Mill Hill School

 

 

Mill Hill School offers a broad education, where academic excellence is complemented by cultural, sporting and social development.

Hard work, self-criticism, enthusiasm and loyalty are encouraged in order to support our aim of developing leadership and the acceptance of responsibility. Although the School is a non-conformist Christian Foundation, girls and boys of all denominations and faiths are welcomed.

We firmly believe that the environment in which children are taught and learn is of paramount importance. We are privileged to have a school set in the most beautiful parkland setting, quite unique in London. The teaching facilities at Mill Hill are also of the highest order, particularly since the restoration of the Edwardian Marnham block in 2004 and the opening of the fabulous Favell Building in 2007

 

Daily Life

 

  

 

A distinctive feature of Mill Hill School is its House System. All pupils, whether day or boarding, are members of a House.

Houses’ study and recreational facilities are, of course, home to the boarders. House Masters and House Mistresses keep an overview of the development of the pupils in their care. They deal with both academic and pastoral issues and provide a secure and structured environment within which pupils can be encouraged to take advantage of all that is on offer at Mill Hill.

Recent inspection reports have praised the quality of pastoral care for both day and boarding pupils.

The health and welfare of pupils is also a key responsibility of the Domestic Bursar, who oversees the production of meals for both day and boarding pupils. The School also has an appropriately staffed Medical Centre and there are regular visits by GPs from the Millway Medical Practice.

Pupils’ social responsibility is informed through the work of the Eco Society which works closely with the Domestic Bursary.

ACADEMIC

Academic Overview 2014-15

 

2015 has been truly a year to celebrate in terms of public examination results, with a record A-level A*/A pass-rate of 47.9%, strong AS performances from the cohort now starting their Upper Sixth year and GCSE results where the A*/A pass-rate was a healthy eight percentage points up on that of 2014. Again 76% of A-level grades were from A* to B and the overwhelming majority of our leavers are now about to take up places at Russell Group and other leading universities in the UK and overseas. Among other newly hatched Old Millhillians, a good number are going to respected institutions that specialise in their particular disciplines; we are equally proud of their achievements and wish them every success. On the following pages, you will find a list of the exciting destinations of our Class of 2015.

Among the excellent performances at GCSE were those 65 pupils who attained at least six A*/A grades. The following pupils achieved straight A*/A grades: Maxim Asher and Daniel Wolstenholme-Powell (each with 10 A*); Xin Yue Cui, Caitlin Donovan and Hao Yuan Yang (8 A*); Harry Dawood, Masaki Kanetsuka, Oliver Miles and Kian Zoje (7 A*); Samuel Chadwick, Miriam Green, William Kilbourn, Micah Lazarus and James Sheldon (6 A*); Benedict Balcombe, Arushi Borundia, Felix Naylor Marlow, Ali Saadat and Matthew Thal (5 A*); Ethan Bamber (4 A*). In addition, we congratulate: Pin-Chuen Fang for 9 A* among other grades; Tejas Lodhia for 8 A*; Matthew Braham for 7 A*; Daniel Braham for 6 A*; Carlota Franques, Tacita Shah, Daniel Weller and Shu Yu Wen for 5 A*.

 

With the start of public examination reform just around the corner, 2015 was the last year in which Lower Sixth Formers took AS examinations in all subjects. The overall pass-rate of A/B grade equivalents was 57%, and we congratulate in particular those who achieved three A grade equivalents or better: George Beckman, Orla Brennan, Jad Faki, Weixi Fu, Alexander Habib, Yaoyi Huang, Joshua Jackson, Yuan Jia, Jason Lee, Fu Pong Ma, Thomas Miller, Sofya Namdakova, Vinay Patel, Sophie Tingle, Keval Vaghjiani, Davie Xu, Yunzhuo Yang and Yan Zeng.

In subject news, we were delighted with our first cohort of 24 GCSE Computer Science pupils who achieved 62.5% A*/A. The inaugural Lower Sixth class is now embarking on the A-level course and we shall look forward to reporting their results in 2017. The first Religious Studies cohort to go through to A-level finished with a pleasing set of grades.

The 2015-16 Remove pupils are members of the first cohort nationally for reformed GCSEs in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics which will be sat in 2017. Meanwhile, the Lower Sixth Formers are starting courses in a variety of reformed and unreformed subjects and will sit the first new-style A-levels in 2017. During this academic year, the School will make important decisions about how best to adapt to examination reform as it comes on stream for most GCSE and A-level subjects from September 2016.
