Welcome to King's Hall School

Welcome to the King's Hall School website. We hope you enjoy this snapshot of life in our friendly school. King's Hall is an independent co-educational boarding and day prep school in Taunton, Somerset with over 300 pupils aged 2-13 years. Part of King’s Schools, Taunton, along with our senior school, King's College, we provide inspirational teaching, superb facilities, and our nurturing of individual potential combines to create an environment in which young people achieve great things.

A Welcome from the Headmaster

A Welcome from the Headmaster

"On my first visit to King’s Hall I was struck by the tangible warmth and friendliness of children, staff and parents. The school hums with life and laughter as the children and teachers apply themselves with great energy to create a wonderful environment for learning. Children benefit from a genuinely rounded education where each individual is encouraged to fulfil their own potential, not only academically but also to take advantage of the plentiful opportunities presented to them in areas such as music, sport, drama and art."

Joining at Nursery

Joining at Nursery

Children can join King's Hall from the age of 2. This is a small and friendly setting in which every child benefits from our rural location and extensive grounds. The curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child, with the benefit of small class sizes and inspirational teachers.

Joining at Reception

Joining at Reception

Many children join us in Reception to continue the next stages of their development. It can be a little daunting moving up to new class, which is why we like to make this feel as easy as possible and start to introduce children to their new teachers and routine during the Summer Term.

Joining King's at Age 11

We have an intake at age 11, when many children are considering a move to senior school. Pupils joining at 11 begin in the more intimate atmosphere of King’s Hall, where they find their feet, before moving at 13 to our senior school, King’s College.
