Millfield's philosophy has always been to help every individual to achieve their full potential by attempting to discover and nurture whatever talent a young person has, and to prepare them for life ahead. Millfield believes that education is concerned with the whole human being,and that every pupil has the ability to achieve something worthwhile in some area. Therefore, Millfield is well known for its outstanding sporting achievements, but also has extremely high standards in academic subjects, music and the arts.
Millfield is aided in its aspirations by world class facilities, which include an indoor Tennis Centre, Equestrian Centre, Fine Arts Centre, Concert Hall, 50m Swimming Pool, Athletics Track, and three Olympic-quality water-based Astro turfs.
Small class sizes have always been a vital part of the Millfield philosophy.
Millfield offers a wide range of subjects at GCSE level, and offers a choice of 41 different subjects at AS/A2 Level, including eight different languages, as well as a selection of vocational courses. Over 200 sixth formers go on to university each year.
The happiness and well-being of our pupils is a high priority. Each pupil belongs to a house which provides the secure base on which he or she can build emotional stability and self-confidence. Day pupils and boarders from a variety of different countries, cultures and religions come together to form the School's rich and diverse community. They are all supported by a comprehensive network of Group Tutors, Heads of Year and Houseparents, who are responsible for each pupil's welfare.
