The Company: Aquinas Education Ltd

Aquinas Education is a unique education recruitment agency based in the UK. We specialise in sourcing, supplying and supporting our supply staff on a personal level, making sure that they share the same objectives and ethos we strive to give in our individual approach.

Saint Thomas Aquinas is the Patron Saint of Education, which is where our name originated from.

Our ethos is quite simple; we strongly promote ambition within schools and educational environments. We are ambitious for our pupils, schools, teachers and other educational workers in an ethical and modern setting. We want to promote the positive meaning of the phrase “to be ambitious”.

Not only do we supply the most competent teachers and support staff around, we also give back to the schools by offering a reward scheme, continued support and the chance for positive role models to visit the schools individually. Working within the education sector we believe schools deliver a very high standard of care and teaching. We endeavour to match these aspirations by providing a highly professional service and the best staff available.
