About Teachit

Teaching resources you can trust

By teachers, for teachers

Teachit has always been about supporting teachers and sharing resources. Founded by English teacher Siobhain Archer in 1999, it started as a tray in the corner of the staffroom. Now, it’s a thriving community of over 480,000 teachers sharing resources and finding inspiration.

In 2011, Teachit became part of educational charity AQA. During qualification reform and beyond, Teachit provided support with teaching and learning materials.

Teachit moved to new owners, Sandbox & Co. in 2020. Sandbox & Co. provides digital education products and services. They currently reach 60 million children, parents and teachers every month, in the UK and US, providing engaging and informative content and games.

We remain editorially independent and committed to publishing high-quality resources.

I can't pick from my MFL teachers! They were all incredibly engaging and really made me believe in myself. My enthusiasm for languages is undoubtedly down to them.

Jo Barwell

Primary teacher and Senior Content Lead

My favourite teacher was my RE teacher, Mrs Hinder. She was the most fun and sarcastic teacher in the school and always made her lessons incredibly engaging and inclusive (and she helped me get an A*!).

Lucy Castle

Teaching Assistant and Advertising Account Executive

One day my favourite English teacher (I can't remember her name!) asked me to read out a story I'd written to the class – It was, and still is, one of my proudest moments.

Lucy Hewitt

English teacher and Publishing Manager

Mrs Shall and Tony Scola were wonderful English teachers, who inspired a lifelong love of the subject. They shared books with me and believed in me, and I'll always be hugely grateful to them.

Kate Lee

English teacher and Senior Content Lead

When I first started secondary school I didn’t enjoy languages at all, but thanks to a couple of very energetic and engaging teachers I ended up loving them!

Sheena Newland

MFL teacher and Senior Content lead

Mrs Wiseman, my drama teacher, was the best! Her passion for the job and the way she taught was contagious! If there was an Award for the Best Teacher, I’m sure she would have got it! She was a true inspiration!

Liza Austin

Business Development Manager

The lovely Miss Monro was a bit unconventional and made English lessons fun. One memorable year, she encouraged us to write a summer panto and dreamt up the title 'Ali Baba and the murky tea leaves'.

Ann Bazley

Subscriptions Administrator Manager

Mrs Harvie, my maths teacher, was my favourite! She really believed in me and as Maths was not a particular strength of mine, she had endless patience too!

Maddie Butt

Advertising Account Manager

My favourite teacher was Mr Mac. He was one of the first teachers to see potential in me and encouraged me to believe in myself and aim higher. He also wore some very cool ties!

Jonny Davis

Website Developer

My favourite teacher has to be my A-Level law tutor, his laid back nature and ability to explain subjects in such an easy and interesting way, left me with a lifelong interest in law.

Kelly Frost

Advertising Account Manager

My favourite teachers were Mr Body and Mrs Toddman who taught music. They were so inspirational and spent countless hours helping me realise my creative potential.

Marysia Hawkins

Digital Product Manager

My favourite teacher was Brian, he was my lecturer at uni and was always there to help with not just uni but also life's little problems.

Jordan McLeod

Middleweight Website Developer

My most memorable teacher was my GCSE French teacher, Madame Helmore, who was a very small lady with a very big personality. She taught with fury and sarcasm but her unique ways of helping us to remember vocab still stick with me even now.

Megan Pitman

Customer Support Administrator

A teacher that stands out for me is my grumpy but very witty secondary school art teacher, Mr Elgey. His art room was full of weird and wonderful items collected over the years and I always looked forward to his classes.

Donna Symonds

Marketing Manager
