Health & Welfare



Millfield provides healthy, nutritious and appetising food for pupils and staff to enjoy together. The needs and tastes of every pupil differ and our breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are designed to accommodate this.

We provide a variety of great food choices for students to try, with a combination of international dishes and great British classics such as Brunch, Friday chippy tea, and traditional Sunday Roast. Each meal time there is a choice of different healthy food options. Special dietary requirements are also catered for, including religious persuasions and lifestyle preferences. Students can eat as much as they like and are encouraged to try different foods to promote a healthy and balanced diet. 

Most meals are served in the dining hall on campus, where staff and students will eat together. At breakfast we offer a choice of cooked food, cereals, toast and fruit. At lunch and dinner we offer both hot food and salads. Vegetarian and vegan options are available at all meals. Packed lunches are provided on excursions and occasionally dinner will be a special outdoor event, offering things like an asado pit or barbecues. 

Refreshments are provided in the morning ‘Happening’ and in the afternoon break consisting of whole fruits and a daily traditional English snack. Drinks and basic snacks are provided in the boarding houses for the evenings.


Students are supervised 24 hours a day and student health or welfare problems are spotted quickly and dealt with promptly by staff, who have a qualification in Safeguarding.

Each student will get two personal laundry washes a week. 

We have Medical Centres on our campuses and Millfield provides a basic insurance policy for all students. 

Please note, we advise you to check exactly what our insurance policy covers. If you require further cover, please obtain alternative insurance.


In order to provide 24-hour supervision members of staff are accommodated in the same houses as the students. Each house has a Houseparent and Assistant Houseparent who are responsible for the running of the house and the health and welfare of the students living there. 

The Houseparent and Assistant are responsible for the safekeeping of the students’ passports, travel documents and pocket money, which will be stored in a combination safe. Pocket money is properly recorded on an account sheet and students can make withdrawals at set times. 

The boarding houses are separated by gender and age, but mixed by nationality. 

At Street Campus, some rooms are single with an en-suite, while others are single, 2-bedded or triple bedded rooms with shared bathrooms. 

If students coming to the courses together wish to share a room we will do our best to arrange this providing we are informed prior to arrival and the students are of a similar age. Please note that room requests are subject to availability and suitability and cannot be guaranteed. 

Facilities include a common room with TV and DVD player, a recreational area, and a kitchen with tea/coffee making facilities, snacks and cold drinks.

Please note that facilities may differ for each house.
