Headmaster's Welcome

Millfield Prep School is an extraordinary place and provides children with exceptional, unparalleled opportunities. Whatever their passions, pupils can find something to fully immerse themselves in.

Not only is every child seen and known as an individual, but Millfield also firmly believes that every child is brilliant – and it is our mission to help them discover their brilliance and then nurture it to the full. 

Outstanding pastoral care is at the core of everything. Kindness and consideration of others is central to all that we are and all that we do. Happy children thrive and succeed; and Millfield is full of success stories! I look forward to arriving at Millfield Prep in January 2022 when I'll take on the role from Millfield Headmaster Gavin Horgan.
