Welcome to Taunton School

A very warm welcome to the Taunton School website. I hope you find the pages here provide valuable information on each of our family of schools. Taunton School is characterised by a restless energy and ambition, unusually coupled with a sense of humility. Our community is aspirational yet unpretentious. We seek to develop a quiet self-confidence in our pupils, with no hint of arrogance. We encourage all students to engage fully with the range of opportunities available to them and, above all, we ask them to look after one another.

It is certainly a very exciting time to join Taunton School. We are in the midst of a hugely ambitious campus development plan to enhance the school’s already outstanding facilities. Following the completion of the new Dining Hall, Sixth Form Centre and Library, work now begins on exciting new play spaces as we develop the Green Heart of the campus, transformational improvements to sporting facilities and, ultimately, an outstanding new international school which will unite all Taunton School pupils on the same site.

Our mission is to ensure that the education we provide at Taunton School plays to the strengths of each and every child. We aim to challenge, nurture and inspire all those who join our community. Our school is large enough to provide a breadth of opportunity yet small enough for everyone to feel part of a connected community.

Please enjoy browsing our website and do take the opportunity to come and visit us. We look forward to welcoming you.
