How the Process Works

Many of our Sixth Form students begin their educational journey at Taunton School; however, we happily welcome admissions to the Sixth Form. 

Here’s our easy step by step guide to the Sixth Form admissions process.

  • Step 1 – Initial Enquiry

    Please do call or email to express your interest and provide your child’s name, date of birth and current school.  Alternatively, please click here to send an enquiry via the website. In response to your initial enquiry, a prospectus will be sent to you. This will contain information on academic programmes offered, school activities, policies and procedures, fees, scholarships and general information

  • Step 2 – Visit and Taster Day

    To learn more about Taunton School, you are welcome to visit, to have a look round the School and to meet the Headmaster.  You may also like to arrange for your child to spend a taster day with us.

  • Step 3 – Registration

    At any stage, if you wish to register your interest in your child joining the School, you will be invited to complete a registration form and return it to us with the registration fee. 

  • Step 4 – Acknowledgement of Registration

    A letter acknowledging your registration will be sent, asking your permission to allow us to contact your child’s Headteacher to request a copy of your child’s most recent school reports and a school reference.  Alternatively, you may wish to acquire this information and forward it to us. 

    Pupils in education outside the UK may be asked to sit assessment tests.

  • Step 5 – Offer of a Place

    Once the above steps are complete, we will be in a position to offer a place.  The Headmaster will send you an offer letter, with an acceptance form and a copy of our standard terms and conditions.

  • Step 6 – Acceptance of a Place

    Completion and return of the acceptance form, together with the acceptance deposit (which is returned to you when your child leaves the School), will secure the place and form the contract with the School.  Confirmation will be sent, together with early joining information. Further joining information is sent out in mid-July for pupils starting in September.
