King's Schools

King's College is part of King’s Schools, Taunton along with its prep school King's Hall. The schools provide continuous day and boarding education for girls and boys aged 2 to 18 years.

King’s College has approximately 460 pupils from 13 to 18, while King’s Hall School has approximately 300 children from 2 to 13.

Both schools provide inspired teaching, superb facilities, and our nurturing of individual potential combine to create an environment in which young people achieve great things.

Our strong boarding ethos is central. The fact that so many pupils and staff live on site creates a strong sense of community. The school is small enough to be friendly and yet large enough to compete nationally.

As well as being an exceptionally happy school, we are busy and purposeful. Our pupils leave here very well-qualified, but more importantly they leave as well-rounded, balanced individuals, who have been nurtured and encouraged to grow, and develop and explore.

A good work ethic and small class sizes help sustain progress, and specialist teaching is the norm, with great emphasis placed on developing the individual: kindness, consideration, courtesy and respect for one another. The outstanding modern facilities and stunning locations ensure that children enjoy a challenging all-round education in a progressive, secure and stimulating environment.

Pupils work hard, following a traditional curriculum, strong on rigour and the difficult academic subjects, taught by teachers chosen for their deep knowledge of the subject and their infectious enthusiasm. They instill a natural love of learning and, as a result, 98% of pupils at King’s College go on to university, many to Oxford and Cambridge and other international universities, and we have consistently high standards of academic achievement.

The wide programme of co-curricular activities available at both schools are popular across all age groups and ensure pupils are engaged, stretched and challenged outside of the classroom. Activities include outdoor pursuits, Combined Cadet Force (CCF), DofE, music, drama, Leiths School of Food and Wine and debating.

In their everyday life around the school, they show the confidence to succeed, and the determination to give of their very best. We hope you enjoy seeing just a glimpse of school life in the following pages, and then come to visit us yourself. You'll be most welcome!
