  • We have dealt with Principal Resourcing for many years when we needed help with covering long term teaching absences. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful and are always dedicated in trying to find the right candidate should the need arise. More recently an enormous amount of effort was put in by the team to help us find a candidate for our MFL department, for which we were very grateful.

  • I worked with Principal Resourcing this past academic year and have received absolutely fantastic service from the team. After spending a couple of weeks "on call" they placed me into a long term placement for the  rest of the year that was relevant to my specialism. Luke and the team are extremely supportive and friendly and have gone above and beyond for me this year. I look forward to continue working for Principal Resourcing in the next academic year.

The quality of Supply Staff he provides is of a very good standard and where possible he always tries to provide us with one of our 'preferred regulars' if they are available. Graham has to deal with regular last minute requests from our school to cover short term sickness, and is always contactable from very early in the morning. ' I would not hesitate to recommend Graham to another Primary School.

  • Blaise is my first point of contact with Principal Resourcing and I have always been impressed with her friendly, confident and re-assuring manner. Blaise always strives to please the customer and is on the ball to suggest alternative solutions and never appears frustrated at the sometimes unpredictable nature of providing cover for schools. One of the main reasons for continuing our agreement with Principal Resourcing has been the first class service provided by Blaise and her team.

    Mr J Palmer - Senior Cover Supervisor Tadcaster Grammar School
  • I have worked with Blaise for about a year and in that time I have found her to be friendly, efficient and very helpful.  Blaise always tries to get me the best teacher/cover supervisor for the day and ensures that I have the information I need in good time.

My job is easier knowing there will always be someone available and local to help us out.

    Michelle Cunningham - Cover/Admin Assistant Sherburn High School
  • I worked with Principal Resourcing for most of this past academic year, covering a teacher on maternity leave. I have repeatedly been impressed with the service from the team during that time. Luke and the team are friendly and professional in all that they have done, acting promptly and transparently in response to my varied queries.  

    Howard Teacher
  • Principal Resourcing is a Supply Teachers dream! Consultants take the time to get to know you and your individual work needs, and then meet your expectations in a personal but entirely professional way. I would (and do) highly recommend them.

    Catherine EYFS Teacher
  • Kat Patchett has provided me with fantastic levels of help and support since I joined P.R. She has matched me with suitable assignments and is professional, friendly and goes the extra mile for teachers.

    Daniel KS2 Teacher
  • I am extremely satisfied with the professional and courteous manner of Principal Resourcing especially our consultant Kat.  They take the time and trouble to visit the school and match the proposed candidates to our unique culture and ethos. Note is made of our requirements and great consideration is given to a 'best-fit' cover. We have experienced supply for both teaching and non-teaching positions and have been sent good quality staff who have met our expectations along with the prompt arrival of all necessary documentation and security checks.

  • Principal Resourcing is a great company to work with and we have always found them extremely professional.    They provide a good calibre of staff and are always willing to support us in recruiting the right person for the right role.  From placing the first call and request for a member of staff, they communicate effectively and efficiently with us to ensure that we gain the best candidates available.  They have a good understanding of our requirements as a Sixth Form College and are always flexible in supporting us.

    Leanne Stone - PA & Adminstration Supervisor Wyke Sixth Form College
  • PR staff have been excellent, especially Hannah Gray in Hull. I have been given excellent assignments as Hannah recognised that after a three year break and also moving from independent to state education that I would need time to rebuild my confidence. She gave me assignments that did just that. PR was recommended to me by my friend Lynda and she encouraged me to apply. I have not regretted it so far and would encourage others similarly ( although most friends think I'm mad to go back into schools having retired earlier). I would award the highest grade to every section.

    Ruth M Teacher, MFL
  • The staff at Principal are always friendly and welcoming, offering a great level of service. They ensure, where possible, that the staff they send meet the needs of the school and welcome feedback relating to this (whether it be for short or longer term supply cover). Alongside this, they try to ensure consistency of staff as much as they can. 

    Shane - Principal Ainthorpe Primary School
  • Having worked with Principal Resourcing as my primary Supplier for Teaching Staff and Cover Supervisors since 2011, I have never had the need to use another agency. I speak to a variety of staff from Principal on a daily basis, receiving a consistently high standard of Customer Service, professionalism, honesty and friendliness from all members of their team, where the calls are answered extremely promptly without fail and I am never left on ‘hold’. The high quality of candidates provided by Principal has been proven many times over where our Academy has employed multiple staff from the agency into full-time positions in alternative departments.

I have no hesitation in recommending Principal to other professional colleagues. I am very happy working with them.
