Doubling pupil intake after the first year of opening

A comprehensive communications strategy delivered by Athene Communications helped Stamford Welland Academy to substantially increase its pupil intake in its first year of opening.

Stamford Welland Academy’s ethos is to set high expectations of all its students and to offer a high-quality education at the heart of its local community.

With Athene’s retained PR and marketing support as well as crisis communications, branding, trustee recruitment and key stakeholder literature, the Academy has firmly established itself in its community.

With our support, pupil intake into Year 7 more than doubled after the first year of opening, giving Stamford Welland Academy a return on investment with Athene Communications of 18 to 1.

Stamford Welland Academy is supported by the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), and Athene Communications also provides similar support for CMAT’s other academies across Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
