Burton Bank is ideally located on the edge of the main School campus at the bottom of Wills Grove. A short walk will take the boys and girls to wherever they need to go, be it lessons or the dining hall. Not being in the heart of the school estate allows the pupils to escape from the hustle and bustle of our busy school and the walk back means pupils can throw away all the trials and tribulations of a busy day before reaching the pleasant tranquillity of the House, with far reaching views over the playing fields that surround us.
My family, coupled with an incredibly devoted House team, all strive to nurture excellent relationships within year groups, as well as the positive rapport across year groups where the senior pupils set the standards for the younger members of the House to follow. We aim to provide an environment in Burton Bank where all members, including all House staff, feel welcome and valued and recognise that one-to-one pastoral care is essential in getting the most out of any one individual.
Burton Bank has come to mean friendship and loyalty where we all work together for the benefit of the House, Mill Hill School and each other, showing respect for one another at all times.
We aim to instil a culture based on a disciplined approach, integrity and happiness where we all strive to the work to the best of our ability, challenging ourselves beyond our comfort zone and embracing the many opportunities that are available at this wonderful school.
Day to day life in Burton Bank is a place in which to seek good company, to have fun away from the rigours of academic pursuits and to enjoy down time and relax. We see importance in creating memories and very much hope that these will be instilled in us for a long time to come.
