Welcome to Taunton School International

For international students applying to Taunton School, there are several options to consider, based on age, level of English, prior knowledge, subject preference and future career.

For international students with high levels of English (B2+), we recommend you attend the online Open Morning at either the Prep School (for 7 – 13 year old students) or the Senior School (for 13 – 18 year old students).

For international students with levels of English between low A1 and low B2, we recommend you attend this Open Morning so please see below for further details.

At Taunton School International, we provide a safe, happy and respectful environment in which we nurture, challenge and inspire young people of diverse nationalities to achieve their full potential.

Taunton School comprises two International Schools. 

For our younger students (8 – 14 years), there is TSIMS (Taunton School International Middle School), which provides a broad curriculum for international students with levels of English between A0 – B1.

For older international students (14 – 18 years) there is TSI (Taunton School International), situated on the main 56-acre site.  Here students can take GCSEs in one or two years or enrol on our Business Foundation programme for Sixth Form aged students.

Academically, we offer a range of exciting and inspiring courses, with a wide curriculum and a huge amount of individual support from teachers and tutors.  Learning is often tailored to the individual needs of the student and we make sure that parents are kept up-to-date with their child’s progress.

With all of our students away from home and their family and friends, we know how important it is to provide the very best in pastoral care.  Our highly experienced and caring house staff are always on hand to provide whatever support is needed, complemented by our Health Centre staff, comprising doctors, nurses, counsellors and physiotherapist.

All of our international students make full use of the outstanding facilities on the 56-acre Taunton School campus, including two indoor swimming pools, sports halls, fitness suite, climbing wall, tennis & squash courts, football pitches, music school, theatre, dance studio, library, sixth form centre, art school and the soon to be completed multi-million pound dining hall.

When you join Taunton School International, you instantly become part of a very warm, caring and supportive community with students from all over the world. You will also integrate with the British students at the Senior and Prep Schools in a variety of ways, for example, in sport, music, art, drama, lectures, social events, after-school clubs, weekend trips and inter-house competitions.

At Taunton School International you will be afforded the very best opportunities a British private school education can provide and I very much look forward to meeting you on our virtual Open Morning.
