Millfield business studies teacher Hilary Shergold has won a lifetime achievement award for her services to teaching.
Millfield provides a broad and balanced education which not only prepares students for public examinations but also gives them the confidence to achieve success throughout their adult lives. We believe that education should open doors, not close them by premature specialisation, and up to the age of 16 every student receives a rounded education in both Arts and Sciences.
Millfield offers an exceptionally wide range of courses which underpin the school's curriculum whilst still allowing students' programmes to be tailored to individual needs. An exciting range of vocational courses are also available in the Sixth Form, including BTECs and the Leiths Introductory Certificate.
Students are taught in small sets, made possible by our high staff to student ratio. Up to GCSE (or equivalent level), in order for every student to access an appropriate curriculum and make good progress, classes are banded by general ability and additional streaming takes place in English, Mathematics, Science and Languages.
Millfield students have scored highly in the spring American University application SAT exams.
The exams, which were held at Millfield in March, test students on their aptitude in reading, writing and mathematics, and are an essential component of admissions evaluation for competitive places at top universities in the United States.
Following a highly competitive application process, including entrance exams and interviews, Upper Sixth students Ella Gambold, Rozalia Moore and Harriet Woodland-Broome have all received offers to study medicine from September.
Following its inauguration in 2019, and a two-year hiatus as a result of Covid 19, Millfield celebrated its second ever ‘Chinese Food Day’ this year. The event, designed to immerse students within Chinese culture, saw over 100 students and staff take part in two mornings of food-making and tasting.
Upper Sixth Millfield students have signed to attend top US Universities next year on highly competitive scholarships.
Dewi John, Harry Barton, Ines Braithwaite, Lily Thomas, Tottie Taylor and Wyatt Walsh were amongst the latest group of students who have signed to attend prestigious universities in the United States.
