Frequently Asked Questions

In This Section


When should I register my son or daughter?

We can receive Registration Forms at any time, and we recommend that you register no later than the end of Year 6. This enables your son/daughter to become fully involved in the programme of events from Year 7 onwards.

How do I register my son or daughter?

Registration is on line and the form can be found on the Registration & Next Steps webpage, in this section. A non-refundable registration fee of £100 is payable by BACS and the bank details are on the registration form.

Does my son or daughter have to sit a pre-test or entrance exams?

We do not set pre-tests, neither do we have entrance exams. Most 3rd Form entry UK based applicants will be expected to sit Common Entrance (but this is not always the case), the results of which are used for setting on arrival into King’s Bruton.  Offers are made based on school reports, interviews with the Headmaster and information gained from previous schools.

Can I choose my son or daughter’s House?

House allocation is made by the Headmaster in the Easter Term prior to joining. Siblings may join the same House if they wish.

Do you offer a sibling discount?

We offer 25% discount to the third and subsequent children of families within the Foundation of King’s and Hazlegrove.

Do you offer a Forces discount?

We currently offer 20% discount to all members of the Armed Forces, irrespective of whether they are in receipt of CEA or not.

Transport and Travel - does the School organise this?

When pupils need to travel at Exeats and at half term, we have a Travel Officer who can arrange the necessary train tickets and taxis. Flight tickets should be arranged by parents or guardians.

For day pupils, are there school buses?

School bus routes are arranged on an annual basis and dependent on demand.
