La Mare de Carteret High School & Primary School Receives Planning Consent

9 November 2016

Design Engine Architects’ plans for the replacement of the existing La Mare de Carteret High School and Primary School in Guernsey’s Castel parish have received planning consent.

Having successfully delivered the award-winning Les Beaucamps High School in 2013, Design Engine fought off strong local and international competition to win the new commission from the States of Guernsey Education Department (now the Committee for Education Sport & Culture).

The new development on the La Mare de Carteret site will provide a total gross building area of 13,478 m² including replacement High School facilities for either 600 or 960 11-16 age pupils, replacement two-form entry Primary School facilities for up to 420 pupils aged 4-11 and community facilities for families and the wider community within the schools and sports buildings.
