Lockdown has not quelled the Millfield spirit, with the annual celebration of our Upper Sixth Media students’ fabulous work hosted virtually at the end of June as part of a YouTube premiere.
Here at Millfield we were well equipped to roll out remote learning for our students at relatively short notice. We have been using iPads for many years and we already had provisions in place to facilitate effective remote teaching and learning. Millfield is a leader in using technology in the classroom, on the sports field and in our co-curricular programmes and we continuously innovate to deliver the most effective provision and learning experiences. Alongside our academic study, fitness and conditioning programmes, coaching services and seamless pastoral care are available for students, staff and members of the Millfield community alike wherever they are learning in the world.

Just before the end of the 2020 Spring Term, Millfield students and their teachers began a transition into remote learning from their homes as a result of the international coronavirus pandemic. Here, some of those students explain how they have found online lessons so far.
The transition to remote learning has been a new challenge for Millfield Prep School. However, with pupils already used to using technology in their everyday learning, the school community has quickly adapted to the new ‘remote learning’ period.
We caught up with two Millfield Prep teachers, who told us all about their experience of the first week of remote teaching.
