Why choose Millfield?
Millfield School is one of the UK's leading co-educational independent schools. It is a centre of excellence for academic study, sport and the Arts, and we believe in providing a fully rounded education for our students.

By providing young people with diverse experiences and opportunities, we not only help build their confidence and maturity, but enable them to grow into thoughtful, flexible and resilient young adults capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st century.

Millfield's size (we have approximately 1200 pupils) is our strength as it enables us to offer a diverse range of activities and outstanding facilities. Whilst a large school can at first glance feel daunting, we ensure that each student receives a tailored programme and this is achieved by the creation of small units of teaching and tutor provision. The average number of pupils in a class and in a house tutor group is twelve and similar small sizes apply to the variety of sports, clubs and activities on offer to pupils.

3. International pupils

Millfield is extremely proud of its international character. We embrace pupils from all countries and believe that the rich cultural diversity of over 200 overseas pupils and approximately 50 different nationalities provides a great opportunity for pupils and staff alike to learn about cultural differences.

We aim to promote inter-cultural awareness and understanding. We are sensitive to the special challenges faced by youngsters arriving for the first time in a new school in a foreign land where they are expected to operate in a second language.

King's Bruton Senior Campus, 14-17 years is set in stunningly beautiful surroundings deep in a tranquil Somerset valley, yet not far from Bath and only two hours from London.

By 1900 the School was still small, working in just two buildings – Old House and New House, built in 1872. Notable developments since then have included the Memorial Buildings, five more boarding houses, a new dining hall, the Fitzjames Theatre, a sports hall, a design centre, and the Hobhouse Science Centre. So there has been much change since the School was founded nearly five centuries ago, and the Founders' original avowed aim of producing 'perfight latyn men' has been greatly modified to suit 21st Century needs.

King's Bruton Senior Campus is a beautiful campus with historic English charm and a proud heritage but with modern facilities in a safe environment which is ideally suited for senior students.
