Well IMO you would want your children to go to either Heathfield or Castle secondary and bishops fox is ok. DO NOT GO TO TAUNTON ACADEMY.

Primary wise- north town, trinity are both good.

There are 2 private options, so if you have the means then they might be an option.

Trull, corfe, cotford st Luke's, stoke at greogory are all nice villages outside of Taunton.

There are a number of new houses being thrown up out towards monkton but that does mean that Heathfield will be hugely over subscribed.....

It's nice place to live with good amenities I think.

Do you want to live right in the town, 15 mins from town on a bus route or a bit further out and rural?

There are 3 private schools in Taunton and Wellington just outside. All very good for different things, wellington in particular has very generous academic scholarships. Idk about state options.

Town centre has awful traffic, so chose carefully what side you're on depending on where youre working.
