About us

Welcome to Sexey’s School, Bruton! Established in 1891, we are a Church of England, non-selective state boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 11-18, based in the beautiful Somerset countryside. We are part of Quantock Education Trust.

We are ambitious for our students’ academic achievement and provide an inclusive, friendly environment — producing confident young people that are prepared for life, both today and beyond school.  We have a passion and determination to be exceptional in all that we do. At the centre of the school’s ethos you will find our Christian values.stained glass window of a cross from Sexey's Sanctuary

We have 7 Core values that form the basis of our ethos.  These are the building blocks of our individual character and through these we grow and develop as individuals and as a community:

  • Courage
  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Forgiveness
  • Empathy
  • Honesty
  • Resilience


Choosing a school – the right school, is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child.

Parents often ask us what is so special about Sexey’s and what makes it different from other schools. Our reply is that we view every student as unique; valued as an individual, but also part of a family. We are very much a family school, educating brothers and sisters from Year 7 through to Sixth Form. It is our belief that every young person has a personal talent that it is our responsibility to help discover, nurture and develop.

Success for the future

School days have a powerful influence on future success in life and we believe a Sexey’s education can give you the best start.

Our students not only achieve excellent academic qualifications, but they also enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities and receive outstanding pastoral care. However successful you are in life, to be truly happy and fulfilled you need to have successful relationships with others. We provide our students with the knowledge, skills, experiences and confidence to allow them to be truly successful on their journey of lifelong learning

A website can only give you a brief glimpse of school life. You are warmly invited to visit and experience for yourself what we believe to be a very special school. We look forward to meeting you soon.
