The Wheatsheaf represents 'Productivity' as Buckinghamshire was famous for agriculture. Many of the AGS students, right into the 20th century, needed to have time off to gather the harvest.
The Beehive is 'Industry' as bees are industrious and protective and Buckinghamshire is famous for its honey.
The Swan represents "Royalty" or "Monarchy" which has evolved over time into 'Loyalty'. Created as the royal standard, Sir Henry Lee was Queen Elizabeth I's champion and therefore allowed us to use the swan with the crown around its neck to show that it is tethered to the monarchy.
The Carnation represents 'Integrity', a symbol of peace, purity of spirit and good intent showing that the School community embodies kindness, consideration and respect.
The Tudor Rose represents 'Unity' showing that whatever our background we are all united by our affiliation to the School.
