Description Queens College Taunton

  • Students age: 3-18 years old (boarding house from 11 years old.)

Queens College Taunton is a mixed boarding school: boys, and girls from around the world aged 3 to 11 years. There is a school campus in Taunton, a picturesque and developed place in the south-west of England: the road to Bristol airport will take only 40 minutes, and London Heathrow can be reached in about 2.5 hours.

In addition to academic education, the school pays much attention to the creative and athletic development of its pupils. There are unusually strong and developed faculties of acting, art, music and design: many students even later associate their profession with the art world, starting to study at the Queens College Taunton.

The first schoolchildren entered Queens College Taunton in 1843, and today about 790 people receive a quality British education. 210 of them study in the elementary school program (Prep-School), 420 in the middle school (Senior School) and 160 are students of the Sixth Form programs. In addition to the full-time form of education, the school also accepts a full board: approximately 175 students (84 of them - foreign students) permanently reside on the campus.

The institution deservedly prides itself on the quality of its academic education, which is emphasized by the results of the students in the examinations. Thus, in 2012, at the GCSE level, 53.5% of the students received the highest A *-A scores, and at the A-level level 79.3% of the students earned excellent grades from A * to B. The institution is a full member of many well-known and respected organizations, including ISC (Independent Schools Council), the Headmasters 'and Headmistresses' Conference.
