Senior Trips and Activities

A Taunton School summer course includes lots of new adventures and experiences. It is important for students to see and discover as much as they can as this further fuels their appetite for learning.

Over the duration of their course, students see many different aspects of British culture, such as the galleries and museums of London, the world- famous colleges of Oxford University, Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Roman City of Bath through to the historic city port of Bristol and World Heritage Site of Stonehenge.

Excursions are also about having fun, so some courses include trips to theme parks, beaches and famous cities, as well as offering the chance to explore the outstanding natural beauty in the area surrounding Taunton School.

We want our students to keep busy after lessons, therefore in the evenings, we offer a wide range of sports, activities and workshops which cater for all interests and ages. You could try your hand at archery, fencing, zorbing, sailing, canoeing, climbing on the high ropes, croquet, T-shirt painting and horse riding to name but a few!

Our summer courses are designed to bring students together and grow cross-cultural friendships as well as being full of fun and adventure. They give students the opportunity to build on their strengths and discover new talents, interests and abilities and, by the end of the course, we expect all of our students to have tried many new things and to have increased confidence in their ‘can do’ approach to life.

*Please note that the full trips, excursions and activities programme does not apply to the Pre-Sessional Courses, although a reduced programme of co-curricular activities is included.

My best experience at Summer School was that I could work with people who are on the same level with their English that I was and it really motivated me to work harder and to improve even more. I would definitely recommend to go to Summer School before coming to Taunton School or for one summer to improve your English or even to have fun at learning, because it takes away the fear of coming into such a big school. You get to know so many people from other nationalities and you don’t only just learn, you learn and have fun.
