The ethos of boarding at Mill Hill is to provide a safe and secure family environment within which pupils can develop and become independent, confident and responsible young adults. When pupils board at Mill Hill, they become part of an extended family; their problems will be shared and triumphs celebrated. Living and working within a genuine community provides safe training ground within which to develop critical life skills.
On joining the school at 13 years of age most pupils will share a room with one or two others. By the time pupils reach Sixth Form, it is usual for them to have their own study bedroom.
The Mill Hill School foundation is fortunate to be situated in a beautiful secure parkland setting just a few miles from the centre of London. Boarders enjoy enhanced access to all the schools facilities:
Being on-site, boarders are also able to take full advantage of the wide variety of evening concerts, lectures and theatrical events that occur throughout the year.
Structured homework sessions every evening enable boarders to keep up with all their schoolwork, as well as to develop a dedicated work ethic that prepares them for university and beyond.
Each term stimulating and interesting outings are arranged for boarders such as trips to London’s many museums and art galleries. Pupils are also taken bowling, ice-skating and to the cinema and the theatre.
Within the Boarding House, activities are arranged such as film nights, concerts and parties so that boarders can get together and have fun as a group.
