A School looking for Teachers?

"Helping Schools find Teachers and Teachers find Schools"

Education Recruitment Specialists in Somerset, England

Then A* Education, one of the South West's leading Education Recruitment Specialists can help you.


A* Education was established in 2007 by

Adam Thornton (pictured opposite).

A qualified Teacher who has worked in many Schools around Somerset.

We are a Somerset-based teacher recruitment agency that strives to provide an unbeatable service, with the friendliness and dedication of a locally-run family business, coupled with the professionalism and reliability of a national corporation.


As the sole Teacher/School consultant, I can offer a bespoke service, out-of-hours contact options and complete peace of mind that I will do my upmost to sort your every need, working around the clock when necessary and keeping you updated to the progress as and when and however suits you best.

We pay our teachers very competitively and look after them as valued employees, with an unrivalled personable service.

I personally have the benefit of knowing Somerset extremely well, having lived here my whole life. I have worked/visited most of the schools and can advise teachers on the quickest routes for travel and use my local knowledge to match up appropriate schools and teachers, unlike some of the bigger city-based agencies, who often employ generic recruitment consultants who have never worked within schools and do not know rural Somerset very well.

Is it for you?

If you are looking for permanent/temporary, full or part-time teaching work in or around Somerset, then the answer is; Yes.

We can cater for various people and roles, from NQTs looking to get into a permanent post, to anyone looking for work as a general supply teacher.

A* Education wants you to join us to help improve the quality and consistency of supply teaching in our area. We have a personable, friendly and focussed approach and very competitive daily rates for schools and teachers.

Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email to have a no pressure conversation about how we could help and what we can offer you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
