Admissions (ages 7-13)

Entry to Millfield Prep is possible into all year groups, with the largest intake at Year 7. We will consider entry in January and April, as well as in September.

If you would like to consider a place at Millfield Prep School for your child, the first thing to do is to come and visit us. We would be delighted to give you a tour of the school and if you think your child would enjoy Millfield, you can formally apply for a place by completing the Registration Form.

We will then request a reference from your current school and on receipt of a satisfactory report invite you to bring your child for interview and assessment. If they would like to spend the day with us, they would be most welcome. We would then formally offer a place and the return of the Acceptance Form and Fee completes the entry procedure.

You may, of course, enter your child for future years but we would not normally complete the paperwork until the year preceding admission. Most children transfer to Millfield, subject to a satisfactory final report from the Headmistress.
