Marketing for Academies

Marketing for new academies in Leicestershire

School - Academy signSchools in Leicestershire are at various stages of converting to academy status. While this is an exciting time for many schools, greater autonomy on a range of important services brings about many new challenges.

One such challenge is how to successfully and positively change the perception of the school as a traditional educational institution to that of a new academy, operating in an increasingly competitive educational marketplace.

Traditional marketing and promotional channels such as the school website and prospectus take on a vital role in ‘selling’ your school to new parents.

Now is the time to refresh the content of your marketing material ? both online and printed ? to better reflect the strategic vision of the new academy and ensure that interest from potential new students and their parents is converted into places allocated.

That’s where we can help.
