Shield parted per pale of Vert and Argent; at dexter two keys Or in saltire, surmounted by a triple towered castle Argent masoned Sable, at sinister a cross Gules surmounted by a mitre Or between four martlets Sable, the whole within a bordure Or.

Meaning:
The dexter half displays the arms of the Oxford Church of St. Peter-le-Bailey, now being the college chapel. The sinister half displays the arms of the founder of the college’s predecessor St. Peter’s Hall, Francis James Chavasse, Bishop of Liverpool, who died in 1928, before the school was established in 1929. It attained full college status in 1961. One of the founders twin sons, Bishop Christopher Chavasse, became the 1st Master. His brother Noel Chavasse had been Oxford’s greatest military hero, who is the only one, having gained the Victoria Cross twice in WWI.
