Founded in 1900, Bruton School for Girls is a day and boarding school set in 40 acres of beautiful countryside in Bruton, Somerset.  The school is two hours south west of London and close to the cities of Bath and Bristol.

We enjoy an excellent academic reputation – the top school in Somerset and Dorset at GCSE (based on the attainment 8 DfE measure) - and in the Top 4 schools in the UK at A level (in The Telegraph ranking of small independent schools).

Our smaller size means we know each and every girl and our focus on every pupil as an individual sets us apart.  Girls join a stimulating and exciting environment where we provide the space and support to enable every one of our girls to reach their potential. 

We are a warm, friendly and welcoming school where girls quickly feel at home. Boarding houses are located on site and staff ensure girls find the right balance between work and relaxation.  A full programme of activities is arranged every weekend for boarders to enjoy.  There are three exeat weekends per year and one boarding house is kept open for international boarders in Year 9 and above to stay in school at exeat if they wish.

We look forward to meeting you and your daughter.
