Trips, Excursions 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 and the world heritage site of Stonehenge.
Excursions are also about having fun and 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 be 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, water zorbing, circus skills, bubble football, 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.
