Mill Hill County High School is a large secondary school with academy status located in Mill Hill, London, England. It was the first comprehensive school in the United Kingdom to have had a student taken on the prestigious Morehead-Cain merit scholarship program in the United States and is an official Morehead-Cain nominating school.[2]


It is for students aged 11 to 18. The school has 1,700 pupils as of 2009.[3] The current headmaster of the school is Geoffrey Thompson.


In accordance with the school's specialism in technology, the school selects 10% of its intake through a test of abstract reasoning. A further 15% are selected via auditions for musical and dance ability. The remaining places are allocated to applicants who have a sibling at the school, or who live near to the school.[4]
