Welcome to the Taunton School Parent Teacher Association Website. The Association is run as a joint organisation between the Senior, Pre-Prep and Prep Schools. We are working to improve its communication with and between parents and hope this website is a big step in the right direction.
The Association’s main objective is to advance the education of the pupils and enhance their lives whilst at the School. To meet this objective, the Association raises funds to invest in things that will augment your children’s experience at the School. In the past, we’ve donated money to the Pre-Prep and Prep school playground, the radio station, stage lighting for the Centenary Hall, the house rooms in both Senior and Prep School, shelters for the new astro and our most recent investment was equipment for the recording studio in the new Music Department extension. Work is soon due to start on the redevelopment of the Prep School Playground with the installation of an canopy to provide shade and shelter, an outside classroom plus many other activity structures.
We run many social and fundraising events throughout the year including the traditional Christmas and Summer Fairs, quiz nights, coffee mornings to name but a few. One of the main events of the year is Summer Ball. This event also celebrates the Leavers as they move onto the next phase of their lives. The Ball is open to all parents and guardians of Taunton School, Taunton Prep School and Taunton Pre-Prep School, the leavers, and staff.
Another important goal of the association is to represent parents’ concerns, ideas and views to the School and to best do that we need your input on a regular basis. Our committee members welcome your input and will bring it to our meetings. All parents are welcome to attend PTA meetings, but can also contribute their thoughts through individual Committee members. To find out who the Committee members are and how to contact them, please go to the Committee page of this website.
