There are five day houses; one mixed Year 9 house, and two girls' houses and two boys' houses for Years 10 to Upper Sixth. Each day house has a Housemaster or Housemistress (HsM) and Assistant HsM, who provide a strong support structure. Beyond the house, day pupils and boarders are supported by a Group Tutor and Head of Year in school, and have access to a very well staffed Medical Centre, a school counselling service and the chaplain.
The day houses are decorated in a homely style and are a base for pupils to meet, bring friends and enjoy the daily routine of life at Millfield. Each house has its own common room with flatscreen TV, space to mingle and relax. The girls’ houses also have their own changing rooms.
