Founded in 1847, Taunton School is set in a beautiful 50-acre site in one of the most attractive counties in England. It boasts a fine range of high quality 19th century gothic style buildings, complemented by 20th century additions including a brand-new state of the art venue facility with a capacity to seat up to 440 people. Taunton School Enterprises boasts over 10 versatile venue spaces including a professional auditorium, large dining rooms, spacious halls with staging areas and huge sports halls, ideal for blank canvas balls, fairs and exhibitions.

Our onsite Chapel is a beautiful venue for wedding ceremonies and we can also offer facilities for Civil Services, Wedding Blessings and Wedding Receptions.

Taunton School also host Christmas party nights during December, welcoming a variety of companies and private groups for a greeting drink and 3-course meal. Guests then enjoy the rest of the evening either dancing the night away with our disco or having a festive flutter at the Fun Casino!
