Prospectus videos: simple, effective schools marketing

A video can showcase a school better than any brochure, photo gallery or website.

It’s affordable, effective and it will create a buzz for your school. It may even win you ‘street cred’ with the pupils!

The video can be used online via the website or social media. Or you can produce copies for stakeholders, the local community and future parents.

Videos can be hosted on YouTube or Vimeo, and embedded on your school website or social media accounts - spreading the word about how good your school is.
