      How did Mercian Educational Trust derive it's name?


      The name ‘Mercian’ derives from when our region was settled by Angles from what is now Northern Germany/Denmark circa AD584.Map of England 515-918
      Our emblem, a red circular shield banded in gold is conceived from a Mercian shield discovered by archaeologists. The white Wyvern central symbol was Mercian, and denoted a family/tribe. A Wyvern is a “winged, two-legged dragon”. The white Wyvern re-appears as heraldry for a Bologna family during the Renaissance. Bologna founded the world’s first university, and was a centre for reasoning, independent and open-minded thinking.
