Boarding

Bruton School for Girls is a private boarding school in Somerset, England with superb opportunities for our girls.  Bruton boarders, seeking an excellent education in a private school in the UK, come from a diverse range of backgrounds and nationalities. They travel not only from around the UK, but also from around the world, to be part of a community that supports and embraces them during their school years and for the rest of their lives.

The school’s aim is to provide a safe, friendly and fun boarding environment which reflects the qualities of a good home life, nurturing the younger children and guiding them through adolescence towards maturity.   By fostering self-discipline and offering the opportunity to handle responsibility, we promote social confidence and assurance without arrogance.  Each of our experienced teams of house staff operate under the supervision of the Head of Boarding and provide the care, comfort and support which is so important for the girls’ well-being and success.  The boarding houses are a ‘home away from home’, a relaxing environment with an extended family of friends, many of whom become friends for life.

Bruton School for Girls is a member of the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) and the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA).  We are accredited for the Forces Continuity of Education Allowance.
