Donor Recognition

Donors have had a profound impact on our school throughout its history and we appreciate that each of these gifts are intended to support and develop the opportunities we can offer pupils. With this in mind our Donor Recognition programme aims to express our gratitude and demonstrate how our pupils seize the opportunities which you have contributed towards.

We offer some modest gestures of our appreciation, such as:

  • An invitation to a range of selected events where we reserve seats specifically for our donors

  • A copy book ‘Millfield: A school for all seasons’ by Christopher Martin (Headmaster 1990 – 1998)

  • Our Headmaster extends his gratitude to our donors by hosting a supper in the spring of each year

  • Many facilities which have been donated as well as scholarships are highlighted to our staff and pupils on this site and at school where we educate the community about our supporters

  • We invite you to visit us on campus where donors are welcomed and shown around our facilities including being hosted for lunch or supper in our fantastic dining hall

The 1935 Society – legacies

How to support — through a legacy

If you tell us that you plan to make a bequest to Millfield and do not request anonymity, you will automatically become a member of the 1935 Society. This will enable Millfield to thank you for your affection for the school, to keep you up to date with our current plans and to listen to your views.

Free benefits of the Society include:

  • An opportunity to make a recorded video message which will contribute to the school archive and add context to your gift

  • Reserved seats for you and your guest at the school choir service in Wells Cathedral followed by lunch

  • Free copies of your school photos - where available

  • Free access to our school concerts - where available

  • An invitation to make arranged visits to the school campus, our boarding houses and our dining hall for lunch

  • A special silver legacies Windmill badge
