Discover Brilliance

Explore Our Purpose


Millfield is one of the leading UK independent schools for boys and girls, aged 2-18 years. Millfield is not like other schools and never has been. We believe in shaping the school around the child, where excellence in teaching and coaching comes together with the child at the centre. Our aim is that each individual will discover their own brilliance.

Why Millfield?

Millfield Life

We have so much happening at Millfield and Millfield Prep to tell you about. Keep up to date with our news, events and blog.

Millfield and Millfield Prep are distinctively different. We encourage our children and young adults to be kind, to challenge, to question, to be positive influencers and to have a voice. Our aim is that each individual will discover their own brilliance. We have the resource, the attitude and the capacity to lead the way and define education in the UK, now and in the future.
