What will you receive if you complete this form
  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • We will then email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

  • Key information

    Taunton School offers a unique, UK based, two-year pathway to studying at some of the world’s leading English-speaking universities.

    Taunton’s new Pre-Foundation Year for 16 and 17-year-olds followed by the successful completion of the NCUK’s International Foundation Year means a guaranteed place on a degree course at one of more than 40 universities around the world.
    If your child needs to boost their confidence in using English for academic study and also needs extra support while adjusting to life away from home, this could be an excellent choice.
    Taunton’s two-year foundation programme bridges what can be a tricky gap between qualifications acquired at home and starting a degree at an English-speaking university.

    What does the 2 year course cover?

    Both courses are designed for students who want to pursue a career in finance, business or management.

    -The Taunton School PFY (Year 1) combines an in-depth English programme with courses in maths, business and economics. It is tailor-made so that students are able to make a flying start the following year when they join the NCUK’s International Foundation Year in Business.

    -Successful completion of NCUK’s IFY (Year 2) gives students guaranteed access to thousands of degree courses at universities in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
    Taunton’s counsellors support students during the University application process.

    Who should consider Taunton School’s Foundation courses?

    For some students, starting a two-year A-level or IB course is just not the best, or wisest, choice. These two university pathways (also offered by Taunton) require students to be up to speed linguistically and academically from day one.

    If they are not, there is a chance they will fall behind and drop out – or, at best, achieve lower grades than they require to fulfil offers from the universities of their choice.
    As well as academic knowledge, Taunton’s foundation courses delivers a specialist English language element and a breadth of cultural knowledge which readies students for degree-level study.


    Taunton school is based on a 56-acre site with extensive facilities. The school is 1 hour and 45 minutes by direct train from London. Exeter airport is 30 minutes away, as are the University cities of Bristol and Exeter.


    £12,995 per term, £38,985 per year. This fee includes all accommodation, healthcare, meals and sports facilities costs.
