Our Campuses

Building for our future

Great schools continuously evolve. Millfield's outstanding facilities create two extraordinary campuses which have inspired generations of students to immerse themselves in academic study, culture and sport to express their intellectual, creative and physical potential. Maintaining this calibre of learning environment has been achieved through the school's continued and significant capital investment, alongside generous donations from the wider Millfield community.

Millfield's vision for campus development is summarised in Millfield 2035, the school's campus masterplan which identifies future needs and priortises campus developments. The key themes for development are:

  1. To deliver 21st century Teaching and Learning spaces underpinned by 21st century ICT infrastructure 
  2. To enhance and develop high quality boarding and day student accommodation
  3. To provide on campus staff housing that further develops Millfield as a learning community
  4. To reinforce Millfield sports facilities as the benchmark for the independent sector
  5. To maximise energy efficiencies in all physical development projects and construction techniques
  6. To enhance the general infrastructure to facilitate efficient parking, controlled entry and exit routes and roads

The latest addition to our facilities are the new indoor cricket and golf centres, with world-leading technology, including through motion tracking and simulation software, placing Millfield at the forefront of school and university facilities for both sports.
