Wilkes Academy

Social Campaign

Social Media Partner – Content & Management 

Wilkes Academy are one of the UK’s leading performing arts colleges, located out of Swindon and Stoke.

They exist to provide the best possible professional training, to ensure their students are well-equipped for the industry. In recent years, students have graduated and secured placements in some of the West End’s top theatre productions, as well as travelling the world aboard the P&O portfolio of ships.

Our Objective 

We’re on-hand to help Wilkes Academy bring the story of what happens within their studios, to life. Producing both video and photography content, we apply a layer of science and experience to activating the content as best possible across their 3 main social media channels of Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.

We also assist with the management and development of their official website.

The Work

Key Stats

  • 38% increase in ‘likes’
  • Post reach of 255,000 people

THE PROCESS

Our team was given ‘access-all-areas’ to the Academy’s facilities in Swindon, where we spent 15 hours filming and photographing classes of all natures.

This allowed us to gain a grasp of the true nature to Wilkes Academy and their ways-of-working, as well as getting to know the 200+ individuals involved.
