Bookings and Course Structure

A non-refundable deposit of £50 per child per course is to be paid on booking to secure a place on the course.

Joining instructions which contain important information regarding the course will be sent to all parents/guardians in advance of the course (approximately two weeks before the course start date).

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.

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. Bookings not paid in full at 28 days prior to the course start date will be cancelled and all fees paid retained. All fees paid will be forfeited by anyone cancelling a course within 28 days of the course start date.

The deadline for the receipt of applications is 72 hours before the applicant’s first proposed day of participation. There is no guarantee that a course can be offered after this time, therefore, please do not arrive on the first day of the course as a place may not be available.


Millfield reserves the right to withdraw any student from a course for behaviour we deem to be detrimental to the smooth-running of the course or which might interfere with the safety of any other participants on the course.

Regulations made for the safety and comfort of course members must be observed. Residential 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.

Course participants are strongly advised to take out accident/curtailment insurance. First aid cover is available throughout the course and minor analgesics (paracetamol), throat lozenges and cough linctus may be dispensed. By signing the Millfield Holiday Courses Application Form you are giving consent for this treatment if required unless written objection is received in advance. Any further treatment required will be administered by a local surgery or hospital.

Names, photographs and videos may be taken and used electronically for marketing purposes, online and/or in print. Objections will be respected - please make these in writing to the Course Co-ordinators 72 hours before the course start date.

If children wish to take photographs and videos on personal devices during the courses, they must seek permission from any other participants involved. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure that their child is aware of this.

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