Open Mornings

Experience Taunton School at one of our upcoming open events

For over 175 years, we’ve been challenging, nurturing and inspiring young people so that they are prepared to succeed in life after school.

The best way to experience Taunton School is to attend an Open Morning. You’ll get to meet our Heads and teachers, take a tour around campus and even hear from current pupils. Or, if you’re unable to attend in person, we also run virtual open events where you can learn about the school through a live webinar.

To register to attend an Open Morning, please view our upcoming events below. If you have any other general enquiries about joining Taunton School and would like to speak with our friendly Admissions team, please do get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

Discover Taunton School

From Nursery and Pre-Prep, all the way to Sixth Form, we are one school with one journey – sharing the same vision for our children. Below you can find out about each stage of the Taunton School journey and learn more about exactly what your child can expect from their educational journey here.

The Taunton School journey starts in Nursery (with babies from six months) and Pre-Prep (with children aged 4 to 7).

Each step of Nursery and Pre-Prep is tailored to your child’s age and stage of development to create a learning environment in which they can truly thrive.

Whatever year group your child joins us in, you can be confident that they will be nurtured in a supportive environment by our experienced staff to promote their development at this vital stage in their educational journey.

We have a dedicated team of teachers who are committed to helping your child reach their full potential, and while we are a non-selective school, we are proud that our results are well above national average.

Our Prep School is also home to ‘Thone House’, our junior boarding school that is home to up to 40 full-time boarders – all of whom are cared for by our team of experienced and friendly staff.

Taunton Senior School welcomes students from Year 9 through to Year 13, with around 540 students (of which 250 are boarders).

The school is non-selective, which means there are no entrance exams. This leads to a cohort with a broad range of ability and yet our results are excellent and our dedicated team of teachers are committed to helping every student reach their full potential.

As well as our exceptional academic results, we also have outstanding facilities on-site to nurture talent in sport, music and other co-curricular activities.
