Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on June 18, 1966.

The principle feature of the arms is a representation of the River Dee running from east to west as it does through the city, passing the site of the school. Around this are arranged a variety of charges which include books to refer to education and holly leaves to represent the Irvines of Cults, a local landowning family in previous centuries.
