School Open Day fast approaching and still no prospectus?



We know school’s out for Summer, but your looming School Open Days are probably at the back of your mind… and if you haven’t organised a new school prospectus then you could be missing a trick. So many schools now rely solely on their website as their primary source of information for parents, students and other stakeholders. But to have something tangible to give to prospective families looking around your school which they can take away is still a great thing to have – and often expected.



Communicate exactly the message you want

Putting your school prospectus together needn’t be a big task. In fact, if you’ve got a content rich website, you’ll find most of the work has already been done! You just need to pick out the key information you want to include and work it into a prospectus format. Here’s what we advise to include:

  • School Name
  • Address
  • Contact information
  • Website address
  • Type of school
  • Name of Headteacher
  • Name of Chair of Governing Body
  • Term dates
  • School values and ethos statement
  • Curriculum statement including teaching methods and details for those with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and SEN policy
  • Statement from Headteacher
  • Information about admissions
  • Attendance data
  • Latest National Curriculum assessment results for Key Stages 1,2 and 3 as appropriate
  • Examination results
  • Content and organisation of sex education policy
  • Supporting quotes from students, parents and faculty
  • Full faculty list
