Taunton School

Founded in 1847, Taunton School is one of the South West’s leading co-educational independent day and boarding schools for children aged 0–18 years.

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

Situated on a 56-acre campus in the heart of Somerset, transition to the Senior School from the Prep is automatic - you do not have the worry of having to look for yet another school for your child. A non-selective school with high expectations, we offer BTEC, IGCSE, A Level and IB courses. With 300+ co-curricular options and state-of-the-art facilities, students are supported and encouraged to explore their talents and passions.

Taunton consists of an experienced Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School, inspiring Preparatory School, an innovative Senior School and a specialist International School. Taunton School aspires to offer a complete journey of education to all children and young adults, unearthing and nurturing the talent within every individual. 


Taunton School believes that education should be thought of as a structure with five pillars – Academic, Pastoral, Co-curricular, Community and Global Outlook – and we challenge our students and staff to aim for excellence in each of these areas. As a non-selective school, Taunton School has achieved consistently excellent GCSE results and some of the most exceptional A-level and International Baccalaureate results in South West England. Taunton School is easily accessible by road and rail. Specific day visits and boarding experiences can be arranged to suit parental convenience.




Forces’ students are strongly represented in many aspects of Taunton School life, including sports (we have military students playing at county level and above), CCF, drama and many more. Military students have also recently gained significant scholarships into both the Prep and Senior Schools.
