Flagship primary school visit from High Sheriff


Flagship primary school visit from High Sheriff

One of our longest-standing clients Western Primary received a visit from the High Sheriff of North Yorkshire yesterday and we went along to take photos. As part of our PR and photography service to the school, we then wrote a story about it for the school website

We are unique in that we are not just school photographers. After checking parental photo permissions with the school, we uploaded the story and one of the photos to the website, and sent it out to local media. The rest of the photos will go in two galleries on our server – one password protected gallery that the teachers can access and download images from at high resolution – and one password protected gallery for parents, so they can see all the pictures from the visit. We keep their website updated too. With 400 children in the school, the website is often the last thing that the teachers or office staff have to think about, so they rely on us to keep the information fresh and sort any issues. We do their school PR and editorial photography, design and produce their prospectus, take their school portrait photographs, class photographs and produce their Staff ID cards.

So, yesterday, The Mayor of Harrogate presented Western Primary as the town’s flagship primary school on an official tour with the High Sheriff of North Yorkshire.

“The High Sheriff is a direct appointment of Her Majesty The Queen,” said Mayor of Harrogate, Cllr Les Ellington. “The role is the second most important in the county after the Lord-Lieutenant. It’s an honour that the High Sheriff should visit us, and we wanted to show her some of Harrogate’s best exemplars of education, business and tourism. We chose Western Primary for our school visit because of its warm welcome, and the boundless energy and enthusiasm of the children. We were so impressed with the school on our first visit in 2011 that we chose to present it as one of Harrogate’s top attractions.”

It’s great to work for such a good school. Read more on the Western website, in the News section.
