We run two very successful ski teams; one male and one female. Consistent performances in National Schools’ Championships prove how Millfield ranks as one of the best schools for Ski instruction and development on the British Isles. Training and conditioning is tailored to each pupil, allowing them to improve at a pace and style that they enjoy.

Typically we spend the autumn term training and competing on artificial slopes. At the beginning of December we have our race camp in Tignes France, where the squad is trained by British Ski Academy coaches. This camp includes training Giant Slalom, Slalom and Freestyle, with races and competitions at the end of the week. The squad attends three competitions in the spring term; the British Schoolgirls and Schoolboys races in France and Switzerland, and the British Interschools Ski Challenge in France. Wherever possible, we also support racers who attend FIS and other ski races during school time.

In recent years we have won National Schools' Championships on the artificial slopes circuits and also British international schools' races in the Alps. Year 11 pupil James Whitley competed as part of Team GB in the Winter Olympics this year in Sochi.
