Candlestar developed a comprehensive communications strategy for the Strood Academy in 2009. The strategy was successful in enabling the Academy to effectively re-position itself within the local community and secure funding for its new premises. This has included improving and advising on internal communications, external media relation operations, as well as developing the website strategy, public affairs and stakeholder relations.
In May 2012, Candlestar was appointed to build and conduct an extensive parental survey in order to help the Academy understand their parents’ viewpoints when choosing secondary school for their children. The specialised questionnaire is based on capturing both qualitative and quantitative data, alongside a revision of the existing literature on parental choice.
On 13 December 2012, Strood Academy hosted the official opening ceremony in its new building where Zandra Rhodes, Chancellor of the University for the Creative Arts was the guest of honour.
Candlestar has a strong background in the education sector, and constantly adapts itself to provide the best strategies according to the vision and values of its clients. Our team is highly specialised in strategic communications, marketing, public relations and online learning.
