The school has in its 80 year history achieved significant growth. Established in 1935 by Jack ‘Boss’ Meyer with six princes from India, today it is an international, multi-faith school welcoming young people from all backgrounds and over 70 nationalities.

Millfield may be one of the bigger independent schools, but its ethos remains to discover and develop the potential of every pupil. The school has been structured to make sure it is friendly, approachable and focused on the unique needs of each individual.

Millfield provides a broad and balanced education which not only prepares pupils for public examinations but also gives them the confidence to achieve success throughout their adult lives. The school offers an exceptionally wide range of courses whilst still allowing pupils' programmes to be tailored to individual needs. At GCSE 28 subjects are on offer and 40 subjects at AS/A2 Level. An exciting range of vocational courses are also available in the Sixth Form, including BTECs and the Leiths Basic Certificate.

Innovation remains at the heart of the school with a commitment to continually refine how to offer an exceptional, fully rounded education. Recent examples of this include the launch of Nine at Millfield, a dynamic Year 9 programme, and the use of pupil iPads to promote digital learning.
