In recent years there’s been a massive change in the way schools are organised, managed and judged. We’ve worked with individual schools, Academy groups and independent schools to help them to build their reputations, to communicate effectively, to consult with local communities, and to address reputation threats – as well as provide ongoing support for student attraction and recruitment at this time of change.
As a member of the Department for Education’s roster of PR agencies we have been carefully vetted as a provider to Government on education issues. We sponsor the Education Media Centre, the Education Journalist of the Year Awards and have raised funds for several schools charities.
Our schools client list includes: GEMS Education, Active Learning Trust, Cambridge Centre for Sixth Form Studies, Friern Barnet School and Ardeley Primary School. In addition to working with the schools and colleges themselves, we also work with school partners and suppliers (ranging from those who provide private and supportive tuition and learning) to online learning providers and specialist subject experts, charities and think tanks. Many of our consultants have served as school governors or members of advisory boards and bodies associated with schools and their partners.

“Communications Management is one of our key strategic partners. We brought Communications Management on board in 2013 when the Trust sponsored five schools and today we oversee 19. Communications Management provide strategic counsel and support the Trust with media relations at both regional and sector levels. Their work has been vital to us as we have built both our reputation as a Trust and the reputations of our schools.”Gary Peile
