GCSE results day – PR, web content and social media

GCSE results day is, without doubt, the busiest day in our calendar.

Working with many schools, we spend the weeks and days leading up to this important time ensuring our clients know exactly what we need from them and when so we get the very best possible publicity for them.

We collect the headline figures and quotes from our headteachers to release first thing on GCSE results day. Our journalists then spend the entire day meeting and interviewing students as they collect their results, picking up the very best human interest stories to help promote our client schools.

Take a look at the publicity we secured from GCSE results day this summer, including front page and page 3 coverage for client school BMAT STEM Academy

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

The Easter school holidays may have arrived in April, but it didn’t slow down the number of stories leaving KLC to promote our client schools.

We work with BMAT multi-academy trust each week to promote its primary and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London.

Our journalist visits the schools and gathers, writes and distributes positive news articles to the local, national and education media.

The month saw another wonderful piece of national publicity secured for our client, with BMAT featuring in a three-page feature in Teach Secondary magazine.

The editor was looking to put together a feature comparing two versus three-year Key Stage 3. She was keen to include strong examples of both sides and, through regular discussions with KLC, knew BMAT would fit the feature perfectly.

Giving a national voice to school clients

Working with schools, we have a couple of goals we strive to achieve: we want to raise the profile of our schools locally and keep their reputations positive to encourage parents to apply for places; as well as giving our clients a voice on the national education scene.

This month, we have given that voice to two more of our client schools with publicity within the pages of national magazine Teach Secondary.

Our client Helena Mills CBE is CEO of BMAT multi-academy trust, with primary and secondary schools in Essex and London. She was keen to voice her views about social media and the place it has – or may not have – in the industry. We secured a whole page in the magazine for Helena to comment. Take a look here..

We are also regularly asked to provide mock lesson plans from experts around the industry to be shared in the magazine. This month, it was the turn of our client school Thomas Lord Audley School, in Colchester, Essex, giving the school a chance to share its expertise on a national scale. Have a read here…

National publicity for more education clients this month

This month’s national education magazine Teach Secondary features articles from KLC promoting our school clients.

A three-page feature in the magazine – distributed to every school in the country – looking at the debate between a two or three-year Key Stage 3 in schools includes a comment piece from KLC client BMAT.

The multi-academy trust, with schools in Essex and London, runs a unique curriculum which sees students in Year 9 achieving GCSEs. The comment, written by our journalist on behalf of the CEO, provides wonderful publicity for our client.

National magazine commissions KLC feature for World Book Day

Working with a long list of school clients means KLC is the place editors turn to when they need education case studies and features.

Our journalist – Kelly Clark – is regularly commissioned to write features for the education media, using our extensive knowledge of and contacts within the sector.

Recently, we were asked to produce a one-page feature for Teach Primary, the national magazine, to give inspiration ahead of this month’s World Book Day. As ever, we had just the right school to fit the bill and focused on the work that goes on at client school Roydon Primary Academy, in Essex.

Take a look at the feature here…
