It’s no secret that schools are under increasing financial strains, and one way many educational establishments aim to bridge this gap is by letting out their facilities to the local community.
But, as they say, there’s always room for improvement, and no matter how much extra revenue you’re currently bringing in, there are always ways to generate even more income. The catch though, is that it often requires resource – which we know is a sparse commodity.
So, here are six ways School Lettings Solutions can give your bookings a healthy boost for free:
- We take care of the day-to-day
Your priority is, and always will be, the quality of education you provide to your pupils, so taking resource away from that is out of the equation. But without that extra resource, you’re somewhat limited with what you can do – it’s a bit of a catch-22 situation, really.
We rid you of that dilemma though and relieve the strain by taking care of things like taking bookings, opening and closing your premises, and making sure each letting runs smoothly by being onsite throughout each community activity. This enables schools to facilitate more bookings, without worrying about stretching your manpower.
- We provide free design work
Being a designer isn’t everyone’s domain, but to market your facilities – with impact – you need standout collateral to do the job.
To fill this void, our experienced design team create bespoke flyers, posters, newsletters and outdoor banners for your school, to showcase your facilities in the local area.
