Marketing your Independent School
Diverse range of Channels
Unfortunately, it is no longer enough to use a single channel to target prospective parents and students. We'll carry out extensive research to ensure we're using the right channels to target your prospective parents, for each campaign.
Varied Target Market
"Prospective Parents" is not so much of a collective term these days. Many parents will have different Choice Factors in mind when deciding on a school and therefore each one will require targeted communications to ensure the messages remain relevant.
Decision Making Process
Every prospective parent is different meaning each decision making process will vary slightly. Some may only require one school visit, others will carry out more research so we'll work with you to ensure that at every "touch point" your school completely shines!

Independent School Marketing

The Independent school market place is becoming more competitive, with prospective parents facing more choice than ever before with regards to their child’s future education. As a result, many Independent schools are reliant on creating powerful brands and adopting strong school marketing strategies.

Your brand and image are crucial when thinking about student recruitment for the new academic year. At FSE Design, we’re experts at working with you to develop your school branding that will help communicate who you are to the people that matter.

Starting with logo and brand guideline design, we’ll create a brand that will transfer seamlessly throughout your school website design, school prospectus brochure, school signage, social media, marketing campaigns and other materials – leaving you with a professional image that ensures your school stands out.

Prospectus Brochures

Despite the shift towards digital technology, many independent schools are adopting a new marketing strategy focused around social media alongside a printed prospectus brochure campaign. This in turn has had a promising effect on independent schools reaching audiences quickly and efficiently.

At FSE Design, we provide a full prospectus service. From school photography that makes your grounds, facilities and students shine; carefully crafted content to be the voice of your school and accentuate your strengths; through to outstanding design and first class, quality printing. With 13 years' experience, we know what works!

Website Design

As one of the first places prospective parents will look to find information, your website provides a first and lasting impression of your school – an impression which is crucial when competition for pupil numbers is higher than ever.

Your website should provide a unique window into life at your school, highlighting your strengths and achievements, reflecting your ethos and communicating your messages to the people that matter. We specialise in building striking, user-friendly websites that use the very latest technology and are fully responsive as standard. Take a look at our portfolio to see some of our recent work.
