Bruton Overview

At Bruton students will be able to choose from a variety of sessions in order to tailor their programme to their individual learning needs which are rated by High English Content, Considerable English Content or Some English Content.

On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays students can pick from a variety of English content sessions and activities in the mornings and afternoons.

On Wednesdays students have a full-day excursion and on Saturdays they can choose from a selection of English content sessions in the mornings and will attend a half-day excursion in the afternoon.

Most Sundays are arrival and departure days; students who are not arriving or departing on those days can take part in extra academic clubs or friendly games/activities and occasionally have the option to take part in an extra trip, for example a walk up to the Dovecot or a visit to the Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery.
