Senior 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 its 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 buddying up with our mentors, Senior students learn the ropes, adapt easily to our house system and settle in very quickly.  And with pastoral care high on our agenda, your child also receives a high level of care and guidance from our Housemasters, Housemistresses, House Tutors and staff who are always on hand to ensure they are happy and fulfilling their academic potential.


At Taunton School, we offer full and weekly boarding. Providing a very homely atmosphere, boarders flourish in our caring and nurturing environment, whilst making long term friendships and experiencing a life-changing education.
