On the first of September 1994, Mrs. Mills – joined one month later by Miss Tricia – welcomed seven little children on their first day at “The Mills English School” which, at the time, consisted in a single classroom in the centre of Udine.
The following year saw the arrival of our first assistant – Miss Lucy, from Ireland – as there were now eighteen girls and boys in the happy little group.
In 1996, the overwhelming need to find vaster spaces led Mrs. Mills to move the school into much bigger premises. That was also the year that saw our first primary class – and a total of 36 children.
Since then, our school has continued to grow and develop constantly, so that at present we provide the best education for well over 200 students, ranging between the ages of 2 (Infants) and 14 (YR.9).
Academic excellence and a tailored bilingual curriculum, outstanding ethical guidance and extra-curricular activities of an extraordinary quality are the cornerstones of The Mills, where every pupil is nurtured and encouraged to fulfil his potential.
Our aim – to stretch the most able and support the least confident – informs and guides all that we do. We are committed to preparing all pupils to leave The Mills ready to engage with and contribute to the world beyond school with a clear idea of who they are and what they believe.
