Schools use PR agencies for a variety of reasons. It could be for promotion, to encourage new student registrations, or for crisis PR prevention. If there have been issues with drugs or bullying, or maybe to react to changes in Ofsted. There are a variety of reasons that you would benefit from media support. This is why many schools choose to talk to an experienced PR agency that knows the education sector. If the agency has had dealings with the department of education, this will be very beneficial.
Prices vary, mainly on the basis of the kind of campaign that each school needs, why they need it, and for how long it might run for. Also, each PR agency has their own fee structure with different profit margins, which also affects the PR prices. As all price comparison websites, we do encourage shopping around and comparing quotes.
There are thousands of PR companies around the UK. But it is strongly recommended that you should select one that has experience in the education industry. If the agency already has a background in education, it should result in a better campaign that produces quicker results. Using a PR company that has a strong background in PR for banks (or another sector) just does not make logical sense.
