Taunton School

Situated on a 56-acre campus in the heart of Somerset, transition between the Prep School and Senior School is automatic, creating a seamless educational journey.

A proudly non-selective school with an inspiring learning environment, we offer three GCSE pathways and four Sixth Form pathways; BTEC, A-Level, IB and an International Foundation Programme. With over 150 co-curricular options and an ongoing £20 million campus development plan, Taunton ensures it meets the needs of every student, unearthing their potential through a wealth of opportunities.

Students from military backgrounds are represented in every aspect of Taunton School life, whether on the sports pitches, the stage or in the CCF.

Pastoral care is at the heart of Taunton School, we are one inclusive family made up of day pupils and a large community of full-time boarders who relish their weekends filled with trips and activities.

Taunton School celebrates diversity, giving each student the freedom to be themselves whilst developing connections that transcend the classroom.

"We challenge, inspire and nurture young people to succeed in a global community."
