Here at Millfield we were well equipped to roll out remote learning for our students at relatively short notice. We have been using iPads for many years and we already had provisions in place to facilitate effective remote teaching and learning. Millfield is a leader in using technology in the classroom, on the sports field and in our co-curricular programmes and we continuously innovate to deliver the most effective provision and learning experiences.  Alongside our academic study, fitness and conditioning programmes, coaching services and seamless pastoral care are available for students, staff and members of the Millfield community alike wherever they are learning in the world.
