MP Jeremy Browne praises new-look Taunton Academy
1:00pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Mr Browne supported the academy from the beginning and recently toured the new buildings to see how the facilities have improved for students.
He Browne said: “I was a strong supporter of the Taunton Academy from day one.
“I know it was controversial with some residents, but I felt it was the right option to give a massive new boost to secondary-level education for north Taunton children.
“Over £10million has been invested in the Taunton Academy and the results are spectacular.
“The new buildings have transformed the facilities for the students – the whole site is completely different from the old Ladymead School and it’s creating an ideal learning environment for the students.
“I want to see every young person in Taunton Deane reach his or her full potential.”
The academy was set up after the closure of Ladymead and The St Augustine of Canterbury Schools.
