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.
Fiona Donaldson, Head of Sixth Form said “This year’s results are really fabulous. The girls have worked so hard throughout the year and have been such fun to teach. I am delighted that they have achieved the grades they need to further their education and the majority will go on to study at the University of their choice.”
In addition to the superb number of A-grades, this years’ results equal the tremendous percentage awarded for A*- C grades last year, when the school achieved the best results for the last six years. The results were so impressive, the average grades achieved by each girl, based on point score was AAB. This year, 64% of the girls achieved at least one A or A* grade compared to 47% two years ago. In addition to this 14% of girls achieved at least three A or A* grades this year.
Headmistress, Nicola Botterill commented: “I could not be happier with the results achieved this year; especially as this is my first year as headmistress at the school. I am passionate about education and we are constantly looking at new ways to instil excellence in everything we do – these outstanding results show we are going from strength to strength and I am especially looking forward to the new academic year with our newly remodelled Sixth Form centre,” she added.
The school is one of only 27 schools in the country, and the only one in the South West, to hold the Eco Schools Ambassador Award – demonstrating green issues and sustainability are embedded into the ethos of the school. In addition to a first class education the school also adds value through extra-curricular activities and enhances creativity through its community art and eco links.
