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.

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.

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

If your school could benefit from sharing its good news with its community, get in touch on words@kellylouiseclark.co.uk to find out how easy it is to hand the whole production over to KLC.

Front page publicity for KLC school client!

Thrilled today to have secured the front page of a new client’s local newspaper, earning them wonderful publicity.

We recently started working with Nightingale Academy, in London, with the mission of helping to boost the improving school’s reputation and, over time, increase student numbers.

The first step was to interview the principal who was brought in to the school 18 months ago to turn around its fortunes. Our journalist produced a strong story talking about the journey so far and the principal’s promise to make the once struggling school Ofsted-rated Outstanding.

Our first attempt at gaining publicity for the school resulted in a front page splash on this week’s Enfield Independent newspaper – an incredible result for a school which has not featured in the press for some time.

National publicity for KLC school client

While many of our school clients are keen to raise their profile and boost their reputation locally, some already have that in hand and want to put themselves on the map nationally.

Clacton County High School, in Essex, is one of those schools. The local press already cover their good news well and so KLC were brought on board to spread the word further afield.

This month’s Teach Secondary – a national industry publication – features an article by a member of teaching staff at the school sharing their ideas for a unique lesson in modern foreign languages.

Take a look at the in-magazine and online publicity secured for the school by KLC…

Parents and staff in touch with school news

A product we are very proud of at KLC is the school news magazine. Many of our school clients benefit from this product, bursting full of photos and stories of young people aiming high and achieving.

Our client the Sigma Trust, in Essex, is the latest to opt for a school news magazine, working with KLC to produce two publications – one aimed at parents, the other targeting staff and stakeholders. As a newly formed Trust, the magazine is a great way of introducing the community to the set-up of the group of schools and the journey they are on together.

The entire production of these magazines is handled by KLC, from the story creation, image gathering and page planning to the design, proofreading, print and delivery.

KLC school features in Guardian article

While our school clients are predominantly interested in securing local publicity to help attract new students, they are also keen to spread the word about their work to a national audience.

So, when our contacts on the Guardian newspaper were looking to feature schools who locally source their food, we knew we had just the case study.

As a result, KLC client school Maltings Academy, in Essex, features in the online article.

National education magazine features KLC school

We work with many school clients keen to not only boost their reputation among local families, but to also show the rest of the education community what they are capable of and achieving.

Our links with national education media means we can help our clients to share their expertise with all other schools around the country.

This month’s Teach Secondary magazine, which is delivered to schools nationwide, features a double-page spread publicising the talent at KLC client school Clacton County High, in Essex.
