If you need advice on marketing and promoting your school or college we can help. Whether you need to communicate a key message, promote an event or inspire your pupils, Hive offer beautifully designed and effective solutions.

open days

Hive can provide a range of solutions to advertise your open days with creative designs to help you stand-out. Choose from flyers, press adverts, PVC banners or bus rear posters.

ofsted booklets

An ideal way to communicate Ofsted findings with parents and carers. We can create an easy to read, succinct summary of your Ofsted report into a colourful A5 booklet. Hive gather the most pertinent quotes from your report with input from the school. Highlighting both the positive comments and the ways in which the school is improving. We can use your existing images or we can undertake a new photography shoot to give you a wealth of images to use again and again. Our Ofsted booklets have great feedback from both parents and schools alike. They are used long after the immediate need to inform parents of the report, as they make for great piece of marketing for the school. We can either undertake the print of the booklets for you. Or alternatively, supply artwork that you can pass to your own printer.


Outdoor PVC banners or indoor pull up banners are a great way to communicate with the local community. So you can let people know about your Ofsted rating, application deadline or your new reading initiative. We design eye catching graphics and organise the print onto numerous sizes for you to simply attached to your school railings. Our pull up banners are also a very poplar choice for school reception areas, events and conferences.

leaflets, postcards and newsletters

We can design bespoke eye-catching leaflets or postcards to any size or shape. These are perfect to promote an event or service you are offering. If you need a newsletter template creating to make your weekly or monthly news look that much more professional and exciting, Hive can help. We can also design, print and deliver each issue of your newsletter for you, ll you need to do is forward your content. Leave the rest to us.

bespoke campaigns

We can take a simple brief from a school to ‘increase pupil’s motivation to read’ and deliver a whole campaign. This may include posters, incentive devices such as badges and book marks to creating a whole new exciting reading corner. We ensure that all these elements work together to help your school deliver positive outcomes for your particular need.

what our clients say about us

“The work done by Hive before the opening of our new two form entry primary school has been a major factor in our success. Creating a process by which all stake holders were involved in the naming and branding of our new school has meant that three different school communities have been successfully brought together.

Hive showed great creativity and understanding and at all times listened to what we wanted. This combined with great service and value for money has been central to us returning for further work such as leaflet and prospectus design.”
