Taunton School is one of South West England’s leading co-educational independent day and boarding schools, set in a beautiful 52-acre site, the school nurtures the individual in a friendly and broad-minded atmosphere, equipping our young people with the life skills to enable them to shape the world in the 21st century. 

The school is a lively, international community where they aim to challenge, nurture and inspire young people to succeed in a global community.  



Taunton consists of a Preparatory School and an innovative Senior and International School, which all share the same spacious campus, as well as Taunton School International Middle School which is located in The Grange, a beautiful, traditional manor house close to Taunton School. 


They offer the IB Diploma, alongside A-levels and Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Business and in Sport & Exercise Science as well as a Pre-foundation and a Foundation year.  As a completely non-selective school, it has achieved consistently excellent GCSE, A-level and IB results.  



Taunton aspires to offer a complete journey of education and growth to all children and young adults, unearthing and nurturing the talent within every individual. The school believes that education should be thought of as a structure with five pillars – Academic, Pastoral, Co-curricular, Community and Global Outlook – and they challenge staff to aim for excellence in each of these areas. 



The school offers a supportive boarding environment for children.  At the Preparatory School level (aged 7–13), boarding life is very much an extension of family life, with small dormitories for girls and boys and excellently equipped common rooms and recreational areas. In the Senior School boarding environment, the pupils have access to abundant cultural and sporting activities. With close friends at hand, they have the opportunity to develop life skills within a relaxed but well-controlled atmosphere. In the Sixth Form, the boarding life encourages each young adult to make the most of the wide range of opportunities available to allow them to move smoothly towards higher education and the world of work.
