Why World-Class Marketing, Branding and PR are Critical to Combat Ever-Decreasing School Admissions

The Education Showroom is delighted and honoured to partner with Blue Apple Education, the number one solution provider for school marketing, communications and designs that produce outstanding results to help transform school admissions and drive school and Trust growth.

Multi Academy Trusts face increasing pressure to ensure that they have effective and professional marketing and communications strategies in place. More than 75% of trusts do not currently meet the Government’s definition of a “strong & stable trust” and as most develop challenging growth targets, they need confidence in their ability to effect change.

Blue Apple Education is a creative design company working exclusively in Education who support Trusts & schools to develop and communicate a brand identity that resonates with prospective new schools and parents. 

Extensive research into the state of education marketing and the frustrations faced by Trust and school leaders has allowed Blue Apple Education to develop innovative and practical solutions that not only showcase the “remarkable” in each setting but are also designed to drive enquiries from schools looking to join a Trust and also prospective new parents and staff. 

Blue Apple Education offers unique, all inclusive subscription models which support the development of realistic budgets for marketing a Trust and its schools. Blue Apple Education support Trusts to move away from traditional project based spending, in favour of targeting solutions that will provide the greatest impact and measurable returns on investment.
