Providing a safe, secure and fun environment is key to children’s happiness and a successful educational journey.

At Taunton School we ensure all of our boarders enjoy a wonderful, relaxed home from home experience with caring and nurturing house parents and house staff always on hand to provide pastoral care and support along the way.

Thone House is no different and offers a fun, relaxed family atmosphere focusing on your child’s wellbeing and happiness, as they form lifelong friendships and grow in independence.

With exceptional facilities, from spacious dormitories, lounges and recreational areas, to a dedicated ICT suite offering controlled access to the internet and study areas, your child will feel perfectly at home in our friendly and caring environment. We have recently refurbished our recreation room, which now boasts purpose made sofas and armchairs, a large cinema screen and wood laminate flooring.

Mealtimes are taken care of in our exceptional food hall that offers a broad range of choice to suit all tastes and requirements.

And with fun and fulfilling organised activities throughout the week and at weekends, plus access to the Senior School facilities, supervised prep won’t feel like a chore.

We offer full, weekly and flexible boarding at Thone House.
