About us

West Somerset is one of twelves areas in England chosen as an Opportunity Area, and forms a part of the government’s efforts to unlock the true potential of England’s young people.

From a child’s early education to their post-16 learning, outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people in West Somerset are well below the national average.

Through working in partnership with local organisations, businesses, schools, nurseries and colleges, we will aim to overcome these challenges – providing every individual with the chance to go as far as their talents and hard work will take them.
