We would like to thank you for your positive feedback following the launch of the new holiday programme and supporting materials.

Jan Miller franchisee in Swindon said:

“I just wanted to let you know that the new holiday leaflets look great and have had a massive impact on my numbers already.

The potential of our new mascots

The Hare and the Tortoise

Our new mascots offer better possibilities of engaging with our customers. They resonate with customers, inspiring them to engage in conversation and share content. Also, it helps to personify the brand, increasing brand awareness and attractiveness of the brand.

For the Hare and the Tortoise, social media allows the mascots to develop their own identity, becoming the face of the new holiday programme. A successful example of a social media site is Aleksandr Orlov, the mascot from Comparethemarket.com.

Example of reducing costs and increasing profit – franchisee drives online bookings and sees 70% increase...

Business partners, Chris Pipe and Jonathan Mills from the Romford, Dagenham, Barking and Ilford territory in Essex set to work towards the back end of the last academic year to indentify unnecessary ‘waste’ in their business to ensure a LEANer way of working. To achieve this goal, Chris indentified the promotion of extra curricular (EC) clubs as the most labour intensive aspect of his job. For example, leading up to a new term, Chris spent most of his week delivering leaflets to schools and collecting booking forms from secretaries (weekly) etc.

So, with the help of the marketing department, Chris, Jonathan and his team embarked on a new strategy to drive his customers to book online via the website.

As a result, online bookings increased by 70% for EC clubs starting this term. Also, their average numbers per club increased to 16.4 (January - April) against term 1.

We’ll let Chris talk you through the process...

Yesterday, Ofqual published its decisions on subject assessment, including the proportion of non-exam assessment and the assessment objectives.

A great achievement for five year old... #morethansport

Jonathan Mills, Franchisee in Romford, Dagenham, Barking, and Ilford tells us of five year old, Daisy’s first experience on a Premier Sport event -

“Five year old, Daisy Joyce has just started attending Premier Sport events. As the only girl on the course, she was initially hesitant about attending but her mother tells us her daughter now loves it.

“Daisy was especially delighted at being awarded a certificate presented to her in her school assembly. Her mother says this has given Daisy a huge confidence boost and the certificate has pride of place on her bedroom wall. As her mother said, ‘You can’t put a price on what that has done for her’.

“Well done everybody. You’re doing a great job!”
