Project Description

Prendergast Vale School are building a family with academic excellence at the heart of everything they do.

Prendergast Vale School, cater for both boys and girls of all ages from 3 to 16. Their aim is for every student who leaves the school at age 16 to be on the path to university leading to successful careers with good prospects. To make this happen, they ensure that the academic and social development of every student is at the heart of what they do. Not only should students have well regarded qualifications when they leave school but they will also acquire character traits that will enable them to be successful in life. Traits such as optimism, resilience and confidence are developed throughout all subjects and through extra curricula activities.

Prendergast Vale School are a very special community; as their school motto says ‘in perpetuum discimus’ – we are forever learning.

The Challenge

Prendergast Vale School had an excellent Ofsted report for primary pupils which positioned them in the top 1% of all schools nationally, a tremendous achievement. Pylon were asked to provide three banners to be installed around the perimeter of the school. The banners had to follow the brand guidelines for the logo, colour and typography. The Ofsted quote had to be in a prominent position and have the required impact for parents, children and the public when passing by.

The Solution

Pylon Design were given the Prendergast Vale Schools logo and started to develop ideas based upon the corporate colours and the stags used within the emblem. Pylon made the focus of the banner the Ofsted quote spanning the full width of the available area. The school logo is in the right hand corner and 3 stags in the left hand corner to add balance. This simple but bold solution is very effective with the main message being clearly readable to all passers by.
