Schools Week has quickly become a primary source of news for thousands of professionals working across the schools and education sector. Its rapidly growing presence in the community is rare for a newspaper in its infancy, but is a clear indication of bigger things to come over the coming years.

Schools Week is a weekly printed newspaper that readers know will not hold back in providing them with investigative and in-depth news articles.

The editorial team is packed with talented and experienced journalists and under the guidance of editor Laura McInerney, readers know that the paper will ask the tough questions, find the debatable point, tell the difficult truth and always put schools first.

The newspaper is read by a highly influential and aspirational demographic from across the schools sector in England. From school head teachers to multi-academy trust executives, from school governors to school business managers and from public relation professionals to teachers; we are proud of the diverse readership that we have engaged in a short period.

Schools Week prides itself in being the first to report on the news that matters and in the space of just over 18 months it has become part of the sector’s daily routine — whether that be checking schoolsweek.co.uk for the latest breaking news stories, reading through the weekly newspaper on a Friday morning, or scouring through the job ads (plus the online jobs board) for the latest career opportunities.

The newspaper has come a long way. The team has expanded. The stories have become bigger and juicier. The weekly website audience has grown at an incredible pace, from hundreds to hundreds of thousands a week. The recruitment advertising section has grown. And our creative opportunities for our display clients have engaged well known sector brands such as OCR, City and Guilds, Pearson, BBC Learning and SSAT enabling them to engage with an influential audience.

As Schools Week is aimed at influencers, aspiring leaders and decision makers, the title communicates on a weekly basis with a highly influential and targeted audience.

The title is distributed to individual subscribers and on a multiple subscription basis (whereby whole organisations subscribe), as well as key decision makers within the sector.

This, coupled with the newspaper’s expert sector knowledge and regular specialist supplements, events and sponsorship opportunities gives you unrivalled channels when reaching out to influential members of the schools community.

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.
