Taunton School was founded in 1847 and the beautiful old buildings are complemented by modern facilities including two swimming pools, a fitness suite, a modern theatre, a music school, a spacious library, well-equipped art studios and latest IT suites. Taunton School is a lively, international community leading the way in independent education. We offer the very successful IB Diploma alongside our A level programme.

Taunton School International's One Year GCSE / Pre-IB Programme offers 24 examinable subjects and is an excellent preparation for students before they begin their A level studies or the IB Diploma at Taunton School or elsewhere. This is a high quality course preparing students well for life in a British boarding school academically, socially and culturally.
At the International Middle School, pupils aged 8—14 are provided with an intensive education in the English Language alongside core subjects such as Mathematics, Science, ICT, Art, Humanities, and Physical Education. This is a 'stepping stone' course providing students with the necessary academic and social skills to make the transition smoothly into a British Preparatory or Secondary school.

The Senior Summer courses are for students between the ages of 13 and 17, and combine intensive English tuition with other academic subjects.
