About Mill Hill County High School

About Us

The School was founded in 1985 with the amalgamation of 3 former schools.  It has created a forward-looking curriculum which  "provides superbly" for the needs of students, according to Ofsted. 

Secondary  education in Barnet is provided by fully selective schools, single sex  schools, schools with religious affiliations and non-denominational  comprehensive schools, such as our own; in order  to maintain a balanced intake and in line with our specialisms, we  allocate 10% of places on the basis of technological aptitude, 10% on  musical aptitude and 5% on dance aptitude.

The  School is highly traditional in its approach to student behaviour and  attitudes. Students are expected to wear our distinctive uniform in a  conventional manner, i.e. with collars buttoned, shirts  tucked in etc. While all members of the School community are expected  to behave respectfully to one another, there is an explicit expectation  that students will respect their elders, maintaining a wholly courteous  manner towards teaching and support staff,  adult visitors and members of the general public. In classes, every  student is expected to be trying to be a pleasure to teach. 

In  contrast to the nationwide decrease in levels of extracurricular  activity and school trips, the staff of Mill Hill County High School  place great value upon the learning experiences which can be  provided by sports teams, musical ensembles, dramatic and dance  productions, clubs of every sort and educational visits. The School’s  extracurricular programme is exceptional and represents a vast amount of  voluntary effort on the part of staff; students are  expected to avail themselves of appropriate opportunities and to learn  the virtues of loyalty and faithfulness. 

Our Facilities

The  School has excellent facilities accommodated in buildings of varying  age and quality, laid out in a rather complicated manner.

The  oldest buildings were opened in 1957 on a spacious 21 acre site, with  extensive playing fields, on the edge of the Green Belt. Additions and  improvements have been made as follows: a purpose built  Sixth Form Centre (1993); a major refurbishment of the Technology  Centre (1993); the Fey Centre for IT (1995); the Weston Centre for Media  (1996); a £1.2m suite of rooms accommodating art and 4 science  laboratories (1999); a £3m extension accommodating English,  Music, Dance/Drama teaching rooms and a splendid new library (2003), a new 7 room maths block (2015) and a new  extension in 2019 providing 5 History classrooms, a Sociology room and a  new Dance studio.  In addition, in 2019, a new sixth form study area  has also been opened.
