Display Advertising

We are in touch with what works when it comes to display advertising. Schools Week offers traditional space for adverts in the paper, but we also like to think creatively, both online and in print.

We have learnt a great deal from our sister title FE Week. Creative activity such as sponsored supplements, webinars and policy summits have been incredibly popular with readers and sponsors.

Schools Week will also offer these innovative ways to communicate with readers.

Every client is different, we get that. That is why you will also have the same account manager from initial enquiry to campaign review.

By advertising with Schools Week, not only will your adverts look stunningly crisp and clean on our 80gsm brilliant white newspaper, you will also know that you are successfully engaging with your target audience.
