The Castle School

Taunton, Somerset

Futures for Somerset are currently working with The Castle School to deliver a Kitchen Refurbishment and Dining Extension to improve and increase their existing provision.  The new dining hall will provide a more formal dining experience and new kitchen equipment will continue to provide healthy meal options for their students. 


The project follows a successful Condition Improvement Fund bid to the Education Funding Agency by Futures for Somerset on behalf of the college. Futures for Somerset have been appointed to provide Bid Writing, Feasibility, Project Management and Employer’s Agent services into the project. The project is being developed with Inspired Partnership (Architect), Aspen (Kitchen Layout) and Portsdown (Furniture). Planning was submitted in April 2019 and currently waiting on the outcome.

Early works have already started, with the move of high voltage underground cables by Western Power.

The new facility is due to be open by September 2020.
