Helen Maguire, School Business Manager
St Ambrose RC Primary School

We recently engaged One Education to help us to develop a communications strategy to better engage with the local community and we are already beginning to see the benefits, I am very pleased.

Alan Braven, Executive Head Teacher
Endeavour Federation

The marketing consultant provided some fantastic ideas, which I plan to put into practise, to help us market the school specifically to attract mid-year starts when a place became available. An invaluable 'fresh eyes' look at our existing marketing efforts, particularly at the work we do on social media, offered innovative ideas that we had not previously considered.
