Millfield School in Street, Somerset is working with the District and Parish Council, The Salvation Army, Crispin Hall and the Community Centre on a number of initiatives to help the local community during the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Millfield Foundation exists to raise and manage funds for scholarships, bursaries, building and facility projects. The aim is to build a substantial endowment fund that will provide a source of capital to support the school's mission and secure its future. One of the best ways to support Millfield long-term is to set up a regular direct debit. Small monthly amounts quickly build up to substantial figures and we are incredibly grateful to those who already support the school.

The RJOM Scholarship
The RJOM (Rollo John Oliver Meyer) is a special award, set up in tribute to Millfield's founder 'Boss' Meyer at his funeral (15 March 1905 – 9 March 1991). Its purpose is to provide scholarships for the children and grandchildren of Old Millfieldians to study at Millfield.
Watch the BBC documentary below called 'At A Time Like This' to see a snapshot of what Millfield was like in 1967 when Boss Meyer was Headmaster.
The Johnson Scholarship Fund
“Being Head of Millfield (1998-2008) was the most rewarding time of my professional life and I regard it as a great privilege to lead a campaign to establish a Johnson Scholarship Fund. My aim is to involve members of the Millfield community who would be willing to give, preferably through an affordable monthly direct debit, to change the lives of deserving students who could not come to Millfield without substantial financial support. I know that any contributions will be hugely appreciated by the many young people who will benefit in the coming years.”
Awards will be given to Sixth Form academic candidates with other talents (music, art or sport) who will give as much to the school community as possible. Please use the links on the right hand side to make a single donation or to set up a direct debit to support The Johnson Scholarship Fund.
The Sir Gareth Edwards Scholarship fund
A campaign to establish a rugby scholarship at Millfield which will last for many generations to come. This will enable talented, young players to attend Millfield and experience the same life changing education and opportunities which Sir Gareth received. Donations at all levels are vital in helping us establish this award.
