OM of the Year

OMOfYearThe OM of the Year award was instituted in 2000 to acknowledge and reward Old Millfieldian excellence of achievement in a wide range of fields including service, academic, business, the arts and sports around the world.

In the 18 years since we inaugurated the scheme, we have only selected 67 OMs from our database of 20,000 members: authors, international sportsmen and Olympic winners, media personalities, West End and film directors, gardeners, musicians, national and industrial leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs, pioneering doctors and charity and humanitarian workers.
