A warm welcome to the Summer School at Taunton School

Every year it is our pleasure to welcome students from all over the world to study at our Summer School at Taunton School.  We pride ourselves on creating a safe, happy, action packed, disciplined and supportive educational environment that challenges, nurtures and inspires every one of our students.

Established in 1847, Taunton School has long been one of the leading providers of private education in the UK.  We are located in the beautiful rural county of Somerset in the South West of England, occupying a 56 acre site with superb facilities.

We have been educating international students on our Summer School courses for more than 20 years, providing a wonderful balance of academic subjects, sports, activities and trips.  Our Summer School courses offer a genuine taste of British boarding school life and our students take home with them memories, experiences and friendships they will never forget.

We look forward to seeing you on one of our Summer courses in 2021, where many opportunities and a warm welcome awaits you.


Senior Summer School courses are offered to students aged between 13 and 17 years old.
