Our hockey teams have reached 12 National Finals, our Chapel Choir sings Evensong in cathedrals every term, our theatre is the venue for outstanding drama, we have a thriving CCF, and over half of our senior pupils undertake DofE Awards.

Pastoral Care

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 but not arrogant and fully prepared to contribute to life beyond the School gates.

University Places

University of Oxford (Law), Berklee College of Music USA (Film Score Writing) Cushman & Wakefield (Surveying Degree Apprenticeship).

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

‘King’s Bruton combines an enviable pastoral heart with academic challenge and amazing opportunities.’ Ian Wilmshurst, Headmaster.

Outstanding Characteristics

King’s Bruton is a remarkable school with over 500 years of history. The key to our success, and increasing popularity, is to combine our relatively small size with a high-quality, full boarding education. The School was honoured to host Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to open our new Music School in 2019 as part of our 500th celebrations.
