Plaque: Highgate School - Cholmeley House


Hunc lapidem posuit Rogerus Gaskell Hetherington
Scholae Cholmeleianae et alumnus et gubernator
Ea spe ut discipuli iuniores suas ipsi aedes
fama et honore in posterum augeant atque ornent

{We think the Latin text tells us that Roger Gaskell Hetherington, who was an old boy of Highgate School and a school governor, laid the foundation stone on 17 Nov. 1937 in the hope that young pupils in the future will contribute to this house and increase its reputation.}

On the wall high above the plaque is the school shield. The scroll below the shield reads : schola Rogeri-Cholmeley Mil Highgate.
