Website Design, Hosting and Support

Are you looking to improve your school website? Did you know that we now design and build websites for schools ensuring that all the current DfE requirements and Ofsted expectations are met? With our extensive experience of working with primary schools, nurseries and academies, you can be sure we will meet your school website needs. We also offer unlimited Support via email and phone.

We work with you throughout the design process making sure that your individual needs are met. We can customise the website colours to match your school and add your logo. We can add an Event Calendar to show your schools upcoming events and also a language translator to make your website more accessible. If you want a dynamic news feed or blog, we can add that too. If you have a Twitter account, we can add the feed onto your homepage or even a link to Facebook . The look and feel of the website is provided using a WordPress Theme and there are many Themes available.

You stay in conrtol of your website. We provide you with an easy-to-use hosted Content Management system called WordPress. WordPress allows you easily to create and edit pages and to add images, photographs, videos and documents. Full training will be given and you have the control to update your website whenever you need to, without having to wait for a third party to update it for you.

A premium Plugin is available at an extra cost which allows you to add a secure Collaborative area for file sharing between staff, governors, pupils and parents.

We also backup your website on a daily basis, should the worst happen to it.

We can build you a new site for a very competitively priced £950. This includes the hosting, backup and support for the first year.

The package includes:

Upgrading your existing WordPress Website

If you have had your website for a couple of years or more, you might want to think about updating the theme to a newer, more modern and eye-catching one. Your content and the way you edit your website won’t change, it’s just the overall look and feel which will be updated. There are hundreds of themes available to choose from. We can apply a new theme on your existing website for around £350 - £450 depending on the theme you choose and the work involved, which is a lot cheaper than buying a new website elsewhere if you were considering this.

Ongoing Annual Website Maintenance and Support (for existing websites)

The package includes:

We also offer Support, Backup and Maintenance for WordPress websites which are not developed and hosted by us. Please ask for more information.
