About Millfield Science & Performing Arts College

We are a small, family school with around 850 students in roll. The school is hugely popular; some of our families have even moved to ensure they are in our catchment area, and we have been vastly oversubscribed for the last ten years. Behaviour at Millfield is excellent and there is a real belief in the Team Millfield ethos.
The school is proud to have won the Secondary School National Pupil Premium award in 2014 and in 2015 the Chief of Ofsted chose to visit us, the only secondary school in the North West, and said our students were ‘delightful’. In May 2017 Ofsted confirmed that we continue to be a ‘good’ school and leadership at Millfield remains ‘outstanding’. Our Progress 8 results in 2017 were the best on the Fylde Coast. With a new curriculum model planned for September 2019 we look to continue to ‘Create Bright Futures’ for all our students.
