The Old Brutonian Association

The Old Brutonian Association was founded in 1893 and has two main objectives which are enshrined to our Rules: to promote contact amongst Old Brutonians and to further the interests of the School.

All members of the OBA are encouraged to join the King's Bruton Community Site, giving them access to find fellow OBs, attend events and keep abreast of news.

Joining the OBA

With only a few exceptions, pupils at King's automatically become members of the Association upon leaving school. The Association is an independent body, run alongside King's Bruton, and is in regular contact with the Headmaster and teaching staff. We are grateful for the support given to us by the School for those activities which take place in Bruton.

The Association is a loyal and passionate supporter of the future of King's Bruton, generously contributing to major King's events and campaigns, such as The Queen Elizabeth Music School and the School Bursary Scheme. The Old Brutonian Association organises various events throughout the year; the London Lunch held in December, the AGM and several Bruton based social gatherings. The Rules also require the publishing of an annual newsletter, 'The Old Brutonian' and the maintenance of a charitable trust.

The Old Brutonian Association office is run by Rose Vigers-Belgeonne, the Hon Secretary and Emilie Head, Assistant Secretary. Please use the contact details below to get in touch with the OBA office.

I’m thrilled that you’re here and using this wonderful website to stay in touch with the school and the Association. Please do make use of all the resources within and contribute your own news and input! Do make sure you pass on details of this site to any of your old contemporaries who may not have signed up yet…we are steadily growing our members here, but our strength and success as an Association relies on numbers and there are still lots more of you who haven’t joined yet!

Having more of us involved here on the site and within the wider OBA allows us to provide better services that interest and help us all - from social gatherings, networking and mentoring, to sports clubs and more.

We’re looking at ways to expand what our Association can offer, and with our wealth of experience and knowledge, we are a huge untapped resource of professional and personal skills that can be put to good use for OBs to connect and help each other.

I urge you to get involved!

I look forward to meeting you soon at an OB event, now that thankfully we can start to put the disruptions of the pandemic behind us.

Floreat Brutonia!

Gemma Brunton (Saye) (W 92-94)
