Honor Virtutis Praemium
This is a common motto meaning honour is the reward of virtue. It appears to have been adopted by many organisations, including one with a very local Blackpool connection.

Arnold School Motto
Honor Virtutis Praemium happen to be the motto of Arnold School Blackpool. This excellent local school is situated a few hundred metres away from our office on the opposite side of Lytham Road.
