A Very Royal Thank You!

In the Summer term, Millfield School Council worked together to create a card and a letter which was sent to King Charles to mark his coronation; within the card we included a Millfield Coronation Medal for him to also keep as a keepsake.


We were thrilled to receive a very special delivery this week all the way from Buckingham Palace! It was a decorative card and personalised letter from the Head of Royal Correspondence on behalf of The King thanking Millfield children and staff for our ‘very kind letter, and for the charming wooden commemorative medal’.


This was shared and celebrated within our celebration assembly today. Children were delighted with this news!
