School of the Week

We were thrilled to be named ‘school of the week’ in the County Gazette, under the headline ‘inspiring great futures’. When the reporter, Amy Cole, visited us she was very impressed with our facilities and commented on how enthusiastic our teachers were. She also noticed how polite, happy and engaged our pupils were. In her report she said: “Taunton Academy has been battling a reputation for years. But recently stories told between parents on the playground have been about progress, positivity and great results. Despite its ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating, leaders have been recognised in the school’s latest inspections for taking ‘effective action’ towards improving the school.” It is wonderful to have our achievements recognised by the wider community and that word is getting out about the amazing results we are getting.
