Social and External Reviews

School House Recruitment are please to have consistently achieve high satisfaction and positive reviews from our customers.

Teacher and Teaching Assistant

Over the past year I have joined a few agencies so I have a few different options but found they don’t listen when it comes to area and days you want to work. So I had just about given up when I came across School House. The staff are pleasant and work hard to find assignments that match your qualifications and experience. I got a job within a week near home and love it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Mrs J Winter, Teaching Assistant, Sheffield

Thank you for having me on your books, as well as having patience with me whilst I attended interviews. My recent assignment challenged me and helped me gain my mojo back after leaving my previous, difficult role. In the future, I will know who to contact first.

Dan Lacey, Teaching Assistant, Sheffield

The team at School House are extremely supportive and work with you to ensure you are happy in the schools you teach at. They go above and beyond to check in with you and listen to your opinions. Working on supply can be daunting but the staff are supportive and welcoming so that you do not feel isolated.

Christabel Martin, Teacher, Sheffield

It was such a great decision to register myself with School House Recruitment from the very first meeting I had with Andrew and Lucy I was made to feel welcome and valued.

They regularly keep in touch with assignments which are suitable to you as well as regular updates on training course available for you to attend.

Their professional attitude , job assignments and friendliness is outstanding to which I am so grateful to have been a part of.

Mrs T Wainwright, Teaching Assistant, Rotherham

My experience as a supply teacher with School House has been excellent overall – they make sure that you have regular work coming through as much as possible. Both Lucy and Andrew listen when you have concerns/issues and they are fully supportive.

I can recommend School House, I am proud to be with an excellent agency.

Nasreen Hussain, EYFS & KS1 Teacher, Sheffield

Andrew is very supportive and has a great sense of humour. He has arranged both short and long term contracts in schools that I have really enjoyed teaching in. The schools I have worked at through School House have made me feel welcome and cared for. They are all friendly and I always know where I am and who to turn to for support.

Mrs Durdy, Teacher, Doncaster

I would highly recommend School House Recruitment; they have been helpful, supportive and proactive in finding supply work for me following a relocation to the Sheffield area. Lucy and Andrew are very reliable and will answer any questions you may have, no matter how great or small. They are an excellent agency.

Joseph H, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

I love working for School House Recruitment, the staff are amazing, with great communication working around my available times (as I am still in education). It did not take long at all to get signed off and cleared to start supply work. The schools that I have visited are so welcoming and a joy to work with.

Sophie Palmer, Teaching Assistant, Sheffield

I joined School House 2018. Since then I have worked in various schools.
The team at School House are professional, friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for short or long term work.

Deborah Johnson, Teaching Assistant

Having been registered with School House Recruitment for a number of years, I have always found the agency to be extremely professional and considerate.  The team have actively sourced supply duties on my behalf, provided training, addressed employment concerns and financial matters expeditiously.  I am truly grateful for their support, and I have, and will continue to recommend the company to my fellow colleagues and students who are considering the teaching profession.  Many thanks to Claire, Paul and the diligent office staff for facilitating placements which have enabled me to develop my pedagogy and meet some wonderful people.

Miss Dowd, Supply Teacher

School House Recruitment are a pleasure to work with. Since joining them in April 2022, I have always had regular supply, and the communication is second to none. Andrew and Lucy are very professional and extremely supportive. It was quite daunting signing up to a supply agency but they made the process really simple and put my mind at rest. I can’t thank them enough.

Louise E. Teacher, Sheffield

I have been working with School House Recruitment for over a year now and all I can say is that they are all amazing. You could not get a more professional, friendly, and helpful team. Every member of the team are fantastic and personally I wouldn’t go with any other agency. Thanks to Claire, Paul and all the girls. 

Steph Hind

Schoolhouse is a fair and honest agency. They have managed to maintain a small, family feel. I am treated like a person rather than a money maker and I have never felt pressured to take work when I don’t want it. Schoolhouse pays weekly and is always on time with payments, even when schools have been slow to send through timesheets. I have loved the work I have been given by Schoolhouse and would recommend them to anyone looking for supply teaching work. In the past, I have considered agencies to be a necessary “bother” but my experience with Schoolhouse has made me think that maybe agencies can benefit both schools and supply teachers and be a positive and supportive part of the process.

