Discover the FIVE main styles of school video,
and which one is going to be right for your school
Hundreds of schools in the UK rely on video as a key part of their marketing – isn’t it about time you joined them?
Years ago, words sold, then photos, and now videos. Times change, and school marketing changes too.
The private school sector has been using video on their websites for years now, and with COVID 19 making open days and show arounds all but impossible in 2020, many state schools have been racing to catch up.
Over the last 12 months, our specialist team has helped dozens of schools to capture the perfect professional video to sit right in the centre of their marketing strategy.
The right video will help your school to attract new students, engage with parents, and attract high-calibre teaching staff.
We’ll work with you to capture the true essence of your school and present it in the best possible light.
Who knows what the next 12 months will bring when it comes to your ability to welcome prospective students and parents into the school, but by making a fantastic video the centre piece of your website and social media you’ll be able to attract more people to any open day that you are able to run, and engage with those who aren’t able to attend.
With our tried and tested processes, making a fantastic video of your school couldn’t be any easier. The first step is to have a conversation, so get in touch today.

Who do we make School Videos for?
We create effective, high quality films for infant, junior and primary schools, senior schools in the state and independent school market, along with colleges and higher education.
Where do we work?
We are based in Essex, but work with schools for video and photography around the London and the home counties, including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Surrey, and Sussex. We have worked with several schools in Suffolk and Norfolk too.
Below are a few examples of just some of our recent school video work. Take a look through and discover that while we create different styles of school videos the one core value that shines through is our attention to detail and quality.
Style #1: Virtual Tour
We created this virtual tour video to showcase the extensive facilities at this school. Alongside this video, we filmed the headteacher giving her 20 minute Open Day talk.
“We are delighted with how the video has turned out – and loved the filming day. I’d be delighted for you to share the video and would absolutely recommend the team to anyone who wants to call us.”
Emma Dawson, Headteacher Thundersley Primary School
Style #2: Showreel
Our ‘sizzle spots’ are high impact, aspirational school videos with dynamic shots and key phrases, showcasing the very best bits of your school. These videos will showcase your school and its core values for several years.
“We love it and cannot wait to share it with our children, staff and parents.”
Mike Williams, Headteacher Trinity St Mary’s
Style #3: Virtual Open Day Tour Highlights
This style of school video is a mixture of virtual tour and a showreel. Led by the headteacher and interspersed with students. The school video below also has an original score, composed to the exact video.
“We have really enjoyed working with you all throughout the whole process. The filming day was such good fun and we know that you and Taylor gave our students a fantastic experience on that day too.”
Andrea Thorne, Head of Drama Boswells School
Style #4: Virtual Open Day Speeches
Longer speeches by the headteacher and key senior leadership team, these school videos compliment the virtual tours, showreels and virtual open day styles. More information heavy to really show parents and students why they should choose your school.
“Just in case Lisa hasn’t passed on our wonder and rapture about how the films turned out. It’s a great investment and I know they will have great impact. The team have made what would have been a rather painful and embarrassing experience a lot of fun and giggles! I hope you haven’t filled the diary up too much as we need to talk about Open Evening films for September!”
Jody Gee, Headteacher Anglo European School
Style #5: The All-Out Mini Movie
Create a school video that is very narrative lead and will last your school several years. The strong, emotive pull from this style of school video will really create a ‘feel’ for your school.
“A big thank you to you and your team , the film has been a great success as we launched it last night at our virtual open evening. It really encapsulates our 6th form. It was a new approach but we pulled it off.”
Mr Adam Thorne, Headteacher Davenant Foundation School
