Taunton School at Dusk

Join our boarding community

We have a close-knit community of boarders, with five boarding houses for senior boarders aged 13 to 18.

Each of the houses are proud to have their own unique history, identity and community. However, they share many things in common: outstanding pastoral care, inviting and spacious rooms, and a fantastic range of modern facilities on their doorstep.

These houses are all located on our beautiful rural campus in the heart of Taunton, Somerset – close to the nearby cities of Bristol, Bath and Exeter, or a 1 hour 40 minute train journey from London.
