Prestwood Junior School
Just to say how grateful we are to you and Laura for the work you do in providing our Supply teachers.
Waking at 6.15am to a message that a teacher is ill is not the best start to a morning, but knowing that Laura is just at the end of the phone and will be straight on to sorting a teacher for the day is such a relief!
The teachers that you have provided us with are prompt and friendly, and get on very well with the children as well as the rest of the staff.
I can honestly say I don’t know how we coped without you!
Thank you again,
Sian Beynon – Deputy Head
St Michael's Catholic High School
I would like to thank you for the two recent placements at our school. The calibre of the teachers is always fantastic and they are very reliable.
I would be happy to recommend your agency, and I have done so in the past, to other schools looking for an outstanding educational agency.

'A+ Teachers have been providing us with well qualified and experienced supply staff for a number of years. They take care to place the right teacher with us and provide a fast and efficient service for day-to-day supply staff as well as for longer term staffing solutions. I would recommend A+ but if too many schools get to hear of their service our choice of staff will be reduced!'
Mr. Kevin Patrick
Lent Rise Combined School
A+ Teachers have always been a very professional organisation, listening to the needs of the client and responding appropriately.
The teachers who have been provided by this agency have been highly skilled professionals. They have been willing to take on the full role of a teacher in this school and have been accountable for standards within an Outstanding school environment. They have responded well to the demands made of them.
I am delighted with the level of service and provision offered by A+ Teachers.
We have worked with A+Teachers for over 5 years and during that time they have consistently shown an extremely high level of professionalism ensuring that the best staff on their books are available either at short notice or for our long term supply needs.
They are highly efficient, enthusiastic and dedicated offering a great ‘personal’ level of service and excellent value for money. I always without hesitation recommend A+ agency services to other schools.

Francis Bacon School
A+ Teachers have supplied Francis Bacon with excellent candidates for our vacant positions and we have been happy to appoint them once they have been through a successful recruiting process.
The staff at A+ Teachers are always very polite and helpful and have dealt efficiently with any queries or concerns we may have had. They are pro-active in checking if everything is satisfactory and I would highly recommend their services
Finance & HR
I would have no hesitation in recommending Laura and her team at A+ Teachers.
I have always been impressed by the quality of the staff provided for us even at very short notice.
Laura deals with matters swiftly and efficiently and takes a keen interest in her clients which I have found difficult to match dealing with other agencies.
Thank you for your continued support and service.
Harlyn Primary School
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Mr S P was employed at Harlyn Primary School during the Summer Term 2009 as the Music Teacher, covering all classes across the school.
Mr Porter quickly settled into the post and provided well-prepared, interesting and stimulating lessons. He encouraged the use of musical instruments and the standard of pupil achievement was high.
Mr Porter was popular with both staff and pupils and was a good team player. He was flexible and enthusiastic and very willing to give freely of his own time.
Towards the end of the Summer Term, Mr Porter was instrumental in organising a musical “showcase” concert. The standard of performance was excellent and parents commented positively on his contribution.
Mr Porter was an asset to our staff and I would happily re-employ him as a teacher.
My Request to A+ Teachers to find a suitable teacher to fill this specific post was dealt with quickly and professionally and I would have no hesitation in using this agency again.
J E Lack (Mrs)
Manor Farm Junior School
We just wanted to say a big thank you, to you, your always helpful colleagues and the fantastic supply teachers you have found for us often at very short notice. Your response is always speedy and efficient.
We started using your agency in November 2010 and have never looked back. We know that we can rely on you to provide us with an exceptional teacher in our hour of need.
Whitehall Infants School
Since 2008 A+ Teachers have been supplying us with high calibre Teachers.
We have called them for a variety of different reasons from half day sickness covers to blocks of an entire term or longer. Our requests are always dealt with efficiently by the office staff and teachers with the correct, relevant experience are booked for our classes. As importantly they tell us if they don’t have teachers with the right experience, so that we can try elsewhere or take their next best alternative.
