Catmose College is an oversubscribed secondary academy school; rated as an ‘outstanding school’ in all categories in their Ofsted report in 2012.  Students are primarily drawn from Oakham and surrounding villages, although many are attracted from a wider area including Leicestershire and Melton. The school offer a broad range of experiences beyond the classroom to build core skills that are critical for success in adult life.

The school’s primary aim is to encourage maturity, independence and individuality; providing the necessary skills and knowledge to be of value to themselves and society. Student talent is fully realised by instilling high expectations, emphasising the importance of hard work and doing one’s best in every circumstance aided by the committed staff whose contributions make the College truly exceptional.

Streetspace Urban Structures were delighted to win the tender to create much needed increased dining space from under-utilised paved outdoor space behind an existing building.

By offering total project delivery, the delays and miscommunication commonly associated from dealing with multiple professional bodies and structural glazing contractors, were avoided and a stunning design was realised on time and considerably cheaper than a traditional build. The fantastic glazed structure fulfilled its practical function while the modern design created a superb bright, light and ambient space; optimising the dining experience for students and staff alike.

Streetspace Urban Structures turnkey solution provided a superior dining space for Catmose College that echoed the schools’ core values of independence, resilience and leadership. By investing in our architectural design expertise we were able to construct an exceptional bespoke build; comparable to a modular build but superior in every way.
