The Curriculum

King’s Hall School encourages academic excellence, offering the very latest in technology and facilities that allow pupils to achieve their very best.

Games & The Arts

The school prides itself on encouraging ‘all-round’ development. All are encouraged to play sport and be involved in the vast selection of musical, artistic and dramatic opportunities available to them.

Pastoral Care

A warm community spirit prevails at all times. Boarding houses have the ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere that is so difficult to find. Food is freshly prepared on site and locally sourced where possible.

Senior Exit Schools

Pupils transfer to the UK’s leading senior schools, including our partner school King’s College, Taunton, after Common Entrance.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

At King’s Hall School we don’t put a ceiling on what the children can do – they are astonishing and can do incredible things. Each child is nurtured to achieve personal excellence.

Outstanding Characteristics

King’s Hall School stands out from the crowd as a thoroughly modern traditional day and boarding school with a genuine family atmosphere. The surroundings are quite unique: a grand country house, built in 1758, located just outside bustling Taunton, with beautiful views spanning fields of grazing ponies. A balance between tradition and progression is evident.
