"I was lucky enough to have been part of the initial intake that had new buildings back in the 1960s but the recent changes are fantastic and provide an outstanding learning environment for local children."
Henbury School head teacher Clare Bradford thanked Mr Rutley for the donation.
"We are already using the minibus for various student activities. It has made a tremendous difference. We are really happy to have our name emblazoned on the side and even happier to have such a successful ex-student still supporting the school."
The John Rutley Sports Fund is administered through Bristol University's Department of Sport, Exercise and Health.
The university's director of sport Simon Hinks said: "We are delighted to continue to link the university with local community projects. The Fund enables us to provide outstanding sporting opportunities for thousands of local school children and at the same time provide hundreds of volunteering hours for Bristol students."
