Mill Hill School is a boarding and day school for pupils aged 13 - 18. The school is the heart of a Foundation dating back to 1807, which also includes our Pre-Prep, Grimsdell; our Prep, Belmont and The Mount, Mill Hill International. Set in over 150 acres of beautiful grounds, the Mill Hill School Foundation occupies an enviable location, just a short tube ride from central London, and we believe that the fresh air and open space which we enjoy enhances the Mill Hill experience for
About the school
The importance of moral integrity is central to our values as a school, and we seek to educate young people who will be able to contribute to society, both now and in the future. Our learning community brings boys and girls of different cultures and backgrounds together, and helps them to understand the importance of respect in their everyday lives.
Mill Hill’s educational philosophy is based on offering breadth and balance, complementing the academic with the co-curricular, the technological with the traditional and individuality with a sense of community. Mill Hill is proud of its long-standing reputation for sporting excellence, and all Mill Hillians have the chance to represent their school.
Celebrated for its pastoral care, Mill Hill provides all pupils with the supportive environment of a Day or Boarding House; dedicated spaces and staff teams who guide pupils on their journey through the school.
In 2020, 63% of all GCSE passes achieved were graded at 9-7, and at A Level, 49% of all passes achieved were A*-A. Our Sixth Formers have access to a range of experts in school and in partner organisations who guide them on their options, with many pupils going on to further study at a wide range of Russel Group and international universities, four pupils achieving Oxbridge places in 2020, and some heading down more creative pathways or entering Degree Apprenticeships.

Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees
We currently set aside a significant sum each year in order to fund scholarships and to allow us to provide bursaries to pupils whose families would otherwise be unable to afford our fees. The maximum amount awarded in any new scholarship or combination of scholarships (including Sixth Form scholarships) is 10% of a day or boarding fee, as appropriate.
A wide range of awards are offered to pupils entering the Fourth and Sixth Forms (Years 9 and 12). These awards broadly fall into two categories – Scholarships and Bursaries.
Scholarships, which attract a maximum of 10% fee remission, are available to pupils showing exceptional talent in a variety of areas both in the classroom and on the sports field. In addition to major awards, there are a number of minor Awards or Exhibitions also on offer. The Head, Deputy Head or the Assistant Registrar are happy to advise parents and feeder schools about any of these awards.
Means-tested bursaries are available to new entrants to the School. Such awards are intended to extend the benefits of a Mill Hill education to pupils whose families would not otherwise be able to afford the School’s fees. In addition, the School makes provision for the award of hardship bursaries to assist families who experience sudden and unexpected hardship. Bursaries are funded from the School’s fee income, supplemented by contributions to The Mill Hill School Foundation Appeal.
Bursary awards are made by the Court of Governors upon the recommendation of the Foundation Bursary Committee. Families wishing to apply for financial support are encouraged to request a Bursary Application Form which is available from the Bursar’s office firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entry to the school is available at 13+ and 16+ (Sixth Form). We have a Year 9 intake of around 170 pupils and typically between 40 and 50 pupils join us at 16+ in the Lower Sixth. Parents considering 13+ (Year 9) entry for their child should follow the Early Testing Track when their child is in Year 6. Applications must be made by the November before the year of entry.
