Ian Wilmshurst, Headmaster, updates Old Brutonians on exciting developments at King's

The move to three enlarged boys’ houses has been a great success and we are now twinning boys’ and girls’ houses, on a termly rotational basis, for joint house events and tutor meetings, which will be an exciting new initiative to ensure that boys and girls can continue to mix in an supportive, mature, and relaxing environment. We have introduced a comprehensive programme of events to deal with the issues raised by the website Everyone’s Invited, and we were delighted to welcome OB, and former Head Girl, Daisy Mant (Wellelsey 2012-17) who spoke brilliantly to the 6th Form as part of a Question Time panel of experts on these important issues. King’s is now a fully co-educational school, and I am determined that we will work collectively to ensure that we are a safe, respectful school community.

The Senior Warden made the important announcement this week that Bruton School for Girls (BSG) will now join King’s and Hazlegrove as a third school within the King’s Foundation. BSG will continue as a girls’ only school, at least for the next two years, but the school is now owned and controlled by our Foundation. The BSG governors have all resigned, with two BSG governors subsequently joining the King’s and Hazlegrove governing board; a governors’ sub-committee will run BSG. This means that the King’s Foundation now owns the whole BSG site, and rental properties, and this opens up very exciting future opportunities.
