Zest Academy Trust

Zest Academy is a new academy trust that launched in 2018. Based in Blackpool, it helps all kinds of schools to thrive and has particular expertise in offering guidance to schools that are in special measures. It is led by a dynamic team with a full board of directors, some have hands-on experience in teaching and specialist education, others bring skills such as business, accountancy and law to the group.

What we did

Apparatus has worked with Zest Academy Trust since its inception in 2017. At the outset we provided them with a corporate identity, website and a full suite of marketing materials including brochures, leaflets, stationery, signage, digital marketing strategy and email marketing. We have an ongoing relationship with the board and continue to serve them when new schools come on board. It’s an exciting project that draws on our experience of working with many different educational establishments and it’s particularly rewarding to see schools thrive when times are challenging for education.
