Millfield has a long tradition of welcoming pupils from around the world. Currently, 20% of our pupils are international and comprise over 70 nationalities. International pupils are fully integrated into all aspects of school life and bring diversity to the Millfield community.

We have a special interest in the pastoral care of all overseas pupils and we aim to help them settle happily and smoothly into their new environment. When a new pupil arrives, they are warmly welcomed to the school routine, which may at first feel unfamiliar to them. If English is not the child’s first language, the EAL (English as an Additional Language) department is here to help. Our specialist staff provide English language tuition in small groups, allowing pupils time to acquire English language skills at their own pace, until they are confident enough to move into their subject lesson. 

Millfield Prep offers a unique English Language Programme for non-English speaking international pupils aged between 7 and 13.  

Our Admissions team are regularly overseas meeting with prospective families and their children. See International Recruitment Events for details of upcoming visits.
