Established in 1900 and set in beautiful English countryside in Somerset, overlooking Glastonbury Tor, Bruton School for Girls is a day and boarding school with a history of all-round academic excellence amongst a ‘home from home’ atmosphere.
Headmistress, Nicola Botterill said: “Our GCSE and A-level results this year have been truly outstanding. It’s such a pleasure to see all the hard work pay off and I hope the girls are as thrilled with their results as the teachers are. I am delighted they have achieved the grades and look forward to seeing many of them return to continue their studies within our new Sixth Form centre.”
This year’s results show that 94% achieved 5 or more A*- C grades, 85% achieved 8 or more A*- C grades and 82% of all grades were A*- B – which is a remarkable result.
