North Town Academy, consisting of North Town Primary School and North Town Nursery is situated near the centre of Taunton and was built in 1907. Its age and situation makes it a very attractive building and our visitors regularly comment on the spacious light airy feel.

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 will work hard to ensure our children have a clear sense of moral purpose through which they see and understand the world around them. They will willingly take responsibility for providing an academic creative social and sporting lead for their peers in school and outside.
