Millfield is proud to be the only school in the UK to offer training in all three fencing weapons to both sexes at the highest levels. Fencing is the fourth sport to have been given an Academy status at the school and is available to every student as a games option, irrespective of their age or skill, and offered as a sport option in Year 9.

Our six coaches provide all-round support, designed to help each student reach their potential. The purpose-built Fencing Salle contains ten training pistes each served with full electronic data recording equipment.

The Fencing Academy includes a comprehensive programme of squad sessions covering all weapons, timetabled lessons, personal competition plans and individual monitoring. We strive to provide both junior and senior pupils valuable competition experience, entering a number of home and abroad tournaments. These range from the Leon Paul Junior Series to World Cup and Grand Prix events.

Millfield has had over 70 students awarded international honours at all levels and last year retained the Overall Public Schools Championships Crown for a record ninth consecutive year.
