‘… we still remember the day we first dropped him off at school… we left with lots of wonders and questions. Would he be able to communicate in English? Would he be getting along well with his schoolmates? Would he miss us? Would he be able to take care of himself? And the next day when we went back to the school, he looked as if he had been there for a long time and was enjoying his school life already. Thank you so much for looking after him so well.’

The Good Schools Guide
A clear vision and an exciting future
Hazlegrove is a school that encourages individuality as well as valuing determination, passion and perseverance. The school’s main target is for pupils to leave aged 13 as confident young men and women ready for the many challenges that lay ahead of them.
The school has retained its most traditional elements, yet, at the same time, is well-prepared to respond to modern educational initiatives and be right up-to-date with new technologies. An exciting new state-of-the-art Teaching and Learning Centre was unveiled in September 2014, and it is plain to see that Hazlegrove has an exciting future.
The youngest aged for boarding is seven. Roughly 100 boarders, with a handful of international students, enjoy a busy and motivating programme of weekend and evening activities. The School was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for its boarding provision.
Continuity or choice, an outstanding scholarship record
Destination schools for leavers include Hazlegrove’s own King’s Bruton, Bryanston, Canford, Downside, Eton, Marlborough, Millfield, Sherborne, Sherborne Girls, St Mary’s Calne and Winchester.
Between 2012 and 2014, 91 scholarships and awards were gained to 19 different senior schools.
Hazlegrove’s senior school, King’s Bruton, enables pupils to continue their education to the end of sixth-form, age 18.
“The school is fortunate to have outstanding facilities and is set within 200 acres of parkland in Somerset.”
