What the school says...
Millfield Preparatory Schools strength lies in the belief that every child is an individual and to put the child at the heart of everything we do. To discover and develop the talents and abilities of each child has always been the Millfield vision and with world class resources and facilities every child has the maximum opportunity at Millfield to find their strengths and aim for excellence.
The school has a friendly and caring atmosphere where pastoral care is high on the agenda. We believe that happy and contented children will have the confidence to take on any challenge. We do encourage our children to be active and to be thoughtful, considerate and mindful of the needs of others.

They enjoy school life and the experience of being part of such a vibrant community and they go on to exceed their expectations. ...Read more
