Our next Open Day is taking place on Saturday 27 February 2020 and this will be a virtual open day due to COVID-19 during which you can join us remotely on a webinar, see a presentation by the Headmistress and ask questions of key staff. There will also be a variety of information including videos and blogs on our open day website page for you to peruse.
Our on campus open mornings, which we hope to offer again as soon as is possible, include a welcome by the Headmistress and pupil led tours around the campus, followed by lunch and a chance to meet staff. Throughout the afternoon, you are welcome to watch sport/activities at your leisure.
Book an individual visit or Skype meeting
We offer individual school tours during term time and holidays, and taster days for prospective pupils. We are currently offering parent meetings via Skype.
If you wish to book a meeting please contact us on 01458 832446.
After receiving a reference from your child's current school we will contact you to arrange a time for your child to attend for interview and assessment. These are currently being carried out via Skype.
All pupils joining Millfield Prep have an entrance interview with the Head of Year or Tutor for Admissions. This will last around 15 minutes and centre on the academic interests of the candidate, their extra-curricular activities and experiences.
Following interview candidates will sit a 60 minute computer based verbal and non-verbal reasoning assessment. Pupils who require learning support will meet the Head of the Learning Development Centre for their assessment. Boarding pupils will have the opportunity to meet Houseparents. During COVID-19 candidates will usually sit English and Mathematics papers and these will be administered by the Admissions team via Skype.
Joining instructions and house placement information
In the term before entry, usually by the end of May, we will send the full Joining Instructions containing detailed information, including House placements and links to forms that will require completing and returning. House allocations will usually be sent by the end of June.
