Developing a stunning new building on a new site for St Mary’s school

  • Project: St Mary’s RC School, Derby
  • Client: The Governors
  • Value: £2.4m

Lathams has designed a new school for St Mary’s, on a brand new site around half a mile away from their existing one.

The attractive, long, low building is perfectly located among existing trees, with all changes of level accommodated by ramps and planting units. We added a generous amount of landscaping to soften the outline of the building and prevent vandalism.

The interior includes the central IT and library areas and provides areas for informal teaching, with atrium study areas on the junior side, which can be used for teaching or quiet study.

The football pitch at the front of the school is lined with mature trees. We retained stone walls around the boundaries of the school and created a new gateway for easy access.
