Unhappy Setting a different header on first page

How do I create a header on the first page which is different to the subsequent pages WITHOUT inserting a page break?

I am creating document templates for use by my work colleagues. The header and footer included brand graphics.

However, the first page header graphic is a different height to the header graphic seen on all subsequent pages. As I can't rely on my colleagues inserting a page page everytime they are populating the document, can I design the template so the first page is always different? Do I use a cover page for instance?

Note, set the size for your header to accommodate the smaller graphic. Make sure that wrapping for your larger graphic is set so that text will be above/below or have text sufficiently large that it reserves the space. The header space will increase to fit contents so long as the content is not set to be in front of or behind text.
