Millfield Prep Campus, 6-11 years

Millfield Prep School is located on the outskirts of Glastonbury at the foot of the National Trust monument, Glastonbury Tor, ideally suited to the needs of younger children offering superb accommodation, round the clock supervision with a staff-student ration of 1:5 and excellent facilities.

The School became the 'Junior School' for Millfield in 1945 when Jack Meyer, realising the need to accommodate increasing numbers of younger pupils arriving at his school in Street, bought the house and grounds from his friends the Thomas-Ferrands.

It was originally part of an iron-age settlement around Glastonbury Tor, then in post-Roman times the property of a local British chieftain who later gave way to Saxon invaders. In the late 7th century the land was granted to the Abbey by a Saxon chieftain, thereby becoming one of the so-called Glaston XII hides.

The full address for Millfield Preparatory School is Edgarley Hall, Glastonbury, Somerset, BA6 8LD. Please click here to view the exact location on a map.