Whenever a new teacher comes to our school from A+ Teachers the consultants always call during the day to check how things are going and that we are happy with them. If ever we have had any concerns feedback is graciously taken and passed on to the teachers. This enables the consultants to assess the types of teachers that we are looking for and provides the teacher with valuable feedback to improve their own practise.
One of our existing members of staff began here as a supply teacher from A+ Teachers and she was so good that we took her on ourselves because we did not want to see her go.
Our school will continue to use A+ Teachers as the overall service we receive is of the highest standard, I would recommend them to any other school or Headteacher as an excellent provider of top quality staff.
Ruth Gentry - Cover Manager - The Broxbourne School
I have been using A+ Teachers since the beginning of this year and my main point of contact is Bradley.
I have always found Bradley to be very professional and helpful. All my requests for supply staff have been dealt with quickly and efficiently.
I have been very pleased with the staff that have been placed at The Broxbourne School and am more than happy to have any of them back at the school. Most of my supply needs have been for PE Teachers and the HOD has always given me good feedback on the staff. I look forward to a continuing good relationship in the future.
Miss R Gentry – Nov 2009
John Paine - Deputy Head Teacher - Borden Grammar School
As from September 2010, I will be leaving Borden Grammar to take up a slightly less hectic life style!
I would like to thank you for your friendly, professional, efficient and high quality service. I have also been impressed by the calibre of your teachers. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and I wish you well for the future.
Longmead Primary School - West Drayton
We are very pleased with the service we receive from A+ Teachers.
The office staff are always friendly, helpful and efficient. We can always rely on them to send reliable, confident teachers.
We have always found A+ Teachers to be responsive and reliable.
Marcus Faulkner - Headteacher - An Aylesbury Primary School
I would highly recommend A+ Teachers to any school that may be looking for high quality supply teachers; several of the supply teachers have in fact joined us as permanent members of staff.
We are always impressed by the personal service that we receive and the agencies helpful nature.
As a school we would never consider using any other supply agency!
Rachel Preston - Head Teacher - Parkgate Junior School
As a school we have been using A+ Teachers to provide our supply cover for over four years. We have always been very satisfied with the service Laura and her team provide.
We use the agency both for pre-booked supply for courses and also on the day sickness cover.
We are pleased with the quality of teachers A+ Teachers provide and have employed their supply teachers several times for long term cover or permanent positions.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend A+ Teachers to other schools.
Parkgate Junior School
Mandeville Upper School - Aylesbury
I would just like to say a very big thank you to you and all of your team at A+ Teachers for the incredible service you have provided to our school in the three years that I have been the Cover Manager.
When I first took the role on we were using lots of different supply agencies and the level of service we received from them was poor at best and then I spoke to you and I have never looked back since. The teachers I have had from you have been very professional, keen and willing to help in any way they can, but more importantly they have been punctual.
The other thing that I have found in the time I have been working with you is the professionalism of yourself and your team in the office. I have never had a problem finding out who is coming to us on which day and you have never once lost a booking, or been unable to send someone to me when I have asked. I am truly grateful for the relationship that we have been able to forge with A+ Teachers.
Thank you for all your help and support so far, I look forward to continuing this successful relationship.

"Our dealings with A+ Teachers have been painless and productive experiences. Staff were highly helpful and attentive to the school's exact requirements. Their assurances about the quality of the teaching staff to be supplied were accurate and the staff themselves of a consistently good calibre we have not found with other agencies."
Princes Risborough School
It is with great pleasure that I write to compliment the services of A+ Teachers.
Over the past 12 months we have received exemplary service, the flexibility of supply staff being able to come in on a daily basis – often with half an hours’ notice. The hard work that goes into finding teachers for full time positions and the paper chase involved is a credit to you.
The quality of the teaching staff supplied is of a generally good standard with all teachers being amenable and enthusiastic.
Jacky Dunford - Assistant Head – staff development
All ok up here and I’m starting to pick up a bit of supply teaching.
Just a quick note to say …
I now realise that you and all at A Plus Teachers are a 'class act' when it come to supply teaching agencies. The agencies up here in the north east are very poor in comparison.
