A new primary for a new community


  • Part of Somerset County Council’s £140 Million investment programme
  • Located in a growing community
  • Modern and sympathetic design

Part of Somerset County Council’s biggest school building and investment programme for generations, Nerrols Farm Primary School will be a 420-place primary and 26-place nursery. Located in an expanding residential area in Taunton, the two-form entry primary will become a central part of the community.

Designed to sit comfortably in its surroundings, the two-story building will consist mainly of brickwork at ground level, with modern colour render above. It will also feature a generous canopy over the main entrance, to give prominence to the entrance area and also a shelter for nursery and reception pupils.

The 420 pupils will be spread amongst 14 modern classrooms and will benefit from a 3G sports pitch, main hall, hard and soft informal play areas and a habitat area. The nursery is self-contained with its own entrance.

Neal Stephens, managing director of Willmott Dixon in Wales and The West said:

"We are delighted to be working together with Somerset County Council as part of their ambitious school building and investment programme.
We know that this school will be an important part of this growing community, and we look forward to bringing the vision for the school to life, whilst also maximising local employment and training opportunities for the surrounding community."
