A former bank in Highbridge has been transformed into a new training centre.

Sense IT Training & Consultancy has taken over the old NatWest Bank site in Huntspill Road, opposite the former Highbridge Hotel site.

Director Bruce Reed told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We have recently taken over the site – the offices have been completely renovated and now act as the new home of Sense IT Training & Consultancy.”

“We have received many comments from the local community about how glad they are that we have kept the site as a commercial site and saved it from ruin whilst helping to improve the image of the Highbridge area.”

The IT training company and IT Exam testing company sees many people come to Highbridge and sit exams from as far afield as Wiltshire, Dorset, Cornwall and Bristol. The firm delivers traning and exams on technologies from Amazon AWS, Google, Microsoft, CIMA and others.

NatWest closed its Highbridge branch in 2014, as we reported here at the time.
