Millfield House holds a special place in the history of Millfield; being where the school began in 1935 when it was founded by 'Boss' Meyer. In 1926 Boss Meyer had accepted employment at both Harrow and Eton before choosing instead to play cricket in India. He returned nearly ten years later with seven pupils and started teaching in what is now our house study. The house retains many of the original features but now provides accommodation for up to 28 boys in dorm rooms sleeping one to five.
The house has a very homely feel and the boys have access to a well-equipped common room with a widescreen TV, a luxurious pool table, table football and table tennis. The boys have access to the pitch and putt golf course right outside the house and that makes a great location for house barbeques in the summer months. Millfield House really is in the heart of the campus and the boys are encouraged to make use of the fantastic facilities on their doorstep!
Having spent three years as Assistant Houseparents at St. Anne’s, Alex Kemp became Millfield House Housemaster in September 2016. Alex grew up in Pembrokeshire and completed his degree and teacher training in Cardiff before moving on to spend two years teaching at LVS Ascot. He played representative junior cricket for Wales and is a keen supporter of Glamorgan and all Welsh rugby. He teaches Chemistry at the school and enjoys coaching rugby and 1st XI cricket. Alex’s wife, Paige, is originally from Devon and is now a solicitor, having graduated from Bristol University. She enjoys running and horse riding in her free time.
