Military Families

At Millfield and Millfield Prep, we offer Military families a 15% Forces concession, in addition to Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA). 

We recognise that military life can often cause upheaval for children and that a good, consistent and stable education is important to military families. With Millfield being a full boarding school of 950 students, including 250 British expats, and Millfield Prep having 130 full-time boarders, we offer an outstanding education, unrivalled co-curricular programmes and a home from home environment. We ensure, through our excellent pastoral system, that students settle in well and very quickly adapt to boarding life. All of our boarders (around 75% of students at Millfield) are full boarders, who live at school seven days a week, so there is a vibrant weekend programme of activities for them to enjoy.

The quality of the catering and boarding houses at Millfield and Millfield Prep have been recognised by The Good Schools Guide as impressive, and with years of experience of caring for UK and international students, our school is popular with Military families.

Situated in 300 acres of grounds, Millfield is a vibrant community, offering world-class facilities, pioneering learning support and an excellent staff to student ratio that ensures every child gets individual attention. 

There are so many opportunities for your child to learn new skills, grow and develop. The school competes in Regional and National competitions in many different academic and sporting events. Our superb facilities include equestrian centres, music schools, 25m and 50m swimming pools, golf courses, and an indoor tennis centre.
