Our aim is discover brilliance in every child and to immerse them in academic, creative and sporting opportunities to develop this brilliance. We offer an exceptionally wide range of courses and provide multiple pathways through the school to meet the needs of the individual child. Courses range from the traditional academic route to vocational courses and BTEC. The curriculum is meticulously crafted to lead students through from the end of year 8 to the start of university life or the first steps of a career.
Our teachers are passionate about education and are dedicated learners themselves. We want to instil a love of learning and nurture natural curiosities. We aim to provide a first-class education within the framework of the values that shape the school: be kind, be authentic, be curious, be disruptors, be brilliant.
Millfield has the resource and attitude to bring together key staff to provide an education and experience that honours the individual child. With small class sizes, sophisticated use of digital technology, excellent teachers and expert sports coaches, every student is individually supported to discover their own brilliance.
