£1m investment for Holy Trinity Primary

Work has started on a £1million building project at Holy Trinity C of E Primary School in Taunton this week.

Somerset County Council is investing in four modern classrooms which will provide space for an extra 120 pupils at the school.




A turf-cutting ceremony was attended by Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Schools and Achievement, Cllr Frances Nicholson, the Headteacher of Holy Trinity C of E Primary School, Nigel Bright, Somerset County Council, representatives from Hookways architects and building contractor, Harris Brothers and Collard.

Cllr Frances Nicholson said “I am delighted that Somerset County Council is able to invest in Holy Trinity Primary School.  It is a very exciting project and I look forward to seeing its completion as soon as possible.”

The project will also include the remodelling of an existing school building to accommodate a Nursery.

Headteacher of Holy Trinity C of E Primary School, Nigel Bright said: “This is an exciting time for Holy Trinity School. It will enable more children in our community to benefit from the high quality learning opportunities that are available at the school. I am pleased that we could work closely with the Local Authority on the increased provision of school places.”

Work is due to be completed in late 2014.
