“I have had a wonderful year, you have all been an amazing team to work for. Everywhere I have worked, your agency has been highly complemented as the best agency. I have learned so much, developed both as a professional and individual, I have gained so much confidence, and through the opportunity you have given me I have found myself again.
I will definitely recommend you to everyone.”
Primary Teacher – Dartford
“ I would like to thank you for always placing high quality staff at our school, even when the notice has been very short. They are always professional and spend time to complete marking so that when the class teacher returns they are not faced with additional work. – I hope that we have a long working relationship in the future”
Deputy Head Teacher – Primary School – Bexley Borough
“Just wanted to say thank you for the good luck card that arrived with my pay slip today – such a lovely thought.
You have been a wonderful agency to work for, and I’ve already recommended you to friends, as I will continue to do so in the future. The professionalism of everyone there is great, but more than that everyone was so friendly and welcoming whenever I rang up, emailed or popped in. What a fab team you all make!”
Secondary Teacher – Sittingbourne
“I do thank you for your kind contributions to the schools Christmas Fair as well as the gifts that you left for me to share with the staff at our school. These were very generous gestures, totally unexpected! – I would also like to put on the record, that I have been most satisfied using Classic Education over the last couple of terms to meet the schools supply needs. Your teachers do you much credit and long may it continue.”
Administration Manager – Primary School – Bromley Borough
“Without ‘you guys’ the system would fall apart. You are always so ‘bright, chirpy and cheerful’ at ‘silly o’clock in the morning’. It continues to be a pleasure to be part of your organisation.”
Secondary Teacher – Faversham
“I have been working for Classic Education for 2 years now. From my very first telephone conversation and subsequent meeting I realised at once that this agency was different from the others that I had previously had contact with. Not only was everyone so friendly and personable, but it was evident that this was a very professional set up. I was proved to be absolutely right. – Classic Education care about the people who work for them and always endevour to match their needs and requirements. I am always well briefed about the school and class I am to teach and conversely the school always seem to know who they are expecting so there is always a warm welcome, which is nice when visiting a new school for the first time.
All in all, Classic Education make it their business to get to know their employees, providing a professional but very personal service, which sets them apart from other agencies that I have worked for.
Primary Teacher – Meopham
“Our school has used Classic Education services for about three years as an agency to provide long term cover from year 7 to year 11. – The service we have received has always been efficient, adaptable and reliable. They consider the schools needs and know us and the schools background which helps to send us suitable supply teachers. -Classic always provide a friendly professional relationship, and if they cannot help are always honest with a quick decision.”
Cover Manager – Secondary School – Gravesham
“Our school has used the services of this agency for years to the extent that they are our preferred agency. – They provide a prompt reliable friendly service at all times. Classic Education try and match the teacher to the schools particular needs for that day, or the particular period of time that the teacher is required for. – They are very understanding and have always listened to our request. – It has been a pleasure to deal with Classic Education and I appreciate the personal, calm touch they maintain, even the in the face of our frantic early morning phone calls. I have no hesitation in recommending Classic Education to another school.”

Special Needs Teacher – Thanet
“Our school has been receiving excellent service from Classic Education for the last one and a half years. They endeavour to match the supply teachers to our needs/year group etc. and do their best to provide the teachers that we have specifically asked for. – Classic Education has found us excellent supply teachers on a long term basis when we have experienced a sudden long term absence for maternity cover. – The children and staff enjoy regular supply teachers who cover PPA, these teachers are part of our school community – marking books, planning and even attending end of term lunches. – I have been most pleased with the service provided and will recommend to colleagues.”
Head Teacher – Primary School – Bexley Borough
“Classic Education is our schools first preference supply teaching agency because it provides a first class service. All their staff are helpful and professional. Feedback on teachers supplied is always welcomed and preferences for named teacher is taken into consideration and provided where possible. I am more than satisfied and keen to continue to use their service for the foreseeable future.”
PA to Head Teacher – Primary School – Medway
“I have been working with the staff of Classic Education for over two years now and have found everyone to be friendly, helpful and easily approachable. They have excellent understanding of the requirments and expectations of the schools they serve and the needs and abilities of the children. – They take great care to match your preferences of age range and geographical area with those required by the school and never put pressure to travel further than you wish or to teach outside your area of expertise. – My experience of working with other teaching agencies has been much less favourable and I now work solely with Classic Education.”
Primary Teacher – Gravesend
“Since I have been the Secretary at this school, Classic Education has always been our preferred choice of agency. We have always found them helpful and courteous to deal with, and also ready to listen to any special request that we may have. Whenever we have had the necessity to ring at short notice, they have always been very understanding and willing to assist. – The feedback from the members of our staff is that the supply teachers are often of a good standard, friendly and easy to work with. – When the need arises we have no hesitation to use Classic Education again and would certainly recommend them to others.”
Secretary – Infant School – East Kent
“Our school has been engaging Classic Education’s services since April 2005. We have used them to provide supply teachers for classes in our school from Year 3 to Year 6. They listen to our needs, so supply teachers are generally those who fit into our school ethos and we tend to use the same people, which builds up continuity for the school. It is of credit to the Classic team that our discussions are acted upon and as a customer a difference can be noted. – We use Classic Education as our first contact for supply and recommend them to colleagues, however, most importantly to us is the friendly yet professional relationship that the team provides. They know us, our school is not just a statistic in their books.”
Deputy Head Teacher – Junior School – Medway
“In the years that I have been with Classic Education, I have had no cause for complaint. I would not hesitate to advise schools and teachers to take advantage of their services”
