King's Bruton

Overseas Applicants

In This Section


King’s Bruton continues to welcome pupils from all countries of the world and encourages applications from interested families and agents.  

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, Europe or international pupils and continue to ensure the fees remain consistent across all nationalities. Boarding is an essential part of life at King’s Bruton, and currently boarders and day pupils are fully integrated into all of the Boarding Houses.  

How to Apply

Overseas pupils apply via educational agencies or directly to the School. We assess applicants in several ways:

  • Scrutiny of reports from all current and previous educational establishments
  • The Cambridge English Placement Test (CEPT): an online English language assessment tool
  • GL CAT4 cognitive abilities test
  • Interview, either in person or remotely

We may require a combination of these assessments, depending on the pupil’s previous educational background and the extent of information received from the previous schools.


All international students, including those coming from Europe, who come to study in the UK will now need to apply for a visa.  The Child Student and Student visas have now replaced the Tier 4 (General) and Tier 4 (Child) student visas.  More information regarding the Child Student and Student visa route can be found here.
