Extraordinary school website design


In a nutshell - we don't 'do' ordinary, we design, develop and deliver outstanding websites to the education sector (and what's great is we've been servicing schools and colleges for over 40 years, so we know how they tick).


Yes, think beautiful, but also think usable. We only design responsive websites and we always design with your user's experience in mind. Why? Because your website should not only look amazing, it should be amazing - viewed in the way you intended -  on any device in just a couple of clicks.


What is responsive school website design?


  • Content displays clearly on any mobile or desktop device
  • School website design that adjusts perfectly on any device
  • A seamless user experience for all

Our CMS (Content Management System)

Content4 - CMS for Schools

Content4, our CMS, is as feature-rich as it is easy to use - and that's the whole point. Built from the ground up with simplicity and schools in mind, we want our CMS to be intuitive and accessible to all, making updating your school website a straightforward, frustration free task.


You can create professional looking pages and news posts in no time at all using our latest, 3rd generation editing tools and a range of recently enhanced modules and drag and drop components. This means improved communications with your school community, whilst saving your administration time along the way.


Here's just some of the ways you'll be empowered:



Content management


Unlimited page, news post and event creation using drag and drop components for flexible layouts, a device preview tool, SEO tools and a saved history of all page revisions.

Inline editing


Create new content and edit or re-order content right on the page, as you see it. Add and edit components that look just like the final page. So what you see, really is what you get.

Notifications


Add your choice of two types of pop up alerts for important messages and announcements. Smart scheduling means your messages are timed to appear and expire exactly as you choose.

Media


Intuitive management of your documents, images and videos, synced with your YouTube, Vimeo Picasa and Flickr accounts. Images are automatically web-optimised and there's an image editor to fine tune your uploaded images. Simply drag and drop your files on to pages or add responsive image galleries and slideshows.

Integration


A key aspect of every website delivery is the ability for the CMS to link to and integrate with third party systems. We've been promoting this for years as a way of avoiding duplication of effort - saving you precious time. Talk to us about calendar integrations, social media integrations and integration with your MIS, making your website's user journey as seamless as possible.

Apps


The option to add our Apple and Android school app, linked directly to Content4 CMS for seamless display of all your news stories, calendar events, photo and video galleries, social media and contact details. Plus, get urgent news to parents quickly sending unlimited, free push notifications to all your app users or just by specific year group.


Analytics

In addition, we've integrated with Google Analytics so you can see key website statistics at a glance from the CMS dashboard. We also offer ongoing support services for search engine optimisation, social media and user experience.


Content4 CMS is ever-evolving, helping schools to stay on the front foot. Ask for a demo - we are convinced you will be impressed.


Content4 hosting and support

Your website go live is just the beginning. We're renowned for our approach to client service and regularly commended by clients for our willingness to go the extra mile. We're not just saying that - we can back it up. Whether it's phone, email or through our super efficient support ticket system - we're only ever a few clicks away.

school prospectus design

To print or not to print?...That is the question


A consistent dilemma for our school and college clients - to print or not to print their prospectus. Well, we can tell you we've recently seen a huge shift towards print once again.


School Prospectus Design


There's nothing like picking up a beautifully designed, perfectly printed brochure, leafing through pages of stunning photography and carefully crafted content. People are tactile by nature - to see, hold and feel something makes it far more personal and memorable.


What we cover: school prospectus design, brochure design and print, folders, information booklets, exercise books, leaflets, posters, in fact the list is endless.
