St Michael's Catholic Secondary School is an independent co-educational day school that opened in 2012.
St Michael's is the only Catholic secondary school in Cornwall and will continue the provision of an excellent Catholic education to pupils from across mid and west Cornwall, where every pupil is able to flourish; both academically and personally.
White Design worked with BAM Construction to design a new facility on the site of the Old County Grammar School in Camborne. Keeping the original Grammar School building ensured the school is able to unite the best of the traditional with the best of modern educational design.
The deliberate location of the new building to the rear of the site allows for the existing building’s positive impact on the conservation area to be preserved. The Old Grammar School was constructed in 1908 and is very much a part of the local fabric, so the decision to keep the new building away from it is seen as planning “good manners”.
