Somerset Progressive School was registered in 2001 as a day special school to provide education for boys and girls who have behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. The school caters for pupils aged 9 to 19. In April 2017 Keys Group PCE, a national organisation which owns a number of health, social care and education settings, took over ownership of the school. The school is located in an extended farmhouse with adjoining buildings and cabins set in four acres of land near Taunton in Somerset. The school uses Wellington Sports Centre, Blackbrook Sports centre and Taunton Vale Sports Centre for physical and practical Inspection report: Somerset Progressive School, 12–14 September 2017 Page 8 of 11 activities. Fees are paid by a number of local authorities for pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. There are currently 19 pupils on roll, a high proportion of whom are children looked after. A new headteacher took up post in September 2017. The school aims to ‘help children towards a better future by supporting pupils in the change and growth that will lead to success and progress’. The previous standard inspection of the school was in July 2014. There are currently no pupils in the sixth form.
