“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


Today was my last day working for PR and it’s been a fantastic experience, thanks to Hannah Gray initially and then Luke Bottomley. Luke has encouraged me out of my comfort zone so many times and his last placement was certainly the best- I went to Gladstone Road for ‘two weeks, maybe four’ in October- finally left today!

Just wanted you to know how much

I’ve appreciated Luke’s help and encouragement.

Thank you to all at PR for finding me work. Here’s wishing you all the best for the future.

I started teaching in 1977 before you were all born probably , and supply has been the perfect end.

“Obviously, it is natural to be sceptical about anything today. Thanks to Principal Resourcing with the assistance of Luke Bottomley, I took a leap of faith, leaving a full-time permanent post to work for the agency ( I had from qualify as a Teacher, always had a full time permanent job). The company Principal Resourcing and the quality team of people, that work with the common goal of working for you as an individual, is unbelievable, so genuine, and helpful.”

Chrissy, PE Teacher


“Luke and the team have been amazing! They have been friendly, very supportive and fast to answer any queries. They were supper fast to place me in a school, I sign the contract on a Tuesday and on a Friday in the same week they call me to work in a Secondary school for a full week, which has been know renewed for a long term. Highly recommended.”

Critina, EAL Teaching Assistant


“We have built up a regular bank of competent cover supervisors and supply teachers who support the school on a regular basis and the provision of candidates for longer term placements has been excellent.”

Ed Stewart - Cover Manager

“Luke has always been professional, friendly, committed and will always sort out any queries quickly. He has secured a range of interesting work for me over the last few years. I would not hesitate to recommend Luke and Principal Resourcing to anyone considering working for a supply agency.”

Steph, English Tutor


“I am delighted with the way Principal Resourcing secured my furlough payment during the first lockdown. From the beginning of the lockdown, regular contact was maintained with me via email while waiting for government decisions during this most turbulent time. The emails not only gave me hope of financial help but the sense that the agency genuinely cared for my well being. This was confirmed to me when Luke Bottomley personally called to tell me I had been successfully furloughed.”

Lynda, English Teacher


“I have worked with Principal Resourcing over the past ten years where I have always found their positivity, efficiency, professional and communication of an excellent standard. They explore what we are looking for in a candidate and then make relevant suggestions. During Covid19 their support has been unwavering, and they have gone the extra mile to support our college as and when needed.”
