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

As well as ensuring our clients received the very best publicity as a result of GCSE results day, we also kept their websites and social media pages full of wonderfully positive stories…

A-level results day – PR, web content and social media posts

A-level results day is one of the busiest times of the year for us at KLC as we work to promote our education clients.

In the weeks and days leading up to A-level results day in August, we prep our sixth form clients to provide us with all the information we need, when we need it, to enable us to secure the very best publicity from this important day.

We gather the headline results from our clients, as well as quotes from key staff before speaking with students as they collect their results to give plenty of human interest stories to sit alongside the figures.

Our journalist writes and releases press releases to the media first thing on A-level results day.

Helping schools to hit the headlines – for the right reasons

At a time when schools are facing tough budget restraints against increased pressure to succeed, it’s more important than ever for them to have the best possible reputation.

Good reputation leads to increased pupil numbers which gives a school’s budget a significant boost.

One way to achieve this is to invest in PR services.

Many schools prioritise an investment in PR with KLC as they feel it is the best way to keep their name in the headlines for the right reasons to attract parents to show an interest in their school.

Take a look at just some of the publicity we have secured for our school clients, helping to keep them in a positive light in the media…

Earning publicity for school clients’ exam results

Working with schools is a year-round job for KLC.

Every week, we work closely with our school clients with the mission of securing as much positive publicity for them as possible.

The summer, though, brings two of the very best opportunities to promote our schools – A-level and GCSE results days.

Our journalist handles the release of all our school clients’ exam results, as well as interviewing students to put together interesting case studies editors are always looking out for. Indeed, we are approached each year by editors and producers who know we will provide them with the very best news stories during this annual event. It is not unusual for TV and radio crews to arrange to visit our schools as part of their exam results coverage each year.

Take a look at just some of the wonderful publicity we secured for our clients this year, including radio, TV, online and in-print coverage…

Exam results bring KLC schools publicity

It was a busy summer for KLC as we helped various school clients to release their A-level and GCSE results to the media.

With changes to the way English and maths GCSE exams are now graded, we saw both the schools and journalists enter new territory when it came to releasing and reporting on the results.

But, despite the challenge that brought, we were thrilled to still secure plenty of great publicity – including this front page splash for Nightingale Academy, in London…

Take a look at some of the publicity secured for our school clients’ exam results this summer…

KLC launches another school news magazine

Another of our school clients has signed up to our news magazines.

We produce news magazines for a number of schools, helping them to share their good news and information with students, parents, prospective parents, teachers, staff, stakeholders and the community.

Nightingale Academy, in London, is the latest to commission KLC to produce a news magazine on its behalf.

Issue 1 is available all around the school and community now, while Issue 2 is being put together at the moment for the summer by our journalist, designer and printer.

Have a look at the content here… The Edge

We have also recently produced the eighth school magazine for Maltings Academy with partner school New Rickstones Academy, in Witham.

GCSE results day publicity

GCSE results day brought another wonderful opportunity to secure extensive publicity for our school clients.

Our journalist spent two days working with our school clients, pulling together their GCSE results and case studies to share with the local, national and education media.

It was great to see all of our clients recording their best set of results and receiving such glowing press reports.

Great publicity for A-level results day

The highlight of our year working with our school clients has to be exam results time.

The atmosphere in schools on both A-level and GCSE results days is electric and it’s great to see all the hard work rewarded, for both students and staff.

Yesterday was A-level results day and so our journalist spent the morning mingling with nervous students at Witham Sixth Form – the combination of our client schools Maltings Academy and New Rickstones Academy, in Witham, Essex.

Along with the usual crop of top-achieving students, we picked up some heartwarming stories about young people achieving despite adversity.

The stories were jumped on by local and national media and appeared online immediately.

Publicity for school clients

KLC works closely with a number of school clients to help them to get their positive news published.

By sharing great news stories, we are able to give our schools a boost in reputation with the mission of encouraging parents to enrol their children.

For every student a school has on its books, extra money is added to their budget. That’s why, despite tough financial times within education, many schools still find publicity a vital area to invest in.

Take a look at just some of the recent great publicity secured for our clients with articles written by our journalist…
