Introduction to the Gallery
The Atkinson Gallery at Millfield
“While most school children learn about art from books and slide projections or the occasional trip to a museum, Millfield pupils have the real thing on the premises.”
As part of our commitment to the Arts, Millfield School is lucky to have its very own gallery on site. The Atkinson Gallery was opened in 1992 by Shirley Atkinson, wife of CRM Atkinson CBE, who was Headmaster and Principal at Millfield from 1970 to 1990.
The Atkinson Gallery is nationally recognised and holds major contemporary exhibitions which are open to both our students and the general public. It aims to support young aspiring artists and bring high calibre, international art to the South West region.
