Taunton School is a non-selective co-educational boarding and day school for pupils aged 0-18 years, based on one spacious 56-acre campus. We are honoured to be entrusted with moulding children’s lives and care passionately about realising each child’s potential. The best education that you can get, sets you up for life.

I firmly believe that every child has the right to an outstanding education. Our aim at Taunton School is to challenge, nurture and inspire our students. From Nursery, through Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior School, to our international students, we are one school, one journey, sharing the same vision for our children. Education, in my view, focuses on five pillars: Academic, Pastoral, Co-curricular, Community and Global Outlook. When these five foundations for learning are delivered well, individuals succeed and flourish.

  • Taunton School guides your child through Nursery, Pre-Prep, Prep, Senior and Sixth Form education, offering an extensive range of subjects across all tiers, with a choice at Sixth Form of A Levels, IB Diploma, or BTEC Diplomas. With outstanding academic results, 56 acres of privately-owned land, and excellent facilities, Taunton School is a well-established name among the top independent schools in the country.
  • We challenge, inspire and nurture your children while preparing them for an ever-changing world in the 21st
  • We aim to provide something for everyone so that students are empowered to make the right choices for themselves. Whether it be academic choices at GCSE or decisions in everyday life, students become driven to discover that which truly defines them. That could be getting stuck in with one of our sports programme, playing in our orchestra, performing in a theatre production, dancing solo, or working in a team on the Science Technology Engineering and Maths projects (STEM).
  • Taunton School is located in the heart of Somerset, and has an ever-growing transport network with a fleet of coaches and minibuses to transport day pupils to and from school.
