Millfield School Dubai tuition fee structure, location, general information
- Millfield School Dubai. Middle East branch of Millfield School UK. Agreement signed between CERT (HCT) and Millfield UK in 2012, but after 2013 news on progress, no further updates seen as of March 2019. Status unknown, presumed abandoned or indefinitely postponed.
- Millfield UK offers A-Level and GCSE courses so it is assumed the Dubai campus would offer the same courses.
- Millfield School UK past students (Old Millfieldians) include Sheikh Nahayan Mubarak Al Nahyan, a UAE govenment minister and member of the Abu Dhabi royal family; and Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (1956-2019), Deputy Prime Minister of the UAE from 1990-2009 and also an Abu Dhabi royal family member.

- Millfield seems to have less interest in Dubai than previously, not seen on the list of attending schools for the Nov 2019 UK Boarding School Exhibition in Dubai.
05 March 2018
- Representatives from Millfield Prep and Millfield Senior Schools will be in Dubai from 14-18 Mar 2018 to attend the the British Boarding Schools Exhibition from 16-17 Mar 2018. This is for prospective students interested in attending Millfield School in Britain, not the proposed new Dubai branch of the school (which looks like it's not happening).
25 October 2017
- Millfield School will have someone(s) from their admissions office at the UK Boarding School Exhibition in Dubai from 01-07 Nov 2017, for enrolment at the UK Millfield School, not the Dubai one.
20 March 2015
- A report in The National 19 Mar 2015 mentioned Millfield School as having plans for a UAE campus but did not give any further information, and was presumably referring to the news from 2012-2013.
- The Old Millfieldian Society Chronicle 2014 published the text of a speech given in 2013 by Sheikh Nahayan Mubarak Al Nahyan, in which he referred to progress on the Millfield UAE project "... I am pleased to note that the Governing Body of Millfield has given its unanimous approval for this project to move to the next phase of implementation, which is to raise the necessary funding and to secure the site that has been identified for the school in Dubai."
05 November 2013

- Millfield School Dubai was mentioned in the 08 Oct 2012 press release for Education Investment MENA 2012 event held in Dubai, "David Williamson, Chair of the International Campus Committee, Millfeld School UK, will discuss their motives for expanding into the region" (presumably they meant Millfield not Millfeld).
14 April 2012 report
- An Arabian Business report said "... CERT and Millfield will jointly evaluate the feasibility of bringing the Millfield model of education to the Middle East and Asia in the form of a school in Dubai...", referring to the agreement signed by representatives of both institutions.
12 April 2012 review
- A press release said "UK's Millfield School and the Centre of Excellence for Applied Research and Training (CERT), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for opening a branch of the former in Dubai."
