King’s Bruton is an HMC boarding and day school educating around 300 boys and girls aged 13 to 18 in the strikingly beautiful Somerset town of Bruton. King’s Bruton is worth considering if you are looking for an old famous British boarding school near London. Our most recent Ofsted and ISI inspections have rated our education as 'outstanding’ and 'excellent’ respectively. Our significant strengths include the school’s size, recent best ever academic results, and renowned pastoral care. Pupils of all abilities are nurtured and challenged, and we are proud of our nationally acknowledged record of adding value to each child’s performance in the classroom.

We have seven boarding Houses – four boys, three girls – in which boarders and day pupils are fully integrated, another major strength of the school. Boys and girls cannot get lost, hide or drift here. Pupils have opportunities to both participate and excel in sport, music, drama and a host of extra-curricular activities, ranging from kayaking to debating, horse-riding to critical thinking.

Sixth Form Boarding School

The Lower Sixth Project:  At the start of the Lower Sixth all pupils undertake a short research project based on an issue of question relating to one of their AS subject choices.  This undertaking is supported by a course of research skills sessions based on the University of East Anglia pre-U study skills programme.  The purpose of the project is three-fold:  to deliver a study/research skills programme to the pupils in relation to a 'live’ piece of work; to highlight the heightened expectations regarding independent study at A Level and encourage positive working habits and time-management skills from the outset of the A Level course.

The Extended Project Qualification:  The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is offered to all Sixth Formers and is an opportunity to complete a 5000 word project or create an artefact (e.g. composition, model, performance) based on independent research.  In addition to the main project candidates complete a log-book detailing their working processes and decision-making encouraging meta-learning and critical thinking and deliver a presentation on the process and final product.  The EPQ is equivalent to an AS level with grades A* to E available, and is recognised by universities as demonstrating aspiration, intellectual curiosity and higher order study skills in pupils who achieve high grades.
