Millfield announced as Finalists in the Independent Schools of the Year 2019

Millfield has been named as a finalist for three categories in the Independent Schools of the Year 2019 Awards. The school has made the final for Independent School of the Year for International Student Experience, Rising Star (Lower Sixth Yuhka) and Independent School of the Year for Contribution to Social Mobility.

Millfield is one of a number of schools to make it through to the final stage of the competition out of over 250 schools. The awards are run by Independent School Parent magazine and open to independent schools from across the country. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in October.

Millfield Headmaster, Gavin Horgan, says, “We are thrilled to have been named as finalists in three fantastic categories for the Independent School Parent awards. Millfield is incredibly proud of the experience we offer for international students, and we are delighted to be commended for our contributions to social mobility, an issue that is incredibly important to us here at Millfield. Our Lower Sixth mathematician and musician, Yuhka, also deserves to be celebrated following a fantastic year as part of the UK team at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad. We look forward now to sharing this success with the whole school community, including our parents, students, and our teaching teams.”

David Moncrieff is Chair of the Editorial Advisory Board at Independent School Parent magazine, who run the awards. He said:

“Following the huge success of the inaugural competition last year, which saw more than 250 school nominations entered, we are thrilled to have surpassed that figure for Independent Schools of the Year 2019. The awards have again been designed with the student experience at their heart and to provide schools with a platform to showcase their stories of innovation and success. The judges now have a tough job on their hands picking the winners from the shortlisted entries that were of such a consistently high standard.”
