The New Mills Secondary School was constructed in 1912 and designed by the architect George Henry Widdows. It is identical to Ilkeston School in that it has a large square quadrangular plan with a domed central hall linked by covered walks to the four sides. It is constructed of random rubble gritstone with ashlar dressings, green slate roofs, some leaded lights, and mostly original timber windows. The central domed hall is of reinforced concrete with stained glass windows. (1)
