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.

Work has started on Taunton’s Green Heart

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.
