“I first came into contact with Luke from principal resourcing 2 years ago when working in a school office. His friendly nature, professional attitude and superb work ethic made booking supply teachers and teaching assistants a seamless experience. So after completing my own teaching qualification it was a simple choice to pick principal resourcing as the agency to represent me. The placements they have given me have suited my skill set perfectly and I have made great relationships with the teaching and support staff in those school.”

“Over the last year we have had real ups and downs with COVID-related staffing, from requiring no cover at all due to the huge reduction in the number of external meetings and courses to the days when the Track & Trace app resulted in 9 staff needing to self-isolate for one week. Whatever our situation, Principal Resourcing has been able to meet our needs and Luke and the team have been incredibly flexible when the situation has been so fluid.”

“Since starting in October I have found staff go above and beyond to not only provide weekly assignments but advice support at any time of day. Luke Bottomley as been an absolute credit  to Principal in not only being very professional but someone who will go that extra mile to get you the right assignments tailored to your skill set and at time a God send on a wake me up call!”

Teresa, Maths Teacher


“I have worked with Principal Resourcing for or supply teachers and cover supervisors since 2012 and found them perfectly reliable and provide staff of a good calibre. The team at Principal are very well organised and do their utmost to provide what is asked and we would highly recommend them as providers of supply, in fact they are first port of call should we require any cover on a daily or long-term basis.”

Odile Scouarnec - Assistant Head

“I have worked closely with Luke and the team for the past few years. They are consistently helpful, polite and good humoured. They have always worked hard to secure the roles that I like and which are best suited to my skills.”

Janet, English Teacher


“I have been with Principal Supply Agency for the past eighteen months and Luke has been one of my first contacts for a good proportion of this time. Luke has always been positive and enthusiastic and has given me many suitable placements which I have enjoyed completing.”

Marion, Primary Teacher


“This is my third year working for PR and the service has been first class. All staff in the Hull/ Scarborough office are polite, cheerful and do their best to find work, offer training and sort out any difficulties which may arise. I’ve been lucky enough to have Luke B as my main contact. He is eternally cheerful, upbeat and positive and has found me a good variety of roles.”

Ruth, French Teacher


“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.”
