The Background

The James Hornsby School is a successful secondary school with over 800 pupils, based in Laindon, Essex.

Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, The James Hornsby School has much to offer students who choose to study there. However, this message was not being communicated enough to potential students and their parents, and the school was finding it increasingly difficult to stand out against its competitors.

How We Helped

As soon as we were approached to help with The James Hornsby School’s marketing, we realised its many positive aspects which needed to be communicated to the wider community.

By refreshing the school’s branding, re-designing the website, overhauling the school prospectus, and even undertaking a dedicated advertising campaign, The James Hornsby School now enjoys a more sophisticated brand and an enhanced reputation in the local community.
