Taunton School named as finalists in 2022 StudyTravel Secondary School Awards

Taunton School has been announced as a finalist in the 2022 StudyTravel Secondary School Awards.

The school, which welcomes students from over 40 different countries and is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, has been voted as one of the best in Europe by the international organisations that it works with.

The ST Secondary School Awards 2022 cover 13 categories, including regional awards for secondary schools in Europe, North America and Australia and New Zealand. They are specialist, peer-voted awards recognising excellence among schools, agents, service providers and associations working in the high school sector.

Principal of Taunton School International, Adrian Hallworth, said: “It is a real honour to have been named as a school that provides an excellent educational experience for its students and educational partners and agents. We are truly delighted to have been named among so many fantastic schools across the world and wish all of the finalists luck for the result at the end of April.”

Taunton School has recently announced plans to invest £20 million in a world-class campus development project which includes a brand new international school built on the main campus by September 2026. The development will also include a new state-of-the-art sixth-form centre and library for students and enhanced sports facilities. These plans follow the completion of a new dining hall in 2020, officially opened by HRH Princess Anne a year ago.

The winners of the ST Secondary Schools Awards 2022 will be announced during a special gala dinner on April 25.
