Alongside the award, Taunton School’s Chief Operating Officer Nikki Miller has been recognised as a finalist in the ‘Best School Business Leader’ category for the way the school has handled the global pandemic and for creating a unique pensions scheme for teachers.

The school has been named as a finalist in a number of recent awards, including Muddy Stiletto’s ‘Originality in Teaching Music and the Arts’ and Study Travel’s Best European School.

Headmaster Lee Glaser, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted in these notable awards, especially amongst such fantastic schools and school leaders in the UK.
