The new logo for a secondary school in Wembley which will become an academy next month has been revealed.
Students and staff at Copland Community School in Cecil Avenue, worked together to create the emblem for ARK Elvin Academy.
Students, who named the academy after Sir Arthur Elvin who helped build the original Wembley Stadium and organised the staging of stage the 1948 Olympic Games, wanted the logo to reflect this local heritage, be inspirational and demonstrate pride within its walls.
Gareth Rutter, the designer who worked with students on the new logo, said: “The torch represents the Olympic history of Arthur Elvin and the lion within the flame references the strength and pride that students have in their school.
“Having the students intrinsically involved in developing the new logo is really important, because they are the ones who will wear it every day.
