Story

To kick-start our 175th anniversary celebrations the school's Headmaster James Johnson was joined by parents and staff to cycle 100km in support of the school's means-tested Assisted Places Endowment Fund.

We believe that affordability should not be a barrier to entry and are committed to increasing our Assisted Places Endowment Fund so that more talented young people can have access to a Taunton School education. This year, we hope to develop this permanent fund to ensure the school can always continue to welcome students of all backgrounds.

Thank you for considering making a gift to Taunton School. Without your support all this would not be possible. Gifts of every amount make a tremendous difference.

Learn more about Assisted Places

Assisted Places are important to the whole Taunton School community. They positively impact every pupil at the school by bringing in new ideas, ensuring the school remains a diverse environment and preparing students for life in a global workplace.

Those on an Assisted Place recognise the magnitude of the opportunity they have been given. They are ambitious and they work hard. They understand that their education is a gift. In almost every case, those on an Assisted Place in our sixth form become prefects, leaders, captains and mentors of the school, encouraging others to do their best and become ambassadors for the school life.

I know I speak on behalf of all bursary recipients when I say that Taunton School and the generosity of its benefactors have changed our fates and for that we are more grateful than you will ever know. Thank you. Liam, recipient of an Assisted Place
