"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."

Nothing short of iconic, Charterhouse is one of the great historic independent schools of England steeped with fascinating history and outstanding academic excellence. Home to 820 pupils from around the globe, the school has created a website that covers all its communication and branding needs. Determined to use the website platform’s technology to its full potential, the school takes advantage of a secure Parent Portal enabling parents to log-in to view specific content relevant to their children – from reports and grades to examination information to essential documents and policies. In addition, the site also houses a dedicated Parents’ Area with a clear and easy-to-navigate grid layout linking to the most popular areas for parents. The school’s impressive Video Gallery gives an impeccable insight into school life and its educational principles, with engaging and excellently produced video content, essential in engaging their prospective and existing parents.
One of Britain’s most prestigious schools encapsulating tradition, global recognition and a pioneering education, Harrow School’s ethos is “to measure success not by grades but by one’s influence on the world”.
To experience Harrow is to see Harrow, and thus the interactive map reveals the school’s outstanding grounds, and features each of the Boarding Houses along with a short introduction of the Housemasters. With inspiration being at the core of Harrow, its distinctive alumni page promotes some of its famous former pupils, taking emotional engagement to a new level by showcasing biographical profiles that also reveal a childhood photo of their time at Harrow. Aware of the interest in Harrow’s legacy, the school created a dedicated page to the Old Speech Room Gallery, appealing to academics and members of the public who are interested in the rich history of the school.
The task of designing a website to reflect the vast qualities and unique intricacies of this school is not one to be underestimated and Harrow excels at creating visually attractive and interactive quick links to help steer their visitors seamlessly.
Set in stunning Dorset grounds and featuring grand classical architecture alongside abundant modern facilities, pupils enjoy an environment The Good Schools Guide aptly describes as one that “fizzes with activity from dawn till dusk”. With high-impact use of stunning photography, slideshows and videos, this redesigned website wows from the homepage onwards, and we gain a real insight into the feel of the campus. Visitors can engage with the interactive school map, visit the extensive school history and archives, while Canford’s community engagement commitments both at home and through their international charity partnerships are supported through online donation and enterprise pages. The parents portal adds a tailored environment where current families can engage on a much more personalised level.
With over 600 pupils from 3 to 18 years including boarders and a diverse international community, the school commits to providing a secure and culturally diverse family atmosphere, where each pupil can attain their personal best academically. St Lawrence College prides itself on its safe, spacious surroundings as well as its cutting-edge facilities and architecture, which exist alongside the more traditional and late nineteenth century buildings. The website too is a seamless hybrid of tradition and modernity with a design and navigation that meets the needs of its diverse visitors.
Taking care not to disturb a clean visitor journey, St Lawrence takes advantage of a non-intrusive, collapsible notice, which blends into the homepage delivering essential prompts whilst respecting the visitor’s purpose. One of its most striking and innovative features is its branded Google map tour, which displays local landmarks and airports for international families. The school identified the value of designing Senior and Junior landing pages with engaging and tailored content in the form of fast facts and statistics. Attuned to the day-to-day needs of parent visitors the school created a dedicated Parents Resources Hub providing a quick and easy place for parents to find their most sought-after content.
