Case Study

“Cream helped shape our key messages, understood key audiences and used their network of contacts to get UTC Leeds in front of regional broadcast and print media. There’s no doubt the agency greatly added to the impact of the campaign.”

David Baggaley

Leeds City Council


The Brief

Cream was hired by Leeds City Council to act as part of the extended University Technical College team and provide dedicated PR and media relations support ahead of the opening of the unique new school.

Cream's Approach

Cream developed key messages and identified how best to reach key audiences. Cream used its network of media contacts to share those messages and engage with parents, students, businesses and stakeholders.


Cream reached more than 2.7 million people through print media alone. Broadcast coverage on Look North and BBC Radio Leeds reached another million people.

School places were filled in a matter of weeks and the UTC’s recruitment drive is being held up as an example of good practice by the Baker Dearing Educational Trust.
