Values and vision

King’s Bruton is a smaller independent school and, as such, its values and vision revolve around the tight-knit community of students that it has cultivated. The Somerset school promotes a sense of loyalty, determination and encourages pupils to go above and beyond both in and out of the classroom.

Emphasis is placed on inclusivity and promoting diversity within the school. King’s Bruton aims to foster a culture of acceptance and respect in all aspects of school life.
