Headmistress' Welcome

As a parent and Head, I am adamant that the Millfield Prep School experience is exceptional and provides our children with a vast array of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Pastoral care and nurturing is high on our agenda and we very much encourage children to be kind, considerate and mindful of the needs of others. We believe that when children feel happy and supported they can grow in self esteem and confidence and then the sky is the limit.

Our strength has always been based around the belief that every child is an individual and our school aims to put the child at the heart of everything it does.
