Somerset Boarding School
Are you searching for international boarding schools for girls and boys? Millfield School in Street, Somerset is one of the UK's leading co-educational independent schools. It is a centre of excellence for academic study, sport and the Arts, and we believe in providing a fully rounded education for our students.
This international boarding school has a long tradition of welcoming pupils from around the world. Currently, 20% of our pupils are international and comprise over 70 nationalities. International pupils are fully integrated into all aspects of school life and bring diversity to the Millfield community.
We have a special interest in the pastoral care of all overseas pupils and we aim to help them settle happily and smoothly into their new environment. When a new pupil arrives, they are warmly welcomed to the school routine, which may at first feel unfamiliar to them. If English is not the child’s first language, the EAL (English as an Additional Language) department is here to help. Our specialist staff provide English language tuition in small groups, allowing pupils time to acquire English language skills at their own pace, until they are confident enough to move into their subject lesson.
English and Mathematics are central to the curriculum. Pupils also study Physics, Chemistry and Biology (as separate sciences), History, Geography, Religious Studies, Design and Technology, Food Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Art, Music, Drama and Physical Education. They may also study French, Spanish and Latin. All Year 9 pupils at this top UK boarding school follow a broad and balanced curriculum designed to keep their options open and develop the essential skills that they need to learn and progress. As pupils move into Year 10 and through to Year 11 the core (or compulsory) curriculum is slimmed down and pupils are offered greater choice in the subjects that they study. GCSE English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics are core (or compulsory) subjects for all pupils. A Modern Foreign Language is also included as a core subject for most pupils. Beyond the core element of the curriculum, a wide range of option subjects are available. The subject combinations that we are able to offer are based upon our own research and our experience of the sorts of subject combinations which Millfield pupils traditionally choose 3 or more A grades.
