Education has always been a matter of serious debate but discussion has never been more intense than during the present era. The modern world is highly competitive and the way we prepare our children for its demands is more important than ever. Young people today are subject to great pressures and it takes strong personalities to avoid the traps that life has lying in wait. Hence a good school must seek to develop confidence and maturity in all its pupils whatever their strengths and weaknesses.
All individuals have different needs and therefore a variety of opportunities must be available to enable each one to achieve success. They must learn to apply themselves to academic work but must also be encouraged to express their other talents. With its outstanding facilities, a staff:pupil ratio of 1:6.5, an extraordinary range of academic courses and the unrivalled strength of its co-curricular programme, Millfield strives to achieve all these aims. It also seeks to move with the times whilst maintaining the important traditions of good manners, discipline and respect for others. We pride ourselves on the richness and diversity of the Millfield experience as well as the friendly atmosphere within our community. We try to ensure that Millfieldians will look back on their school days with genuine affection.
