Attracting local and international students - Building your exclusive brand



Case Study: “Find yourself at King’s” – Insights from 2017 King’s College’s marketing campaign


Many Independent Schools have marketing campaigns in place, but what do they really need to remain visible in such a competitive environment?


King’s College delved into its market research feedback and built its 2017 campaign reflecting the criteria prospective families look for in their choice of school. The campaign is about promoting the King’s College brand, and the students who represent their all-round education philosophy. In this presentation, Jeanette shares learnings relevant to other private schools eager to strengthen their branding and move their marketing strategy to the next level.

Director of Marketing and Development, King's College
