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…

Preparing for a new school year

In just a few days’ time, our schools will once again be full of life and buzzing for a fresh new academic year ahead.

While the summer has meant a break for many students, our client schools have still been busy with summer schools, exam results days and training days which means we have been kept busy, too.

We work closely with schools in and around Essex and London to provide PR services, to produce news magazines and to fill school websites with stories and articles.

Take a look at just some of the recent publicity we have secured for our school clients…

National craft magazine commissions KLC feature

With 21 years of experience in journalism, we are able to turn our hands to any topic and write for any audience.

So, when the editor at national craft magazine, Craft Business, commissioned us to write a one-page feature on specialist yarns, it was a unique but simple task.

Guardian commissions KLC education feature

What a great start to the summer – a commission by the Guardian newspaper for KLC to produce an education feature.

We work with lots of schools as well as education publications to spread the word about the many wonderful and unique things going on in education.

The Guardian commissioned our journalist, Kelly Clark, to produce a feature looking at how schools today are collaborating as a way of saving money and resources.

Latest school news magazines published

As our school clients packed up for the summer break, parents and staff were given a round-up of the last few months via our news magazines.

We produce news magazines for our school clients to keep their communities informed of the many wonderful projects, achievements and news items their children are involved with.

Our journalist visits the schools on a regular basis to collect and write articles and then we work with our design and print partners to produce glossy, colourful magazines in whatever size, pagination and print run our clients request.

To sign off the end of the school year, our clients the Sigma Trust – which looks after seven schools in north Essex – and Nightingale Academy, in Edmonton, London, distributed the latest KLC publications to parents, staff and stakeholders.

We will now work through the summer break to produce news magazines for two education trust clients with audiences across 12 schools.

If your school communities could benefit from communication in this way, get in touch on words@kellylouiseclark.co.uk to discuss the easy process where we handle every step and simply ask for your approval before print – it’s that simple!

Glowing national publicity for school client

We are thrilled with this three-page glowing report in a national publication on client school Clacton County High School, arranged by KLC.

We invited the editor of national education magazine Teach Secondary to visit our client school to write an in-depth feature on her views of what she found at the Sigma Trust secondary.

Our journalist escorted the editor and photographer around the school as every aspect of the teaching and learning and future plans was put under the microscope.

Getting school news in print

We love helping our school clients to get their positive news in print and helping to develop and keep great reputations.

Our journalist visits our client schools on a weekly, fortnightly, monthly or ad-hoc basis to collect stories on the various events and achievements we know readers would be interested in.

Having worked in the newspaper industry for 21 years, we know how to write the stories which will make headlines and who to speak to on the publications to make it happen.

Here are just a few of the pieces of publicity we have secured for our school clients recently…

Getting your business news in print

Promoting your business through the local press can be a tough job.

We are often approached by business owners who are keen to get their name out there, but who have tried and failed to achieve publicity themselves.

At KLC, we have more than 21 years’ experience of working for and with newspapers and so we know what they want, how they want it and when they want it and can deliver the copy which will make the headlines.

All you have to do is spend a few minutes talking to our journalist, approve the copy and leave the rest to us.

Here are just a few recent examples of where we have helped our business clients to get their names in print…

Front page publicity for tearoom client

Thrilled to have once again secured front page publicity for a client this week.

Scrumptious Tearooms, in Essex, came to KLC for help achieving publicity in the local press. They had tried themselves several times with little success.

It was our pleasure to use our journalism skills and contacts to turn their latest news into a story the local newspaper editor would want to publish.

The very next day, the story – written by our journalist – appeared on page 3, with a large front page plug.

We had the same great results with another story for the tearoom recently, securing a page 2 slot within hours of being approached by Scrumptious…
