About Us

Founded in 1945, Millfield Prep School offers an exceptional, all-round educational experience that puts the individual at the centre.

Nestled in the beautiful Somerset countryside, under the stunning Glastonbury Tor, Millfield Prep provides the ideal environment in which to grow up, foster a love of learning and create lifelong childhood memories.

Our fundamental belief is that every child is unique and that they all have their own special talents which they enjoy and excel at, and the school’s outstanding facilities and teaching provision help immerse pupils in limitless opportunities.

Our focus is teaching pupils a broad, balanced and individually tailored programme, combining an outstanding academic curriculum, with health and wellbeing through involvement in sport and physical activity.

Millfield Prep’s outstanding facilities allow pupils to excel. Whether it’s swimming in our 25m indoor heated swimming pool, performing experiments in our science labs, trying golf on our 9 or 18 hole golf courses, playing at a concert in the Recital Hall or horse riding in our fantastic equestrian centre, we provide opportunities in a wide variety of fields.

At Millfield Prep, there truly is something for everyone and a chance for each pupil to discover their brilliance.
