King's Bruton


In This Section

Welcome to the Events page of the King’s website.

The School sees itself as a community made up of the students, the staff, the parents, the Friends of King’s and the alumni. And as with every community we strive to provide opportunities for all the constituent parts to come together in support of this wonderful school. Music, sport and drama are wonderful vehicles for bringing people together and more details of these events can be found in the relevant sections of the website. The rhythm of events can be seen below, but there are other opportunities that present themselves on a term by term basis, the details of which will be advertised on the website and in the school calendar.
