Our ‘Friday Find’ this week comes from Hurtwood House, a Sixth Form-only school that evidently knows its audience.

The School’s strapline is ‘The most exciting school in England’. Quite the claim.

Yet in just 15 seconds this quick-cut video on their Facebook page packs a real punch. It demonstrates their key message with a combination of music, graphics and, most importantly, pupils engaged in a range of exciting, challenging activities. 

The School is unashamedly harnessing pester power by aiming the video at prospective pupils themselves – those young people currently in Years 10 or 11 who are considering their next step at 16+. And, coupled with their unconventional and bold strapline, it’s really making them stand out.

If only we were 16 again…

‘Til next time
