Published on isbi School News dated Wednesday 16th of January 2013

The quality of teaching and pupils' learning at King's Bruton is excellent, according to the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). The pastoral care at King's is also considered excellent.

The glowing report follows an 'outstanding' Ofsted report and last year's best ever A Level results .

The Headmaster, Ian Wilmshurst, said he was delighted with the report. 'The staff at King's are providing a quality education for all pupils; I was particularly pleased that the inspectors acknowledged that our pupils work hard, aim high and look after each other. The lead inspector concluded her verbal feedback to me by saying, 'Headmaster, you should be very proud of this school.' I am.'

The report concludes that:
* The quality of academic and other achievements is excellent. Pupils are very well educated in accordance with the school's aims; they aim high and achieve well, both in academic examinations and in the multiplicity of extra-curricular activities in which they are encouraged to participate.
* The personal development of pupils is excellent. Pupils are confident, relaxed and articulate. The spiritual and emotional development of the pupils is supported by the school's Christian ethos. They are sensitive to the needs of others, quickly offering help to those around them. They support and encourage one another, celebrating successes and empathising with those in difficulty.
* The quality of boarding provision and care is excellent. House staff work very diligently, together with matrons and non-resident house tutors, to ensure that each day runs smoothly.
* There is a clear, shared vision, with strong leadership driving the school's improvement.
