Head PhotoThe Millfield story bears testament to this ethos. Established in 1935 by 'Boss' Meyer with six princes from India, the school has evolved to become one of the largest co-educational boarding and day schools in the UK with over 1200 pupils, 75% of whom are full boarders. To achieve this growth - from a small rural school to an international, multi-faith school welcoming young people from all backgrounds and over 65 nationalities - took vision, determination and positivity. These are characteristics we continue to nurture and encourage in our pupils.

We know that size brings opportunity. Quite simply, the breadth and depth of our offer is unmatched anywhere else in the UK: an Olympic-sized swimming pool, golf course and equestrian centre; a wonderful concert hall, theatre, art gallery and music centre; a spacious dining room and hi-tech chemistry block. From theatre, art and fashion to business, sport and science, we enable our pupils to follow their passions, all supported by expert teaching.

We may be one of the bigger independent schools, but we never lose sight of each individual. We have carefully structured Millfield to make sure it is friendly, approachable and focused on the unique needs of every pupil. Once your child has found their passion, we tailor an education programme that is right for them. With a ratio of 1 staff member to every 6.5 children, each individual pupil has the support they need, wherever their talents may lie.

We are proud to be an innovator and are always refining how to offer an exceptional, fully rounded education. In many respects, we are continually learning ourselves, drawing inspiration and ideas from other fields of expertise to prepare our pupils for the future. Examples of this include the launch of Nine at Millfield, a dynamic and diverse programme designed to help 13-14 year olds flourish, and the use of pupil iPads to promote digital learning.
