Who can take part?
Millfield runs a wealth of outdoor activities, available to every pupil. These are not only an exciting means to develop fitness and stamina, but also help build mental strength and perseverance – all qualities that are of huge importance throughout adult life. Most importantly however is that pupils come away with achievements, satisfaction, confidence, and a real love for 'The Great Outdoors’.
Our 21 staff provide an exceptional support base for pupils looking to explore new areas of interest, or develop current skills. Between our dedicated coaches we run courses in:
• Ten Tors
• The Duke of Edinburgh's Award
Weekly trips within the South West are a feature of the term. Expeditions mainly take place out of term time to provide pupils with extended periods of challenge and enjoyment. Recent trips have included a three week expedition to Tanzania (Kilimanjaro), Morocco (Gold DofE), Climbing in Calpe and Mountaineering in Switzerland.
