King's College Taunton

King’s Hall School and King’s College, Taunton are co-educational boarding schools situated in the south west of England, that combine traditional values with state-of-the-art facilities.

"Thriving Boarding Schools in the heart of the Somerset countryside."

Both schools are part of the respected Woodard Corporation and are situated in Taunton. Exeter and Bristol airports are less than an hour away, and London Heathrow little more than two hours’ travel. The schools’ strong boarding ethos is central. We have a good number of children from service backgrounds, who understand the pressures of being part of a military family, and actively care and support each other. The fact that so many pupils and staff live on the site creates a strong sense of community, while the other great benefit is the extra time boarding offers: time for relaxation, friendship and practising the many activities available – music, sport, Forest School, horse riding at our Equestrian Centre, Combined Cadet Force, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and performing arts.

The schools are small enough to be friendly and yet large enough to compete nationally. A good work ethic and small class sizes help sustain progress, and specialist teaching is the norm, with great emphasis placed on developing the individual: kindness, consideration, courtesy and respect for one another.
