Millfield School is a co-educational independent day and boarding school. It was founded by RJO (Jack) Meyer in 1935, following his return from India with seven Indian boys, six of whom were princes. 


The school became one of the first independent co-educational schools in 1939. By the late 60s, a much larger proportion of pupils, including a large number of girls, were applying for entry in Millfield Senior School instead of other public schools. This required expansion in facilities. In the 1980s the Edgarley campus emerged, a site now occupied by the Pre-Prep School and Prep School.


Today, Millfield School, along with the Prep School, educates approximately 1700 pupils and employs around 600 staff members, whilst preserving the philosophy from the early days: to help every individual child achieve their full potential.


In Years 6-8, children are taught by specialist subject teachers and class-based tutors. The programme includes English and maths as central to the curriculum. Pupils also study physics, chemistry, biology, humanities, religious studies, art, food technology, design and technology and computing & ICT. Language options include French, Spanish and Latin.


Co-curricular activities are tailored to each individual and aim to prepare children for continuous involvement in sport and music, whilst promoting confidence, creativity and wellbeing. They include Archery, Sailing, Shooting, Riding, Skateboarding, Squash and Chess. Music clubs offer lessons in Theory, Choirs & Ensembles; Percussion; Rock Band, Jazz Band & Guitar.


Millfield School endorses philanthropy and is a registered charity which, through the Development office, uses donations to make a positive and lasting impact on the futures of pupils and the Millfield community as a whole.


The Sir Gareth Edwards Scholarship Fund aims to establish a rugby scholarship that will enable talented, young players to attend Millfield School and experience the same life-changing education which Sir Gareth received.


The RJOM scholarship is a special award, commenced in September 2019, with the purpose of providing scholarships for the children and grandchildren of Old Millfieldians. Many generous Old Millfieldians give £10 or more each month to this cause.
