Prep School Military Families

Military families have been part of Taunton School for many years and contribute greatly to our broad and diverse community.

Children from military backgrounds are familiar with the upheaval of military life and have often attended several military schools before joining us.  As well rounded, independent individuals, they enjoy the stability, consistency and undisrupted education that Taunton School can offer, whether it’s through full, weekly or flexible boarding.

We believe that every child should benefit from an exceptional education, which is why we offer significant financial support for military families in receipt of CEA. View military families fees information below.

By becoming part of the Taunton School family, your child will benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum with a strong emphasis on English, Mathematics and Science, taught by highly qualified teachers.  With access to a dedicated Learning Success Department comprising of highly qualified specialist teachers offering additional support if required, your child will develop a passion for learning as well as enjoy a rich and varied life outside of the classroom.

We work hard to minimise any extras, our fees include all tuition, 3 meals a day, snacks, laundry, books, internet access and all boarding weekend trips. In fact, all you’ll need is a small amount of pocket money.

Military Boarding

We find that children of military families are often well rounded and independent, which is why they tend to excel at boarding life.

We also recognise that deployment is not always planned and often last minute, which is why boarding is a great option for you and your child. Boarding offers continuity and security, as well as an undisrupted education.

The warm, friendly and caring atmosphere of Thone House offers a great home from home environment where children flourish and develop their sense of independence, whilst forming amazing friendships with their peers.

With a rich and fulfilling programme of evening and weekend entertainment and activities to enjoy, your child’s time as a boarder will be fun packed and rewarding.

At Thone House, we offer full, weekly and flexible boarding. The latter being a great option for parents who are away for short periods of time and would like their child to benefit from the care and support provided by Taunton Prep School.
