5th October 2020 — Bruton School for Girls celebrated its 120th Birthday on Friday 2nd October 2020 and pupils and staff enjoyed a delicious birthday cake to mark the occasion.

While times change, the core values of the school do not. The first Headmistress, Miss Edith Radford, described the Sunny Hill girl as ‘…able to turn her hand to anything’ and this remains true 120 years later. Bruton School for Girls has always concentrated on educating girls to be fit for the future, whatever that may hold, and the school remains committed to this aim. Embracing new technology, new ideas and innovative approaches to ensure girls receive an education for life, rather than just a set of exam grades.

The school has been at the forefront of online learning and has been recognised for the quality and innovation of its teaching during the recent lockdown as a Finalist in the Independent School Awards 2020.

Headmistress, Jane Evans, said: “We are proud of our heritage and while we celebrate our past, we look to the future and the next 100 years. We are in a superb position moving forward to educate the next generation of girls locally, nationally and internationally.”

‘A year of celebration’ is planned to mark the 120th Anniversary and the school will be offering online open events throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms to showcase everything Bruton School for Girls has to offer from Nursery to Sixth Form.
