King’s Bruton welcomes applications from pupils from all over the world and from differing educational backgrounds. Currently, around 13% of our pupils are international and come from a range of countries across Europe and the world.
Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department is strong and we welcome applications from pupils who do not have English as their first language. They do need, however, to have sufficient levels of English to cope with being taught in English on entry to the School.
Please contact Vivienne Wells, Head of Overseas Recruitment directly for further information firstname.lastname@example.org or +44(0)7376000192
International applicants, or their agents, must provide us with copies of recent school reports and references together with an indication of current levels of English. Once registered, all applicants will be asked for an interview online, or in person if they are able to visit the School. Applicants will also be expected to sit our online entry tests in English, maths and non-verbal reasoning.
Most applicants who do not have English as their first language, will receive support from our EAL Department. The aim is to help international pupils access the curriculum and develop their study skills in English in order to integrate fully into the School’s academic life.
International applicants who do not hold a British or EU passport will need a visa to study at the School.
All international pupils, whose home is outside of the UK, will be expected to have a UK guardian. Whilst the school cannot arrange guardianship for families, we can provide a list of those accredited by AEGIS.
Vivienne Wells, our Head of Overseas Recruitment, regularly meets prospective pupils and their families whilst overseas. She, or her representative, will be visiting a number of countries and events during the next academic year.

With the deadline of 31st January looming for the UK’s departure from the Europe Union there remains uncertainty as to the future status and visa requirements of EU/EEA pupils studying at King's Bruton.
Post Brexit, King's will continue to welcome European pupils and encourage applications from interested families. Our European and International pupils bring great benefits to the School in all aspects of school life.
We have never differentiated school fees between UK, European or International pupils and will continue to ensure the fees remain consistent across all nationalities.
Although the political landscape around Brexit changes frequently, as of 30th August 2019, the situation for EU/EEA citizen studying in the UK is as follows but may be subject to change based on the outcome of any deal, or ‘no deal’.
Currently there are no requirements for EU/EEA pupils to have visas until after 31st December 2020.
We will continue to update the situation regarding EU/EEA pupils as more information is released.
