The boarding fee includes all of the above plus breakfast, three-course supper, healthcare and laundry.
Scholarships & Bursaries
We award a number of Academic, Art, Chess, Music and Sports Scholarships each year for entry into Years 6, 7 and 8. We also welcome applications for scholarships from good all-rounders; boys and girls who have reached a good standard academically and show promise in specific areas such as Art, Music or Sport.
Scholarships may be honorary or carry a fee reduction of up to 15%. If a scholarship has been awarded, parents in genuine financial need can also apply for a means-tested bursary.
A small number of Headmistress' Scholarships of up to 50% are also available in recognition of exceptional excellence in a particular area or areas, to include academic ability.
Millfield Prep scholarship examinations for 2017 entry will be held on Friday 20 January 2017. All candidates sit academic tests in the morning and then may spend the afternoon with the sports or music department, depending where their talents lie. Lunch is provided and tours of both the Prep School and the Senior School are offered.

Entry to Millfield Prep is possible into all year groups, with the largest intake at Year 7. We will consider entry in January and April, as well as in September.
If you would like to consider a place at Millfield Prep School for your child, the first thing to do is to come and visit us. We would be delighted to give you a tour of the school and if you think your child would enjoy Millfield, you can formally apply for a place by returning the completed Registration Form and Fee.
We will then request a reference from your current school and on receipt of this, invite you to bring your child for interview and assessment. If they would like to spend the day with us, they would be most welcome. We would then formally offer a place and the return of the Acceptance Form and Fee completes the entry procedure.
You may, of course, enter your child for future years but we would not normally complete the paperwork until the year preceding admission. Most children transfer to Millfield, subject to a satisfactory final report from the Headmistress.
