Virtual Open Day

The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 meant that we all had to approach things in a new way for the first time. For schools, the challenge couldn’t have been greater.

The typical ‘Open day’ that most schools host simply wasn’t possible. So, to allow prospective parents and students the opportunity to ‘experience’ William Farr School, we produced a Virtual Open Day promotional video for the school.

Over two days we carried out COVID-secure filming across a number of classes in the school, including science, drama, RE, sport and more. Together with these dynamic shots, we interviewed several students at the secondary school and sixth form. These genuine, honest comments formed the backbone of the video, giving credibility to William Farr’s status and reputation as a leading school.

The video has had a fantastic response from teachers, pupils, parents and prospective students.
