Netball is the girl’s main sport for the Lent term. With Netball courts in both the main Taunton School Hall and Preparatory School Hall, four outdoor courts on the Prep School’s Greenham site and access to 4 more at Uppers, the girls make great use of our facilities.
As with the other sports that the girls partake in, they play in their age groups. The only exceptions will be in county or national competitions where as many pupils as possible can represent the school at an appropriate level. A number of girls each year gain selection for the Somerset Academy squads. Fixtures take place on most Wednesdays and Saturdays with numerous tournaments during the year.
Girls also benefit from Netball runs in the autumn in preparation for the beginning of the Netball term in January. The school has a dedicated Head of Netball who coaches across all schools.
