The Head and Governors of Taunton School invite applications for the role of COO. 

Founded in 1847, Taunton School is a vibrant, ambitious, co-educational day and boarding school, with a rich history of educational excellence.  Today, over 1200 pupils aged 0-18 years benefit from the school’s inspirational teaching, broad and inclusive co-curricular provision and wholehearted commitment to the wellbeing of the school community. Two international schools for pupils aged 7-18 years and the popularity of the IB reflect the school’s global outlook and continued commitment to preparing students to succeed within a global community.  Situated on a stunning 56-acre campus in the heart of Somerset, Taunton School offers a wealth of opportunities for students to be challenged, nurtured and inspired.
