Principal Teachers Ltd is the leading provider of supply teachers in the North. We are an independently owned, specialist provider of Education staffing and consultancy services to Schools and Academy Trusts across the North East and Yorkshire.
Founded in 2000 by a teacher, the company has earned a reputation for delivering an outstanding friendly and ethical service. The success of our business emanates from the long-lasting sustainable relationships that we have built with our clients and candidates.
Becca Morgan - Director
Offering support with short-term, long-term and permanent recruitment, our experienced team is well-placed to assist schools with their staffing needs. Not only do we place qualified teaching staff but we can also help with a range of support staff such as Teaching Assistants, Administrators, Cover Supervisors and more.
By working in true partnership with our client schools, Principal Teachers offers a best-value service which is tailored to exact requirements. Our consultancy solutions are both proactive yet responsive to demand, and if we need to develop our service in order to accommodate a request then we are happy to do so.
As an ethical business we have strong links with the communities in which we work, investing financially and personally to improve the lives of children and families. If you have a project that we can support then we'd love to hear from you.
In order to join our supply team we operate a thorough interview and vetting process, only working with the highest calibre practitioners. Once accepted by Principal Teachers all of our supply staff become part of a professional and highly motivated team, whose aim is to deliver an outstanding level of teaching and learning or support within schools.
"I am in full support of agencies which provide such a valuable service, as long as-there is a clear selection process, accountability, quality assurance and a reasonable cost. I would rather spend my time leading my school effectively and improving the standards for the children than wasting valuable hours on the telephone attempting to find a suitable supply teacher. Long live Principal Teachers"
North Yorkshire County Council
“Principal Teachers always give an efficient and reliable service with a friendly yet professional approach. Nothing is too much of a problem and in my experience you have great knowledge of your schools, enabling you to offer staff which match each setting.”

"The PT team have an amazing ability of keeping both the schools and their teachers/ teaching assistants happy at the same time: as a teacher, I feel a valued member of their community. I have had a steady stream of a wide variety of jobs over the past year: individual tuition, primary, secondary, special schools - all come to Principal Teachers because of their excellent reputation and commitment. If you're looking for work, come here!"

Principal Teachers Supply Team
On the day of the final GCSE exam, I wanted to say an absolutely HUGE thank you to the invigilation staff you sent us. Without exception, they were all excellent...I couldn't have asked for a better, more reliable team. It makes a huge difference to know you have a great team behind you, who can cope with last minute changes and who actually bother to read the ICE booklet and therefore understand the complex expectations
North Yorkshire Secondary School
I cannot recommend Principal Teachers enough. I have been a teacher with them for almost a year and a half, I honestly love working for them! The staff are absolutely amazing and super supportive. Mel and the team are always at the end of the phone if I need them and I always have work in great schools because they are really great at organising it.
I have been working for Principal Teachers for over a year now. They are professional, efficient, supportive and really fantastic to work for. The office staff are always on hand should any issues arise. They have always made me feel like part of a big family, not just another number on the payroll. I would recommend to any teachers who wish to work on a supply basis. They also offer a fantastic provision in their 'Hub' for students who require that extra support.
