Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

We hit the ground running in September when it came to getting positive publicity for our school clients.

We work each week with the schools which make up the BMAT multi-academy Trust in Essex and London.

Our journalist visits the primary and secondary schools to gather, write and distribute news stories to the local, regional and education media.

In September, we arranged for BBC Look East to film at BMAT STEM Academy, in Harlow, Essex, to earn them some wonderful publicity as a brand-new school.

School news magazines and internal communications

While schools produce prospectuses to communicate vital facts and figures with interested parents, we believe sharing lots of wonderful news stories is an even better way to sell a school.

That’s where our school news magazines come in. We produce eight or 16-page news magazines for our school clients, packed full with positive news articles and smiley photos of children achieving and happy.

For some of our multi-academy trust clients, we also handle their internal communications by producing an alternative news magazine with updates for colleagues across their organisation.

Take a look at just some of our recent publications, for Trinity Primary Academy in Wood Green, London; the Sigma Trust in north Essex; and Nightingale Academy in Edmonton, London…

At KLC, we take on the entire process of gathering and writing the content, collecting images, designing and printing the publications for our clients. All our clients have to do is approve the design before it goes off to print.

If your school or multi-academy trust could benefit from this kind of communication with existing or prospective parents or its employees, get in touch on words@kellylouiseclark.co.uk to discuss.

Copywriting for corporate internal communications

We are skilled at writing for any publication and to any audience. With more than 20 years’ experience working in newspaper journalism and both external PR and internal communications, we can adapt our writing style to suit our clients’ needs.

We are regularly commissioned to send our journalist out to visit Anglian Water sites, to find out about individual projects to share across the business on the pages of internal magazine, @One.

Our journalist interviews key team members on site to gather the information and quotes to produce double-page features.

Take a look at the most recent features, produced by KLC…

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…

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

School may be out for summer, but there was no sign of our clients winding down during July.

We work with BMAT, the multi-academy Trust, to secure positive publicity for its schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted in Essex and Newham in London.

Our journalist spends two days each week within the schools to gather up positive articles to write and share with the local, national and education media.

In July, we secured a slot on BBC Essex for BMAT school Forest Hall Academy.
