boys or co-ed. Has a senior school, I don't know about juniors.

Uniform is blue shirt, dark trousers (helpful). The main bit of details is that logo or crest is a sword pictured upside down, with some sort of yellow ribbon at the bottom that looks roughly like a W shape. I would recognise the logo if I saw it again!

An upturned sword is associated with St Paul - does that help at all?

sounds like Whitgift

I hope they've been behaving themselves ....

Thanks - but not St Paul's have checked that one. In fact, I think it might be Whitgift. I will see if anyone on here can verify! They don't have a sword but the W shape seems right.

x-posted! The crest does look right - do they have blue shirts with the crest on the pocket basildonbond?

basildonbond Fri 21-Jun-13 19:31:17

yes the lower school has blue shirts with crest (so years 7-8)

basildonbond Fri 21-Jun-13 19:32:11

it's not a sword - it's an archbishop's hat (I'm sure there's a proper word for that but can't think of it at the moment ..)

that will be it then. thank you.

Whitgift is in Croydon, SE London.

So... what have they been up to?

tiggytape Sat 22-Jun-13 12:28:47

It might be a good reason - well you never know!
I once looked up a really distinctive uniform after seeing a group of their Year 11's studying together in a coffee shop. They were all very polite, studious and considerate. Unfortunately it wasn't a flash new academy that had opened up but an eye wateringly expensive independent.

Why didn't you just ask one of the kids what school they go to? Anything you say/do now is just conjecture#just saying

burberryqueen Sat 22-Jun-13 15:05:28

Archbishop Tenisons?

burberryqueen Sat 22-Jun-13 15:07:45

no sorry forget that

BuiltForComfort Sat 22-Jun-13 19:46:16

eh? Sorry didn't realise there was a load of speculation going on! I was on a bus, overheard two boys chatting, thought they seemed nice polite switched on kids and thought I'd be interested enough to put their school on my radar for when the time comes to think about it for ds. Should have asked them but got distracted by ds and they got off before I could go over. Shame people have to assume it must have been something bad, they seemed like lovely kids.

basildonbond Sat 22-Jun-13 21:31:26

that's good to hear - it's just that my ds is at Whitgift and although I'm always being told by his friends' parents that he's lovely and polite it's sometimes hard to believe they've got the right child wink

DS's mate's father is a psycotherapist, specialising in troubled families and so I assume he knows a thing or two about good and bad communications. He said about 2 years ago he was on a train and some schoolchildren got on and sat near him and he said they had they they most lovely interaction (it was 13/14 year old boys). He said they were funny, lively, respectful and courteous. He asked them what school they went to and phoned the head and told her how impressed he was. smile

I'm not usually the paranoid type, but I'm sorry to say that my first reaction upon reading the question was that it seemed a bit stalkerish, potentially.

I could also immediately think of many innocent reasons why a person might want this information. Nevertheless, if I did have any info which might help a person establish which school has this particular uniform, I would be reluctant to share it with an unknown person on the internet.

I hope that doesn't come across as nasty, OP.

FatalFlowerGarden Sun 23-Jun-13 12:47:31

Saracen, really?? That's paranoid even by MN standards!

Glad to hear it was something nice, OP. Ds starts there in Sept!
