The best institutions have a sense of purpose and at MELHC this is ingrained. We have clear ideas about what we want to achieve in a modern learning environment. This is a people industry and we realise that when parents send their children to us they don’t just want a language course, what they really want is the best possible future for them.
We engineer spaces where natural learning can take place in a holistic setting, equipping students with life (and life-long) language ability, skills, and social and cultural awareness.
We do this by employing dedicated and inspirational staff in a creative and innovative environment.
We recognise also that peers are perhaps equally as important as teachers. For this reason we invite students of the same age to come and share this sometimes life changing experience as mentors. These young mentors guide, support, and help international students to develop friendships and model spoken English. They are residential and take part in all English lessons, activities, excursions, and social events.
Nothing is more important to us than sparking the curious minds of the leaders of the future.
Millfield Enterprises is a business that represents the prestigious name of Millfield School in the provision of holiday courses and events.
All of the staff in our employment, all of the students under our care and all parents, agents and visitors are treated with equal concern and without prejudice to their religious persuasion, racial origin, cultural background, gender, disability or special needs.
Positive attitudes are encouraged by promoting respect for others at all times.
We believe in people and our aim is to ensure that time spent with us is productive, memorable, stimulating and enjoyable. We want everyone to get involved, make friends and fully develop their potential.
