Salary: competitive

We wish to appoint a dedicated Teacher of EAL (English as an Additional Language) from September 2024. We’re looking for someone with a recognised EAL teaching qualification and experience working with diverse student populations. Your role will involve delivering high-quality instruction, supporting student progress, and contributing to the professional development of our staff.

About us

Founded in 1935, Millfield’s vision is to be the world leader for the development of children. There are nearly 1,300 students at the senior school (year 9 to U6), with a 3:1 ratio of boarding to day. Although essentially a rural British school, 20 per cent of Millfield students are international and come from more than 70 countries.

Set in over 100 acres of grounds, Millfield’s size brings great opportunity, and the facilities are unmatched in the UK: an Olympic-sized swimming pool, golf courses, indoor centres for tennis, golf and cricket and an equestrian centre; concert hall, recording studio, theatre, art gallery, hi-tech Science block and outstanding teaching facilities; and high-quality boarding accommodation.

Our aim is to discover brilliance in every child and to immerse them in academic, creative and sporting opportunities to develop this brilliance. We offer an exceptionally wide range of courses and provide multiple pathways through the school to meet the needs of the individual child.


We strongly believe in employee wellbeing and, as such, there are many benefits available, including:

  • Small class sizes (typical class sizes are 8–14)         
  • All teachers are issued with an iPad as part of our mobile learning project        
  • Various opportunities for professional development        
  • Longer holidays than the maintained sector        
  • Fee concessions across the prep and senior school        
  • Free on-site parking   
  • Heavily subsidised lunches (of outstanding quality) and free refreshments are available throughout the day

If you’re passionate about empowering EAL learners and contributing to their academic success, we want to hear from you!

Apply now to join our team and help shape the future of our students.

Closing date: Noon on Wednesday 20th March 2024

Please note that applications will be considered on receipt, and as a result the vacancy may close early should an appointment be made. As such we would recommend submitting your application as soon as possible.
