How the Process Works

Many of our Prep students begin their educational journey at Taunton School and have progressed from Nursery through to Pre-Prep before joining our Prep School. However, we warmly welcome admissions to Taunton Prep School from age 7-13.

Here’s our easy step by step guide to the Preparatory School admissions process.

For further information or to arrange a visit, please contact Lucie Baker on 01823 703303 or email tpsadmissions@tauntonschool.co.uk

  • Step 1 – Enquiry

    • Please make your enquiry by email with your child’s name, date of birth, copy of their passport (international students) and the most recent school report.
    • We’ll send you a Prospectus Pack containing a Registration Form.
    • Please complete and return the Registration Form along with the £100 registration fee - this will ensure that your child is on the future entrants’ reservation list.
    • Arrange to visit Taunton Prep School to see what we have to offer.

  • Step 2 – Visit and Taster Day

    Once we have received your registration form we will invite you in to meet the Headmaster and have a tour of our school. We will then invite your child to a Taster Day to come and experience the Prep School. 

  • Step 3 – Assessments

    On a separate occasion, we will invite your child to come and sit some assessments. 

  • Step 4 – Offer of a place

    Subject to satisfactory assessments and a reference from your child's current school, you will be offered a place. 

  • Step 6 - Joining instructions

    We’ll send you all the information you need regarding joining Taunton School, including term dates, fees schedule, New Pupil's handbook and uniform list.

  • Step 7 - CAS

    For international students, we'll also require your arrival information (flight/train/taxi details) and a copy of your visa once it has been granted.
