New One Way Traffic System at Taunton School


I write to inform you of some changes that will be taking place over the coming months at Taunton School.

Over the summer the School have taken some advice on the management of traffic on campus.  As a result, the School have developed a plan to introduce a one-way system to the front of the Main Building.  This will involve a modest investment to upgrade the road and also some railings to separate foot from vehicle traffic.  We are confident that this new road system will help the flow of traffic and will ensure the safety of our pupils as they move around the site.

The benefits are clear:

  • No large vehicle (lorry, coach or mini-bus) will ever have to reverse when dropping off or picking up pupils.
  • All vehicles driving around the front of school will proceed in a clockwise direction which reduces congestion.
  • Traffic should flow faster at peak times.



How will it work?

  • On entering the campus through the main gate the two-way system will operate as normal until the corner of the dining room.  From here, the one way system will go clockwise past the Science Block (39), the New Pavillion (32) and the Grounds department (19), before rejoining the main access road.
  • Coaches will pull over to the left of the road by the Old Gym (33) and the passengers will disembark directly into a safe walkway which is physically separated from the road by some railings.
  • For Visitors, Members and Hirers entering the campus through the main gate, the two-way system will operate as normal until the corner of the dining room (13). From here you can continue in front of the Main Building across the front of the main campuse (1), turn left going past the parade ground (36) and continue through to park next to the Durrant Astro Turf (42) or at the back of the School (16). Cars are not permitted to park along the main drive way at anytime as access is required 24/7.

When will it happen? 

This is now live.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask all Hirers to inform all of their clients and session attendees of the changes to the road system to ensure the new system can be implemented successfully.

Please download the following TDS notice regarding the club's stance on changing room etiquette and swimmer safety. This notice comes into effect immediately and can be downloaded here.

All swimmers and parents should keep an eye on all club communications (website, email, Facebook / Twitter) in case there are any last-minute cancellations. It is very important that you check there is a coach poolside, at the time of the session, before leaving your swimmers. If you are unsure you should consult your squad rep. Many thanks for your attention in this matter.
