Our vision is to challenge, nurture and inspire and we are delighted to be able to invite children from all schools in the area (Years 3 to 6), to take part in this unique and exciting programme of enrichment activities held on Saturday mornings at Taunton School.
Our aim is to provide high-quality fun and inspiring opportunities across a range of specific areas for children who genuinely wish to develop their skills.
There is a choice of five different programmes: Performing Arts (acting, singing and dancing), Design & Technology, Art, Sports and Cookery. Each programme has been designed by our Head of Department in that subject and they run the activities each week along with other Taunton Prep School teachers.

Experts say that developing fundamental physical capabilities and movement skills such as balance, co-ordination, agility, strength and speed, tactical awareness and decision making, make the biggest difference to children’s sporting performance in the long run. Referred to as ‘Long Term Athlete Development’, these sessions are designed to give youngsters the best possible chance of going to achieve excellence in individual sports. Half of the session focuses on athletics, development with the other half spent taking part in their chosen sport.
