Visit Site

“Outward-looking and forward-thinking”, Frensham focuses on the girls’ boarding experience and prides itself on “moving beyond traditional structures and breaking new ground for Australian schools”, and the website powerfully assists in conveying this ethos. The homepage pulls the visitor in, its slideshow filtered with the school’s brilliant purple colour, and featuring an exciting array of quick-linked news boxes. The site’s header features a full-screen and beautifully divided drop-down navigation, while an aerial-photographed campus map serves as the site’s sticky footer, giving a good feel for the school’s rural surroundings.  The ‘Girls Say, Parents Say, Teachers Say’ testimonials provide refreshing insight into school life, further assisted by social media links to online Frensham community spaces.

What Finalsite Composer Users Have to Say...

"The key to our successful project with Finalsite had been working as a team. The process of our collaboration became seamless since I acted as a Project Manager for Frensham, working closely and in tandem with the Finalsite's Project Manager, until our new website was launched. I very much enjoyed working with Michelle that we are now in the process of building our junior school's website... and, it has been a breeze so far!"

Indra Deigan, Creative Director,
Frensham Schools, WA

"Our new website was completely worth the investment. Six months on from launch, the number of sessions per month increased by 40%. We can do so much more with our website now, the increased functionality benefits both the school and its end users. I'm very pleased with the final result. It was a lovely project to oversee and deliver."

Jessica Cotton, Director of Marketing and External Relations
