Work has started on the creation of a ‘Green Heart’ as part of a plan to provide an outdoor
haven in the centre of Taunton School.
The £360k plan will see the current asphalt roads and paths between the Pre-Prep, Prep and
Senior schools transformed into an eco-friendly pedestrianised area for students to relax and
enjoy their green surroundings.
It will include trees, plants, seating and sensory areas to promote student wellbeing and
provide a place to relax and socialise.
Terry Harris, Head of Estates at Taunton School, said: “We’re excited to be starting work on
the Green Heart phase of Taunton School’s development plan.
“It will give students space in which to take a breather and relax in pleasant surroundings
right in the heart of our beautiful 19th century campus.”
The Green Heart project is part of a multi-million pound campus development plan for the
school, which also includes new sports facilities and a new £15 million international school.
The school has already opened a new Sixth Form Centre this term which will be followed by a
redesign of the Prep School playground.
