Rathfern is a rich, vibrant and diverse community that develops its moral purpose through their core values. They believe that all of their pupils can become effective learners and achieve highly.

They have pioneered the development of ‘learning about learning’ (metacognition) across the school and are passionate about all their children’s learning and achievement. They are committed to providing precise support and challenges so that all of their pupils achieve at least national expectations, and beyond. They are an aspirational and inspirational school, committed to working with all their parents and carers to ensure the well-being and highest achievement of all their pupils.

The Challenge

To create a series of 11 professional banners to be attached to the exterior brick wall promoting the award for Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. The banners had to follow the school brand and include 11 different quotes on each banner picked from the Outstanding Ofsted report.

The Solution

Rather than use the more traditional PVC material, Pylon Design proposed using a longer-lasting composite material with vinyl film applied. This format allowed the banners to be fixed more permanently to the wall resulting in a more professional appearance. The Ofsted quotes formed the main focal point of the banner supported with the Rathfern brand elements. The banners are simple, smart, informative and and look like a permanent fixture to echo the ethos of the school.
