Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Comprehensive School for 11-17 year olds in Camberwell

The replacement school block runs alongside Camberwell New Road, the street that forms the school’s principal address. Faced in brick and dominated by a tower supporting a clock, the street facade is articulated by a series of zip-like vertical recesses.

Classrooms are ranged along the longer of the building’s two wings with the other comprising a full-height dining hall and drama room.

To the rear of the site there is a new sports hall: a standard brick shed elevated by decorative timber detailing at its upper level.
