WHAT WE DO
SHAPES is a creative agency with a commitment to education at its heart. We provide schools-facing content, strategy and marketing for organisations who want to inspire a new generation of learners.
SHAPES supports clients to make meaningful connections with new audiences of teachers, young people and their families. Together, we help to make a real educational, business and social impact.
We are proud to have been announced the winner of an Education Resources Award (ERA) in 2018: Free Educational Resources of the Year for our work on Sir Chris Hoy's Flying Fergus Summer Challenge. Find out more on the blog.
At SHAPES, we can identify and develop opportunities to build serious value for organisations by creating serious value for pupils and teachers in schools.
Our experienced network made up of teachers and education marketing professionals are able to give bespoke advice and strategy to clients depending on their needs, including how to plan marketing campaigns and identify the best channels to teachers, kids and parents to give the message maximum educational impact.
The best way to capture the imaginations of pupils and teachers alike is to use content in new and interesting ways, and our writers are able to do it. From resource packs to single resources, to video, to marketing brochures, to catalogues and P.O.S, we offer professional writing and editing services – producing content for every age group, from Key Stage 1 right through to Key Stage 5.
