Millfield

In this latest episode of The Millfield Way Podcast, we're joined by Assistant Head (Academic) Adam Gutteridge and a few members of our key academic staff to discuss the ways our teachers try to  bring real world issues into the classroom. At Millfield,  we’re very aware as educators that the world does not stop when a student steps into the classroom, and it is our duty to reflect what is happening in the modern world in our lessons. In this episode, you'll hear about Millfield's new ‘Brilliance’ curriculum, and how we adapt our lessons to reflect modern cultural events, such as the Black Lives Matter Movement, social justice, political populism and climate change.
