    Second site of the day with dhl, God and bobblehead. dhl had told us this was good and he wasn't wrong!

    St Michael's Catholic College was founded in 1905 by two Jesuit priests, but it was not until 1908 that it moved into the St John's road site. The building was designed by architect Benedict Williamson, himself to become a catholic priest, and also known for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Fullham.

    There was a 1960's extension built which included science labs, a gym and the main hall. A further extension in the 1990's brought a dance and drama studio at the same time as the school began accepting girls for the first time.

    The school officially closed on it's centenary in 2005 although the buildings were used for a further three years by the Mount St Mary's school which had taken the former St Michael's pupils. As each year moved up they didn't replace them, effectively phasing out the use of the building.

    The school has a statue of St Michael over the main entrance and had the motto "Quis ue Deus" meaning Who is God

    Externally there has been a huge effort to secure the site, with almost every ground floor entrance bricked up. Once you're inside you realise that almost every window is screwed shut, even on the top floors.
    Because of this though, internally it's in good condition with lots of things to see and play with. Apparently there has been some damage since the start of the year, but it's still a very nice explore.
