SCHOOL & EDUCATION WEBSITE DESIGN

Websites for Schools, Colleges & Education

Our website team has created many websites for schools, colleges and education and we have received many compliments about our education websites and also about our follow-up service.

We like to design attractive school websites with content that can be easy to navigate for the user and easy to maintain for teachers/support staff to update.  We will also advise you re the best hosting solution for you as, for a school website that frequently uploads images, the hosting solution should offer scalability, storage capacity, security, ease-of-use, performance and customer support.

We offer both zoom training so that multiple teachers can video the session and refer back to it and on-site training if preferred.  We also offer full support 24/7. As schools generally have a huge amount of images being uploaded, we do suggest that the website is hosted on its own hosting site which we will set up and monitor.

We design school websites to suit your requirements – some schools, particulary secondary and colleges, prefer the classic, traditional yet modern look whereas the primary schools often prefer a more fun, modern design.

With all our websites, we are on hand to help with content and suggest new innovative features that can be incorporated into your school website.

Lisa guided us from the very beginning helping us to tailor our website to suit our school community. She was always on hand throughout the process to keep us right and nothing was ever a problem in putting it together. John has been great in teaching us how to use the website so that it is easily run. Thank you both for your professionalism.
