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 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 interviewed by Skype or in person if they are able to visit the school. If English is not their first language, applicants will be expected to sit an online English test.
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.
