“We received excellent HR support from Capita throughout a complex and difficult staffing issue. A real strength of the service provided by Capita was the advice from our relationship manager which was calm, consistent and completely reliable at all times”.

Welcome to Capita HR Services for the education sector.

With more than 20 years’ experience and a monthly payroll run of more than 88,000 teachers and support staff, Capita HR solutions provides a seamless, cost-effective service to the education sector:


Our team

Our specialist team is dedicated to the education sector, providing specialist HR expertise to schools, academies and trusts. As a Capita client, you can be assured you will have a UK based support from a team that is familiar with your institution; making it easy to work together on a day-to-day basis.

We recognise that a personal service is important. All our education sector clients have a dedicated Client Relationship Manager who will be in regular contact, and who will be personally familiar with your policies and procedures; ensuring continuity and consistency in HR.


“I have been working with Capita for some time now, and I have always found the service to be excellent. The advice from the payroll team is always very detailed and helpful.”

Our technology

Our dedicated education experts are our most important asset. However, we have equally impressive technology to support our service. The Capita HR team will work with you to interpret reports and take action, helping you to get a better return on HR activities and to make meaningful use of management information.

Capita also provides the only truly SIMS integrated solution. What does this mean?

If your school uses SIMS, this means no double entry of data and any changes made on the SIMS personnel module will automatically exchange to our data centre overnight, reducing the risk of error, duplication, and making the system work more effectively.

Our clients have access to an online self-service portal that enables employees to view online payslips, access the Knowledgebase for policies and procedures, and use the AskHR function to contact the HR team. Self-service reduces the number of queries to HR and streamlines access to information across multiple sites.



We provide payroll, HR administration and HR advisory services to schools, academies and trusts as well as a wide range HR training courses for teaching staff, managers, head teachers and governors.

Our training can be delivered in-house as a bespoke course or you can attend one of our nationwide training centres.

“Linda has brought a high level of expertise and has provided excellent advice, challenge, guidance and support throughout. The work certainly means we are committed to buying in HR support from you for the foreseeable future.”
