Boarding Life

Offering all the comforts of a family environment, boarders call The Grange their home from home whilst pursuing their educational journey through Taunton School International Middle School.

Boys and girls live in separate boarding houses, with attractive, well-equipped, modern bedrooms and sharing with two to four other students. To ensure they settle in well and feel safe and happy, our dedicated staff provide a high level of pastoral care around the clock. We understand that this is, for many, their first time away from home and so we do all we can to develop a friendly, family atmosphere. Our staff are also passionate about supporting students with their academic needs too, ensuring they have every opportunity to achieve excellence. 

If students are unwell, they can receive support from our Matron in our on-site sick bay and we also have our own Heath Centre, with doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and counsellors on the main campus.

When it comes to meal times, our excellent catering team serves up delicious choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With an international menu on Wednesdays, homemade soups and snacks, hot dishes, vegetarian options, a salad bar and heaps of fresh fruit and vegetables on offer, all tastes and dietary requirements are well and truly catered for.

To encourage social interaction and develop valuable lifelong skills, our huge range of co-curricular activities ensure students have plenty of fun whilst pursuing new interests. Whether it’s learning to play an instrument, singing in a choir, excelling at sports, performing in a theatre production, joining a club or enjoying an excursion, there is plenty going on to keep students entertained in the evenings and at weekends.

Pupils also have access to the many wonderful facilities on the main campus, such as tennis courts, two indoor swimming pools, a fully equipped gym, climbing wall and sports halls. Participating in such activities provides the perfect way to keep fit and to make British friends.
