The School Badge


The school badge has its origins in the beehive crest of the old Bedwellty Urban District Council.


The three hexagons are derived from the cells of the honeycomb.

  • The bee signifies industry.
  • The lower left symbol is the Yin-Yang of ancient Chinese philosophy and represents the interplay of contrasting yet complementary forces, physical and spiritual, which sustain the universe.
  • The lower right symbol is a hieroglyph standing for tree and is a reference to the place name, Blackwood.
