Taunton School unveils plans to invest in a £20million world-class campus development

Work begins next week on a new state-of-the-art sixth-form centre and library for the school which celebrates its 175th anniversary this year, followed by proposals for enhanced sports facilities and a brand new international school.

The project also includes the creation of a green and sustainable pedestrianised hub linking boarding houses, teaching and dining blocks.

Proposals encompass moving Taunton’s current international school from its current site to the main campus; as well as developing two new Astroturf pitches, benefitting both the school and local community.

“These exciting developments are a reflection of our success locally, and globally”

“The project marks the start of a very exciting and important new chapter in Taunton School’s long history.”

said Headmaster Lee Glaser.

These plans follow the completion of a new dining hall in 2020, officially opened by HRH Princess Anne a year ago.

About Taunton School

Taunton School is one of the South West’s leading co-educational independent day and boarding schools for children aged 0-18 years.

Founded in 1847, the school’s 56-acre site is home to five separate schools: a nursery, a pre-preparatory school, a prep school, senior school and an international school.

The international school was the first of its kind to be opened by a UK independent school on site in 1996.

Taunton School is the only UK independent school to offer sixth-formers four alternative pathways to higher education.
