Our outstanding flexi-boarding or occasional boarding are both options available to parents of children in Years 3 to 8 during term time, providing space is available in the boarding houses.


From two nights per week, booked termly in advance, your child is guaranteed a cosy bed and quality time spent with their boarding friends. This could be of benefit for pupils with early morning clubs, for busy parents or as a way to build up to full boarding. After school, they are able to enjoy evenings in with other children and house staff. If needed, they can be supervised during prep, enjoy quiet reading or have fun in the games room and grounds.

Flexi-boarding has helped our daughter settle into Millfield Prep very quickly.  She has made so many friends! We would highly recommend the flexi-boarding option, as not only does our daughter love it, it gives us a break from the school runs and late pick ups. It’s a win win!

Occasional Boarding

There may be times when unexpected work, family or school commitments create logistical challenges. You are welcome to book a boarding place on an occasional basis, if space permits. Please note that the same bed in the same house is not guaranteed for each subsequent stay.
