Headmaster Dr John Newton said: We have long needed an extra playing surface and I know this will be high quality as well as being attractive to look at.

Building of extension and internal alterations to form new science labs at Taunton School International, Taunton Somerset

Taunton School science labThe building of new extension to match into existing building to form 2 new science labs and a store.

This was a domestic brick/block construction with a tiled trussed roof.

The School was open throughout most of these works for largely foreign students so close liaison with the school staff was essential

Principal Adrian Hallworth said: “We have seen interest in science grow considerably over recent years, particularly, I believe, as a result of the growing popularity of the IB Diploma.

“Having these labs has meant we are able to increase our science provision by 25%, which is fantastic news.”

Taunton School International was established in 1996 by Taunton School to provide a vital first step for British and international students wishing to complete their education in a British Independent school.
