Or, on a chevron between in chief two talbots passant and in base a bell azure, a portcullis of the field.

Origin/meaning

The Hall was founded in 1878 and named after Henry VII's mother. The arms show talbots passant (for Bishop Talbot one of the founders) and in base a bell azure (from the arms of Wordsworth, Dame Elizabeth Wordsworth being the first Principal) and a portcullis of the field (for Lady Margaret Beaufort).
