National education magazine commissions KLC feature

The latest issue of Teach Primary, the national education magazine, includes a double page feature by KLC journalist Kelly Clark.

As we work closely with numerous schools, we are often commissioned to write for specialist publications.

The latest article focuses on the Oasis Community Hub operated by St Mary Cray Primary Academy, in Bromley, Kent.

Our journalist interviewed the headteacher and put together the two-page feature, published this week.

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

It’s been another hugely busy month working with our education client, Burnt Mill Academy Trust.

The trust, which operates primary schools and secondary schools in Harlow, Epping and Stansted, Essex, employs the PR services of KLC with the mission to spread the word of the good work happening in its schools.

Our journalist spends time within the schools each week to gather positive stories to share with the local, national and education media.

Take a look at just some of the publicity secured for the client by KLC in the last month…

Rich List’s Bill Ives’ final interview before his death – by KLC

We were honoured earlier this year to be asked to carry out an interview with one of the country’s most successful businessmen, Bill Ives.

The man behind Rainham Steel, based in Essex, had donated £1m to Havens Hospices to become a founder of a new adult hospice which is being built.

Our journalist, Kelly Clark, was the last to interview Bill as he sadly died a few weeks later.

The feature, written by our journalist, appears in the latest issue of Essex Life magazine.

Essex Life – Bill Ives

We are honoured to have carried out Bill’s last interview and were very sad to hear of his death. Our thoughts are with his family and colleagues.

Providing PR services to multi-academy trust

We have worked for many years with the Burnt Mill Academy Trust, which looks after 11 schools in Essex and London.

This September, our services to the Trust stepped up a gear and we now provide PR services to the group of schools several days each month.

Our journalist spends time in each of the schools to collect positive news stories which are then written and distributed to the local, national and education media to earn publicity for the Trust.

Take a look at just some of the recent publicity we have secured for the Trust…

National education magazine features by KLC

We are regularly called upon by editors to write features for national education publications.

Working for many years with school clients, handling their PR and communications, our journalists are well placed to produce content in this area.

Take a look at the most recent articles, written by our journalist Kelly Clark, which have appeared in Teach Secondary and Technology & Innovation magazines and tackle topics such as how schools are managing to keep subjects such as music on an ever-challenging curriculum; and how schools are using technology in clever ways to engage parents…

Technology and Innovation – clever tech

We are also able to bring national publicity opportunities to our school clients via these same links, as we have done recently here…

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…

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!