Mrs Mills

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much to yourself and all the School House staff for all your hard work and help, not only this week but throughout lockdown. I have made a few calls this week to ask for help re timesheets and the friendly personable nature of your staff and the ‘no question is a silly question’ attitude has been a god send.  I know I can contact to ask for help or advice about anything work related.  It is really reassuring; this isn’t always the case with other companies. During these unusual times School House support and ongoing contact, even just to touch base, has added that personal touch. School House have made me feel like a valued member of staff, not just a number on the books and that means the world. I had previously been apprehensive about supply when completing my teacher training. So thank you again. 

C Walker

School House are excellent to work for. I have been offered work whenever I have wanted it. The information about each school is very good and tell me exactly what I need to know before I go to the job. Working as a supply teacher has given me the opportunity to still stay in the profession, working to support children, which I love, whilst allowing me to develop my career through training in a different skill. Supply teaching and working for School House has given me the work/life balance I needed. I would definitely recommend School House.

Holly, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

School House Recruitment have very friendly staff who take the time to check your weekly availability by speaking personally to you by phone rather than just an impersonal email.

They make feel that you are a valued person rather than just a name on a list.

The office staff listen to you and take note of your preferences when matching you to assignments.

The communication between the office and teachers is excellent and I have been kept up to date throughout  covid 19 / lockdown.

Mrs C Brooks

I have worked with School House for 5 years now and can VERY highly recommend them. The staff are friendly, efficient and always very helpful. They always listen to any working preferences you have and match you with suitable vacancies. Thankyou School House for making it possible for me to do a job I love! Mrs Papworth, Supply TA, Stockton

I love working at School House, the placements I have received and attended have been brilliant. I have enjoyed the schools with more challenging roles the best. 

Mrs Emmerson, Stockton

I’ve worked with School House for 8 years now. They are a friendly, reliable, trustworthy agency who have always done their best to find my long term and day to day assignments which suit my requirements. I have recommended them many times to friends and colleagues who were looking to start supply work.

Miss Derbyshire, Supply Teacher, Hartlepool. 

I’ve worked for School House Recruitment for a number of years now and have really enjoyed my assignments with them. The groundwork for excellent relationships with the schools has been laid brilliantly by Andrew and Lucy and the rest of the team and, as a result, the reception I received as a teacher visiting these schools was always warm and friendly. Furthermore, the team is easy to contact and dedicated to making sure both the school and the teacher are happy. What’s different from other agencies I’ve worked with is that at School House they really know who you are – you’re not just a name on a list and they really do their best for you. They’re absolutely first class and I would highly recommend them.

Rebecca, Primary Teacher, Sheffield

I have worked for School House Recruitment for over ten years and they have always found me suitable work that I like. They have provided me with great service at either short-notice or with a longer time frame. Both day-to-day and long-term assignments have been addressed with successful outcomes every time. They are excellent too at advising me on curricular and other training issues easily found at online training sites. Regular CPD online sessions have been provided regarding Safeguarding and other courses.

John Mc. Teacher, Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Chesterfield

Registering with Schoolhouse was a great decision. The team of consultants are friendly, professional and the lines of communication are always open. They welcome feedback about your bookings too. 

Any specific work requests, are listened to and Claire and the team, do their utmost, to make sure those requirements, are fulfilled. 

I have been given the chance to work within my subject specialism and to also gain experience, in teaching throughout the various year groups, key stages and sectors, to broaden my knowledge and skillset. 

There are also opportunities for regular CPD, to keep your CV up to date and current. 

I thoroughly recommend registering with Schoolhouse Recruitment. 

Mrs Charlton-Myers, Middlesbrough

” School House have given me some excellent opportunities. The friendly and professional nature of all School House staff has given me confidence required to focus on what’s important – enjoying and succeeding in my teaching”.

Mark W, Stockton

I have worked with School House for some time now and have experienced a busy schedule of work which has dovetailed very well with my family responsibilities. The team are always polite, supportive and keen to find work for me, suitable to my teaching preferences. I would happily recommend this agency to anyone who is looking to secure supply work in the Sheffield/South Yorkshire area.

School House is fantastic and lovely staff in the office they always do their best to get work for you to suit your needs. 

