Schools Zone – Connect With Parents

Since launching in May 2016, Educators has gone from strength to strength, quickly becoming a go-to source of information on independent schools in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Educators is imminently expanding its school listings and audience to the south of England, and with this comes the launch of premium listings!

Upgrading to a premium listing allows your school to capture the attention of parents, displaying your very best features AND driving new inquiries via contact details, web links and an in-page form which goes straight to your admissions staff.

Basic Listings

All schools listed on Educators get a free basic listing with minimal content, which will inform parents of your existence, but likely not drive any serious interest compared to premium profiles.

Basic listings are without contact details, web links, images, video or other promotional upgrades. Basic listings also DO include links to other school’s listings in prominent positions.

Premium Listings

Schools can upgrade to a premium listing which focuses on selling your school’s best features to parents to ensure you’re one of (if not the only) school they consider.

A premium listing drives parents to take one of the following key actions:

  • Visit the school website via prominently featured hyperlinks
  • Fill out an inquiry form on the premium listing which is sent directly to admissions staff
  • Get in touch directly via the listed contact details
