Arms: Murrey within an Orle of eight Crosses crosslet Argent a Lion rampant Or holding in the forepaws a Book bound Azure the spine and the edges of the pages Gold.

These arms were granted to the Lewes Old Grammar School Trust for the use of the School on 25 October 2012, precisely five hundred years after the date of probate of the will of Agnes Morley whose bequest to the free grammar school at Southover-next-Lewes is the earliest mention of that body which later became Lewes Grammar School.

By decision of the College of Arms all proceeds arising from the sale of The Armorial of Haiti will be donated to the international effort for the relief of Haiti
after the calamitous earthquake of 12 January 2010.