Mrs Warriner, Eaglescliffe

School House is a great agency. I’ve remained at the same lovely school in Sheffield for almost three terms now. Lucy and Andrew at the Sheffield office are always very friendly and helpful. I recommend the agency and I’m very happy teaching and working for School House.

Mrs Goddard, Teacher, Sheffield

I have enjoyed working for School House because I have developed a good relationship with both Andrew and Lucy, they have taken into account my situation and we have established good regular lines of communication. I have found that their approach has been very personal, whereas it has been quite the opposite at one of the other big supply agencies. They have also provided me with regular work, as much as I was looking for. I would thoroughly recommend School House for supply teachers

Darren Lynch, Supply Teacher, Chesterfield

I am a teacher with three years’ experience and for the last academic year I have worked as a supply teacher at a primary school in Sheffield, with my role focusing on a Year 3 job share and PPA/NQT cover. This was my first year as a supply teacher, and before making the change from a full-time classroom teacher to working as a supply teacher I took my time and researched my options. Through supply teacher websites and exploring internet forums School House Recruitment was consistently recommended because of their good rates of pay, the work they find, and their care for their supply team. It was an easy decision to sign with School House.

Rob Folmer, Supply Teacher, Rotherham

In my experience, School House were a wonderful agency to work for. I found the staff very personable and efficient. I felt that they made an effort to know me as a person and therefore were able to find work that best fit me. They passed on feedback from schools and were flexible and understanding.

Harriet Ives-Owen, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

I have always been very happy with the service School House have provided. As a supply teacher they have found me appropriate work in schools in my area. They have found the time to check in with me each week to ensure that I am OK with the placement and given me feedback from schools too. I would recommend them they are friendly and supportive.

Cathryn Smithson, Supply Teacher, Rotherham

School House have been incredibly helpful in finding me regular work in various schools across Sheffield. They keep in contact with you every week and provide a great service, ensuring that placements are suited to your preferences and needs. School House even found me placements during the lockdown period. I’m very grateful to have found them. 

Anjum Ahmed, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

Very professional friendly agency. Pay rates are some of the best around. They always keep in touch with a weekly phone call.

Peter Barnett, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

Marilyn Mitchell, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

I have worked for School House for the last few years and have found them professional, honest, friendly and an all round great supply agency to work for and I look forward to many years of service with them in the future too.

Sarah Cetinsoz, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

Working for School House has reignited my passion for teaching. After deciding to take a year break from teaching to enjoy spending time with my little boy I decided the best route back into teaching for me would be supply work. It was definitely the right decision. Lucy and Andrew are extremely supportive, professional  and really lovely people to work for. I am thoroughly enjoying my current post and I am looking forward to the future posts School House will find me. 

Miss Campbell, Supply Teacher, Rotherham 

Hi, my name is Jo, I have had the pleasure of working and being represented by School House for many years. The team are professional, caring and committed.

Right from the start Lucy and Andrew have always been very friendly, efficient and reliable, matching me with suitable schools and providing me with just the right amount of work. If I need help with anything they are always approachable  and happy to be of assistance. All in all, a very professional agency, but with the personal touch!

Ms Stanton, Primary School Teacher, Sheffield

A great, friendly Education Agency to work for.

Lucy and Andrew listen and have always tried to match me up with my criteria.  I have found them to be  flexible and understanding of my changing availability. If I was to find fault, it would be the football team Andrew supports …

Liz Rogerson, Supply Teacher, Sheffield

I’ve been with School House Recruitment for 5 years after leaving a full time position. They are highly professional and supportive. If you are looking for full time hours or just an odd day here and there to fit in with your lifestyle then I would highly recommend joining this agency.

Mrs Grant, Learning Assistant, Rotherham

I have found Schoolhouse to be an efficient, professional agency with a personal touch.  Assignments are discussed and supplied with appropriate, relevant information.  The weekly check-in (phone call) for future availability provides clarity for both parties and contributes to the “personal touch.”                                               

 Mrs Damms,  Supply Teacher,  Sheffield.

I have been a supply teacher for 6 years now and always worked with School House Recruitment. I have registered with other agencies too, but this one is fantastic in comparison. I am very happy with their professional attitude and ability to find suitable placements.

The staff are friendly, approachable and listen to your needs in all matters both in school and on a personal basis. They always communicate well and check in on you often.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others – and have done on many occasions!
