About the client

About the project

St Oswald’s Catholic Academy Trust is the first Catholic academy in the Middlesbrough Diocese. As such, they required an entirely new brand for the Trust that oversees all the academies along with the creation of separate brands for each individual academy.

mm&d provided St Oswald’s Catholic Academy Trust with a wide range of design services that involved the production of new signage, stationery, prospectuses for each academy and school as well as pens and pin badges for all our staff, students and governors when the academies were launched.

According to Pam Hanrahan, Headteacher, the personal service offered by mm&d has been particularly beneficial to the Trust:

mm&d provides a thorough and professional service – nothing is too much trouble.  Someone is always available at the end of a phone and they are also willing to come on-site at the drop of a hat. I cannot speak highly enough of their services.”

Working with schools is an area mm&d is particularly experienced in, having recently signed several contracts with the soon-to-be-launched academies. Director Mark Skirving is looking forward to forging new partnerships in the coming years:

As a business, we see the education sector as an important element of our work. We are able to offer a wide range of bespoke marketing services specific to schools, from complete re-brands to uniform designs. We offer all services in-house.

Schools are increasingly having to operate in partnerships with the local community and we can help ensure they are presented in a professional manner.”
