In order to get their attention on social media, you’ll need to show what sets you apart from the other schools. No matter what Social media platform you use, you need to show your pupil’ achievements, experience, and personal developments through the content that’s being shared on social media. Social media is a great place to display the wonderful atmosphere of your institutions and the amazing start in life it gives your pupils.
Most UK independent schools are active on three or more social media network but only spend between 1-5 hours per week on social media – which isn’t enough for a strong social media presence. If there isn’t enough in-house resource to spend time of each individual Social media channel, it is best to choose just one or two platforms.
