The School Crest
The school crest commemorates the role of Admiral Sir Eliab Harvey, descendant of the school's principal founder Eliab Harvey (the nephew of William Harvey) at the battle of Trafalgar. The History of The Harvey Grammar School by Rev J Howard Brown, BSc (a pupil at the school from 1894 to 1902), includes this account:
Admiral Harvey had been commissioned, in 1803, to the Temeraire, a giant three-decker of 98 guns, the "Fighting Temeraire" of Turner's famous picture. As the Victory was attacking the French ship Redoutable, the two ships exchanging furious broadsides before grappling, the Temeraire came to the rescue and launched herself against the starboard side of Redoutable, which was thus caught between two fires. The losses were heavy on both sides, and the three ships were firmly fixed in their own wreckage when the disabled Fougueux drifted across the bows of Temeraire: it was from the rigging of this ship that the shot was fired which cost Nelson his life. Ultimately both French ships surrendered, but in the storms which followed Redoutable sank and Fougueux was driven ashore and broke up. Both ships were of 74 guns.
