Pressburst is an online publishing and communications platform for publicising news, blogs, jobs and events. Developed by Attain, Pressburst membership gives school's access to a wealth of resources for just £300 + VAT per annum.

Pressburst saves you time, making it easy to compose a news story or blog post, list a job vacancy or highlight a forthcoming event. With Pressburst, you only need to upload your content once and manage everything from one system:


Pressburst radically simplifies the process of creating, publishing and promoting news stories to the media. As well as guiding you through the composition of the story, Pressburst simplifies social media, enabling you to post directly to your Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as creating a professional press release which can be easily emailed to press contacts directly from the system.


With Pressburst, you can regularly publish blog posts from Heads and senior staff to instantly make available for parents to read via the school's channel on the Attain app. Parents can enjoy the simplicity of being able to access all the school's news and blog content from one mobile app. The best blogs are selected for further promotion by Attain.


Pressburst helps parents keep in touch with all events and information from your school via the Attain app. Upload and sync the school calendar and post notices for display to parents when they access the app. For prospective parents, add forthcoming Open Day dates and gain exposure via the latest termly edition of Attain.


Pressburst makes listing and managing job vacancies easy. You can quickly and easily upload all the information, choosing when to start promoting the job. The vacancy is listed on a number of exclusive Channel Partner job portals relevant to your organisation, including ISC, HMC, GSA, IAPS and the Society of Heads.

Pressburst can be used free-of-charge, albeit with restrictions. To gain the full benefits requires Pressburst membership at a cost of £300 + VAT per annum*. Membership applies to all schools in a foundation, giving all staff access to the features of Pressburst. Schools can add an unlimited number of user accounts to enable as many staff as possible to working together to promote news, blogs, events and jobs to as wide an audience as possible.
