Bookings and Course Structure

Shortly after submitting your application a confirmation email will be sent including a link to our course guide which contains important information. Please inform us of any changes to your email address after submitting an application form.

Millfield reserves the right to cancel the course up to 7 days before the start date due to unforeseen circumstances or if numbers enrolled have not reached the minimum requirement. A complete refund of the fee will be given or an alternative course will be offered.

The course may be cancelled at any time by Millfield if Government restrictions are imposed which make it impossible to run the course. A complete refund of the course fees will be given or a credit for a future course offered.

A non-refundable deposit of £100 per child per course is included in the course fees. In most cases, refunds will only be given in the event of the course being cancelled by Millfield. The deposit is non-refundable in all other cases once paid. Requests for refunds for courses that are cancelled by the parent/guardian cannot be guaranteed and will be dependent on the reason for cancellation – refunds are at the discretion of the Director of Enterprises and will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

Millfield reserves the right to cancel the programme at any time due to unforeseen circumstances. A complete refund of the fee will be given or a credit carried over towards future courses.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is 5pm UK time on Friday 25th February 2022. Bookings not paid in full by 5pm UK time on Friday 25th February 2022 will be cancelled and all fees paid retained. Students who submit their forms after this date will go on a waiting list and will be subject to timetabling restrictions. There is no guarantee that a course can be offered after this date.

Students will receive their timetable approximately one week before the start of the course.

Millfield will make every effort to ensure that the needs of individual students are met, however, students must be aware that a revision course cannot be expected to cover all aspects of all specifications.

Welfare

All normal term-time Millfield school rules and sanctions apply throughout this programme including those relating to mobile devise usage - all participants will be expected to abide by these rules and conduct themselves appropriately at all times. It is strictly forbidden for participants to bring drugs or alcoholic beverages onto our campuses. Drinking, smoking and vaping are strictly forbidden at all times; Millfield operates a no smoking policy on all of its campuses. Millfield reserves the right to move a participant to alternative accommodation and, in certain cases after consultation with the parent/guardian, withdraw any participant from the programme (at the parent/guardian expense) for behaviour we deem to be detrimental to the smooth-running of the programme or which might interfere with the safety of any other participants, staff and guests on campus. For Millfield students, please note that the School will be informed of any behavioural issues or any rules broken by any participants on the programme. Further disciplinary action may be taken and sanctions for any such misbehaviour will apply as they would in term time. Regulations made for the safety and comfort of course participants must be observed.

Students will reside in school boarding houses and may be required to share a bedroom and bathroom. Bed linen is provided but participants should bring their own towels and toiletries.

Millfield cannot accept responsibility for any personal loss or damage to property or any injury sustained by participants.

First aid cover is available throughout the course and minor analgesics (paracetamol), throat lozenges and cough linctus may be dispensed. You can withdraw consent for this treatment in the Student Medical Details section of the application form. Any further treatment required will be administered by a local surgery or hospital.

The use of cars is not permitted during the course. Participants who drive to the course are expected to park in the designated car park(s). If driving other participants to the course, drivers must seek permission from the parents of each passenger. Students may be expected to surrender their keys to their houseparent which will be returned at the end of their course.

Students are not permitted to leave the campus during their stay. If essential, permission must be obtained from the Director of Enterprises.

It is strictly forbidden for students to invite guests onto the Millfield campus.

First names, photographs or images (including video recordings) may be taken and used online and/or in print for use in promotional material (such as adverts and brochures), on our websites or on social media. On occasion, these may be used for press and media purposes, or for educational purposes as part of the curriculum, or extra-curricular activities. We may seek specific consent from Parents or Legal Guardians before using a photograph or video recording where we consider that the use is more privacy intrusive. Where the student is of sufficient maturity (usually when aged 12 years or older) we may seek the student’s specific prior consent (which may be obtained verbally) in addition to or instead of the Parents’ or Legal Guardian’s consent.

If students wish to take photographs and videos on personal devices during the programme, they must seek permission from staff and any other participants involved. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their child is aware of this. Under no circumstances should any photos and videos be taken in any toilets or changing facilities.

Millfield and Millfield Prep are non-smoking and non-vaping campuses, therefore smoking/vaping is strictly prohibited.
