Sky College, Taunton, Somerset
Alterations, extensions and new-build sports barn and teaching block

Sky College is Somerset’s only provision for complex behaviour, emotional and social difficulties (BESD). Lilac Sky Schools are in partnership with Somerset County Council to transform the school and improve the facilities and the central aims of the construction project are therefore to increase opportunities for quality education, tackle disaffection, improve concentration and raise attainment. Enhancements to the buildings and the grounds will help to achieve this. The new facilities will lead to more flexibility and choice in approaches to learning, in line with the personalised learning agenda. Enhanced provision for students with complex BESD will mean that their needs can be better met and more positive outcomes for children can be achieved. MRA is appointed as architect and lead consultant working with project manager South West One, and construction is currently under way.
