King’s Bruton

Senior co-education school in Bruton, Somerset

Life at King’s Bruton is full of variety and opportunities, where pupils enjoy a broad and challenging academic curriculum that provides the ideal launch to their next stage of
education. With outstanding A Level, GCSE and BTEC results, students enjoy an exceptional level of success in gaining access to their first choice of university. The school enjoys excellent communication links and with a mainline train station just five minutes’ walk from the school, train transport to London, Bath, and Bristol could not be easier.


Extra-curricular activities are broad and far-reaching including a full choir, a large number of musical ensemble groups as well as sports teams that compete in national and international arenas whilst the 200-seat theatre is the venue for outstanding drama. Over half of our senior pupils undertake the challenging and rewarding Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards.


At the heart of the King’s Bruton community lie our six boarding houses, each with their own unique identity and nurturing system of pastoral care and support. King’s pupils are encouraged to respect themselves and others, to adopt a positive attitude, and to strive to be the best they can be. Pupils leave here confident and fully prepared to contribute to life beyond the school gates. 


The combination of King’s Bruton and Hazlegrove Prep School as a Foundation provides a busy, happy, and thriving community and we would be delighted to welcome you for a visit.
