King's Bruton

Aims of the School

In This Section

King’s Bruton is a boarding and day school, which places a very high value on a genuinely holistic education in which every individual pupil is given an opportunity to flourish and develop.

The School constantly strives to set standards that are well beyond what might normally be expected. The five main aims of the strategic development plan are:

  1. To develop further the School’s warm and supportive boarding community, and to provide a comprehensive all round education in which pupils of all ages are valued as individuals.
  2. To continue to raise the academic expectations of all pupils at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, and in terms of their higher education and career aspirations within a broad and balanced curriculum.
  3. To ensure that, within the School’s resources, access to a King’s education and facilities are as open as possible to the wider community.
  4. To aim for excellence in the fields of sport and the performing arts.
  5. To enhance the School’s strong Christian ethos, and to continue to encourage and support pupils in their spiritual growth and faith.

My time at King's taught me the importance of self-reliance, self-belief, the importance of a team or collective and to take pride in everything, and give everything your best effort. More significantly, it taught me the importance of having a dream - it might take some time, and people might doubt you along the way, but with determination comes the desired outcome. As a result of all of those lessons, I achieved mine in more ways than I ever thought possible. - Adam Nunn (Blackford House 91/96)
