What will my advert look like?

Adverts can be placed as either boxed or lineage adverts.

Boxed advertisements

All boxed advertisements include our FREE design service. There are 6 sizes of box available, with some available in both portrait and landscape orientations. Please see the table for box sizes and the approximate maximum number of words each box can accommodate.

Boxed adverts are designed per school and can accommodate logos and photos if required (adding photos may require a larger box).

If requested before 10am on a Wednesday, we will provide a proof of your advert prior to going to print

Lineage advertisements

Lineage adverts are adverts in a standard style (no logos or bullet points etc) with a limited number of words. The fee covers the school name and contact details plus an additional 85 words. Additional words are charged at an additional rate per word per week.

We are not able to provide proofs for lineage advertisements.

How can I make my advert stand out?

Featured adverts

If you want to highlight your advert to potential applicants why not make your advert a “Featured advert” on our website. For an additional fee we can highlight your advert within the Job Search page. Book this quickly though as there is limited availability each week. Please contact us for further information.
