A right Royal appointment at school

In the world of journalism, we get to work alongside some wonderful people, both Joe Public and names from the world of celebrity.

Journalist Kelly with Arthur Edwards

When one of our school clients invited Royal photographer Arthur Edwards along to speak to students, we were keen to get along and meet the man who has given us an insight into Royal life for 38 years.

We also knew his appearance at the school, when the Royals are headline news, would attract some great publicity.

We invited and hosted BBC Look East TV crew at the visit who filmed Arthur’s talk and interviewed both him and some students for the evening’s news programme.

This is what Outstanding looks like

What better news to hear from your school client than the fact they’ve been graded as Outstanding by Ofsted?

Better than that, the school – which just three years ago was failing with just 26% of students achieving five or more GCSE passes – is now flying so high the Government has asked for it to share its secrets of success with local primary schools.

We act as Media Consultants for Burnt Mill Academy, in Harlow, Essex. We were delighted to release this national story and have taken inquiries from newspaper, radio and TV journalists.

Here’s the local coverage in the Harlow Star newspaper… Burnt Mill news in Harlow Star

‘Good’ school, great publicity

There can be no greater news for a school than when Ofsted inspectors upgrade their quality status.

So, when our client The Helena Romanes School, in Great Dunmow, Essex, was finally judged to be “good” by Ofsted inspectors, it was something wonderful to shout about.

Our journalist visits the school once a fortnight to gather up their positive news to share with the local press.

What a lovely way to bring the year to a close, with news which will fill staff, students and parents with joy.