Thanks and all the best,
Primary Teacher living in Berkhamsted
I was really impressed with A+ Teachers, they were welcoming and keen to find me employment and at the same time thoroughly professional ensuring that my skills matched the needs of the schools. They made the administration side of things very simple and were easy to contact and to work with.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Year 2 Class teacher
Lene - MFL Teacher - SE London
Amanda from A+ Teachers has given me a personal and professional service, never delegating contact with me to anyone else. She has been in prompt contact through email and telephone, always keeping me up to date and informed.
She showed confidence in me by doing her best to get me the first interview that came up after registering with the agency in a very competitive jobs market - the job I got!
Thanks A+, I'll come back to you if I ever need to look for work in the future!
Jane - Teacher of Humanities - London
To whom it may concern,
Amanda Deighton has been my ‘A+ Teachers’, coordinator and adviser since this time last year. Amanda has always been informative and supportive throughout my association with A+ Teachers and has been very astute and perceptive in her ability to match a school with my experience and training.
Amanda’s support and professionalism in assuring that I was well allocated and happy with my postings has given me the confidence to be open and honest about my placements and resolve any issues of concern. All this has made my whole process a smooth riding one.
Nicola - Art Teacher - Stevenage
Nikki at Heathcote's in Stevenage. Just to say thanks to you and Amanda again for finding me this position. I am really enjoying the challenge. Take Care!
Kim - Secondary PE Teacher
A+ Teachers have been a fantastic agency to work for over the last few months. Signing on was easy and very quick compared to the masses of paperwork other agencies were asking for.
Further, despite only wanting to do supply work for 2 months to earn some money between the end of PGCE and my full time post in September, they were still more than willing to take me on and were able to give me a a lot of work; especially considering it was right at the end of term.
I would recommend A+ Teachers for anyone looking for a reliable, friendly and more personalble agency!
Phil - Primary Teacher - Flamstead
I enjoy working for A+ Teachers because they provide good information about the schools I am visiting and it is frequently first hand experience. The schools they have on their books are good schools and I like the chatty banter when work is given out to me, it makes it friendly and less formal.
Katie - Primary Teacher - Aylesbury
“Working with A+ Teachers has been so personalised. I have felt supported, informed and guided throughout my experience so far. From the start it has felt more like a family than a business. I look forward to developing my skills and experience with them in the future.”
Charlotte - Primary Teacher - Bourne End
Dear Laura and Bradley,
“I just wanted to say thank you for all the supply work over the last few weeks. I've really enjoyed the work I've done and have felt really 'looked after' and well supported by you guys. I'll definitely be back for more when I return from my travels!”
Rakhee - Primary Teacher - Gerrards Cross
Thanks for all your help starting my teaching career. I decided to supply teach to get a feel for a range of different schools to find out which would be most suitable for me. I liked how everyone was always positive, helpful and had time to answer any queries.
Karen - Music Teacher - SE London
When I registered with teaching agencies, Amanda from A+ Teachers made the effort to travel to meet me in person and discuss my needs and potential employment opportunities.
Amanda found a position for me that matched my needs, and has been my contact throughout my time with A+ Teachers. She has always been approachable and available to offer advice and guidance, no matter how small the issue or question!
I would strongly recommend A+ Teachers to anyone wanting assistance to find an appropriate position.
Moana - Primary Teacher - Berkhamsted
Hello Martin, Laura and Bradley,
I just wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated working with you. Thank you for helping me to start teaching in this country which is significantly different from my own.
You are a great team. Thank you for the way you have contributed to our lives and helped us to get established here. Thanks Martin, for deciding to give me a try and helping us to be accepted for our current rental property.
All the best for the future,
Jane - English and Drama Teacher - Hertfordshire
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your support and kindness in carrying me through my first experience of finding work through an agency.
I am very happy with John Colet school, who have made me feel very welcome during my day with the English department.
I have taken in all my documents and will need to sign the contract in September after the govenors etc ... one question I have is for next year, can I simply pick up the phone and speak to one of you regarding future work?
I will, of course, recommend Aplus as a first rate professional agency to any of my friends who might be interested in the future. Good luck Amanda on returning to the NHS.
Thanks again, all of you.
