It all started with two brothers...

one a teacher, the other a marketing expert. One day the teacher received some badly designed marketing material, and an idea struck him! He took the idea to his brother, and together they created a unique company that offered engaging education marketing for education businesses.

As the company grew they built around them a super-group of marketers, designers and developers, and at the heart of the company, former teachers who know how to sell to schools and who all helped Sprint Education win ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year Award’ at the South West Business Awards.
