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!
Emily Tait became Millfield House Housemistress in September 2019. Millfield House will be the ninth boarding house that Emily has worked in and, in each of these, she has strived to ensure that all pupils in her care feel happy and safe, in an environment in which they can thrive, whatever their interests. Prior to her time at Millfield, Emily was Housemistress of the junior girls house at St Swithun’s school, Winchester, having also lived and worked in both girls and boys houses at Sevenoaks School and St Margaret’s College, Christchurch, New Zealand. Emily Tait is a teacher of History at Millfield, as well as a netball coach and she also has an involvement in the school’s CCF. Outside of school time, Emily enjoys playing netball and skiing, as well as visiting friends around the world.
