More importantly, we constantly work to improve the culture of our forward-thinking school, ensuring that everyone working and studying is valued and consistently nurtured, both educationally and emotionally.
We are fortunate enough to be nestled in the beautiful Somerset countryside, yet within easy reach of the M5 and the historic market town of Taunton. Taunton itself offers a good range of facilities, particularly for sports enthusiasts. The town has a railway station which offers superb links to London Paddington and beyond.
