We ran a competition for pupils from across the Schools to design a logo for the 2020 celebrations; Year 10 MTBS pupil Oliver Bigley was chosen as the winner by the Heads and the 2020 planning committee. They were particularly impressed by Oliver’s attention to detail, as he has included elements of the Merchant Taylors’ company logo as well as a book to indicate the academic nature and achievements of the School, and the lamb looking forwards to the future.
