King David Campus engaged Kajima Community in December 2011 to carry out a range of services to give the school lettings an injection of momentum in the newly built facility. The Campus comprises of King David High School, King David Primary School, King David Kindergarten, King David Community and Foundation. The Campus exists to provide quality academic and secular education for Jewish pupils as well as pupils from other faiths in the locality.
The new £25m education campus was one of the last Liverpool secondary schools to be built under the Building Schools for the Future programme.
Kajima Community’s involvement started six months before lettings commenced to carry out research into the local pricing of facilities similar to that of King David Campus. We then carried out a series of online marketing techniques to raise the rankings of www.kingdavidcampus.schoolbookings.co.uk on search engines.
The stake holders involved in running the campus were very keen that we were to be inclusive and promote Jewish principles, values and ethos. As a result our marketing and promotional activity took into account the hiring restrictions hiring in place including Kosher food and no activities on Shabbat.
In parallel with setting up BookingsPlus, asystem which includes a populated website, bookings system, payments and administration functionality operational documents were produced. These
included contracts, codes of conduct, terms and conditions, supervisor check sheets etc… to assist the evening and weekend staff.
The campus continues to use the system to administer their facilities but have School Lettings Solutions managing the whole lettings process.
