Richard Huish Education Group

Richard Huish Education Group is an independent charitable organisation established by Richard Huish College, an academy sponsor approved by the Department for Education, to support local schools.  West Buckland was the first primary school to join the Education Group, followed by North Curry Church of England Primary School, North Town Academy and Nerrols Primary School. Taunton Academy was the first secondary school of the Education Group.

Huish aims to nurture the individuality of its member schools, identifying the areas of strength and distinctive features of the local community in order to promote sustainable improvement.
