Our Schools

Richard Huish is a group of educational organisations that spans early years, primary, secondary and further education committed to delivering exceptional education for all.

Richard Huish Trust initially supported Pyrland School (previously known as The Taunton Academy) secondary school since then however, the Trust has grown to include a further five local primary schools. The primary schools include both traditional village provision and larger town centre-based schools with all the primary schools providing a nursery/pre-school offer. We work closely with the Diocese of Bath and Wells who in turn support the two church schools within Richard Huish.

With Richard Huish College re-designating as a 16-19 academy and formally joining Richard Huish Trust in 2021 the overall student number has increased to circa 5000.

The organisations work closely together in order to provide a wide range of opportunities to ensure that all students maximise their potential and develop aspirations beyond their expectations. All our organisations are guided by a set of core values that clearly set out the expectations for all members of our community including our Church Schools.

The ambition is for all the organisations within Richard Huish to retain their individual autonomy to best serve their local communities whilst also benefitting from the collective advantages of working closely with other like-minded partners.

Please visit our school websites for more information about the day to day education and experiences we offer.

We are committed to providing a wide range of opportunities to ensure all our students make the most of their learning and participate fully in school and community life. Our ethos is to emphasise respect for oneself and others.

Our vision is to create a stimulating and enriching environment where children are encouraged to learn, to develop as a whole and to understand their value and place in the world.

To provide a broad, balanced, challenging and exciting curriculum, which allows all children to reach their full potential in a happy, stimulating, inclusive and safe environment.

We believe that children reach their potential when they are happy and secure at school. When they are stimulated, challenged, supported and encouraged to do their best, they love learning.

We aim to produce citizens of the world. We want our children to be confident, able people, who possess a sense of personal duty to the community in which they live. We believe that our children should be free to develop their talents and become leaders, both in school and the wider world.

We constantly work hard to ensure that every child enjoys their time at our school, and that they strive to become the best they can be in all areas of the curriculum.
