We know what makes schools tick and understand the pressures and constraints schools are under.
By taking a holistic approach to the development of school websites, Web Foundry are perfectly positioned to not only give your school website an overhaul, but also to become a long term strategic partner, providing everything your school may need from branding and video production to brochure and prospectus design.
As thought leaders and industry experts, we have produced reports and undertaken studies which really get to the root of what teachers, parents and governors expect from school websites as well as ensuring your website ticks all the boxes specified by Ofsted.
As a leading school website developers, we do not use templates – every site we develop is tailor made to your specific requirements. Things like colour schemes, menus and images are all bespoke, therefore you can rest assured that your new school website will not only be unique, but also specific to your school's brand and image.
One of our experienced consultants will meet you to discuss your aspirations for the new site, from a design, functionality and content perspective. Having gained a thorough understanding of your goals, as well as a flavour of what makes your school tick, we will then prepare our initial concepts for your approval.
Using the information gained within the initial consultation, we will produce concepts and designs for all the key inner pages – generally we get this right first time but we’re always open to new ideas or amendments. Once (and only when) these designs are signed off by you, we will start the development process.
Prior to go live, we will spend a day with you and your team to ensure you have a full understanding of how your new content management system works. We'll show you how to upload content, change images and cover anything you need to empower you – no more one off charges for small changes to your school website!
After the training session has been completed, we will agree a Go-Live date with you and help you promote your new website launch to parents, governors and students.
From experience, this provides you with a perfect platform to promote the school and get some really great profile awareness.
