Every child at Taunton School belongs to a house for their whole educational journey, whether they’re boarders or day pupils, ensuring a real sense of belonging that offers the familiarity, consistency, support and care of the family environment.

In addition, every child has a House Tutor and Head of House who are constantly on hand to offer support, advice and guidance both academically and pastorally. But the support and sense of family doesn’t end there, older pupils are very supportive and often become role models for the younger children of the house. Plus, our Peer Monitoring system ensures Seniors, who are trained as counsellors, are always available to support and assist other day pupils.

In our experience, belonging to a house encourages a sense of pride, camaraderie and an infectious team spirit that is fiercely demonstrated during in-house competitions and school events.
