Lauriston Girls' School

Lauriston & Clearwater Agency, achieving record student enrolments



Lauriston Girls’ School is a private girls school that is helping build future generations of strong, confident women.  Tomorrow’s leaders, thinkers and doers.  In 2021, Lauriston celebrated their 120 year anniversary, reflecting on the incredible impact the school has had on young women for over a century and the exciting future ahead.

Emerging from two years of Covid restrictions and lockdowns, Lauriston Girl’s School was looking to adapt its traditional marketing mix to put additional focus on its digital marketing strategy and online presence. The opportunity was provided to Clearwater to come up with key areas that needed improvement at each stage of their customer’s journey.
