School Profile

There are 350 pupils at King’s Bruton and the key to our success, and sustained popularity, is to combine our relatively small size with a high quality education. The community spirit is what makes us stand out. We are a close-knit school where no one is left out. The friendly atmosphere allows individual personalities to develop.

Pupils at King’s are offered a challenging and stimulating curriculum that has been designed to stretch their capabilities and maximise their personal development. In recent years we have had outstanding GCSE, A-Level and BTEC results with the vast majority of our pupils going on to their first choice of university.

Sport plays a key role in providing camaraderie, leadership and teamwork opportunities, physical and mental challenge, and it sees pupils given the chance to display empathy, confidence, creativity, determination and self-discipline.

The new state-of-the-art Queen Elizabeth Music School, opened by Her Majesty The Queen in March 2019, provides an unrivalled base for music and music technology, whilst our 200-seat theatre is the venue for outstanding drama.

The Art Department is a prosperous hub of all things creative, and within walking distance of the world-renowned Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery, which we visit regularly.

Our thriving CCF is one of the oldest in the country and over half of our senior pupils undertake Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Every week, over 70 extra-curricular activities are on offer to pupils ranging from Astronomy to Silversmithing.

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. King’s is a busy, happy and thriving community and we would be delighted to welcome you for a visit.
