Boarding & Pastoral Care

We put pastoral care and student wellbeing at the heart of everything we do.  A happy and contented child is one who will flourish and what better place to start that journey than at Taunton School, where students have the free reign of our safe and secure 56-acre campus in the beautiful county of Somerset in the South West of England.

Boarding plays a key role in our students’ exciting educational journey, helping them to cement lifelong friendships, build confidence and develop independence and self-resilience. All students will experience a warm and supportive atmosphere in their selected house and the house becomes a focal point of students’ lives at school; boarders take pride in supporting each other at sports matches, music and drama performances and there is a strong sense of community at our inter-house events.

Taunton School has a clear set of rules and expectations, based on mutual respect and tolerance, which have been designed with our students’ safety and well-being in mind. Occasionally students make mistakes and we help them learn from these experiences in a constructive and consistent manner.

Our students come from many different backgrounds and we celebrate the diverse range of nationalities, cultures and faiths within the boarding community and continually offer opportunities for students to embrace the world around us.  A range of activities, sporting programmes, trips, excursions and cultural events help our students to integrate and broaden their horizons whilst also ensuring there is never a dull day.

Our staff understand that this is, for many, their first experience of life away from home, and work hard to ensure a family, friendly atmosphere in the boarding houses.

Prospective students and their parents are always welcome to visit and we look forward to showing you around one of our 8 boarding houses at Taunton School.
