Over recent months we’ve received an increased amount of enquiries from schools looking to improve their school marketing efforts and wishing to add drone services to their photography or videography packages for their school marketing. So we thought we would write a blog to tell you more about our drone services for school marketing, how we provide the service and why schools should use our drone solution.
How we provide drone services
All our drone pilots are fully licensed with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). As a result, this means we understand the legalities of flying a drone such as not being able to fly a drone above 120m.
Flying drones can make members of the community a little nervous, so we inform the police that a drone will be flying in the local area so they can confidently handle any reports and reassure members of the community that the drone is legally flying.
Drones cannot be used in all areas of the UK, these are known as non flight zones. Therefore, schools are near MOD bases, airports or prisons, will either not be permitted to fly or we will need to seek special permission – We sort all of these elements before coming to your school to alleviate your workload.

Why use drone in school marketing?
There are so many reasons for using drone photography or videography in your school marketing!
Drone’s can be used to showcase the following areas:
- Outdoor facilities (forest school or trim trails)
- Grounds (playing fields or woodland areas)
- Outdoor activities (such play time)
- Location and landmarks
- The school building
Here’s a great recent example of a school tour video using our drone service.
