Richard Huish Trust

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

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 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.

After The Taunton Academy, West Buckland Primary School and North Curry Church of England Primary School all successfully joined the Richard Huish Trust, Huish worked collaboratively with Somerset County Council to build Nerrols Primary School. The Richard Huish Trust continues to grow – for more information about our schools and colleges visit
