As the leaves begin to change colour and the evenings grow darker, we’re brightening up your day with our latest live school websites! Featuring a mix of school types and website styles, our August 2019 showcase includes some stunning examples of responsive school websites to kickstart your Autumn.
St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School is an independent Catholic day school for boys and girls aged 2-11. The school has recently received an award for ‘Recognised leaders in Catholic education 2019’ at the Private Education and Development awards.
One of seven school websites launched by Cleverbox in August, it combines inspirational imagery with useful information to ensure the website is relevant to anyone who visits it. We particularly love the moving image carousel header on the homepage, which showcases students in action and gives a realistic view of what life is like at this wonderful Lancashire based school.
A thriving 11–18 Academy, Sir Robert Woodard Academy is a member of the Woodard Academies Trust and serves the students of Lancing and Sompting primarily. A particularly lovely example of how school websites can be brought to life, you’ll see movement when you hover over an image with your computer mouse or tap the screen on mobile.
Each section has its own character thanks to some clever interactive features and makes for an enjoyable journey around the homepage and rest of the school website. We’ve also focused on branding, giving prominence to the school’s logo and colour palette, with a strong and decisive font to make all text really stand out.
Another member of the Woodard Academies Trust is Polam Hall School, a unique, exciting and vibrant place to learn. Since their foundation by Quakers in 1848, the mission of Polam Hall School has been to focus on the development of the whole child.
One of the best ways to use school websites as an effective school marketing tool is to include student case studies. The Polam Hall School homepage does just that, presenting image rich case studies backed up with solid testimonials from pupils to really sell what’s so special about this school.
Chislehurst School for Girls has been a Cleverbox client for many years. They recently decided to take the plunge and upgrade their school website. The old site had been built quite a few years ago so it was not responsive and was in need of a refreshed layout and modern design.
The new website is a stunning example of how school websites can benefit from a makeover – what a transformation! The new site features a really image rich design, with the homepage making use of some stunning photos within its header carousel. News is integrated into the homepage and the main sections visitors need to find are included as prominent image boxes on the homepage, so they’re very easy to find.
A place to grow. A place to explore. A place to learn. A place to express. These are the inspiring phrases that are showcased proudly on the homepage of the new Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Girls website.
School websites need to include certain information as standard; term dates, curriculum information and Ofsted documents are a must-have of course. But what we love about creating bespoke school websites is that schools can choose their own features and sections to include. The ‘Beyond the Classroom‘ section is a wonderful display of the extra-curricular activities on offer at this fantastic school, including trips, clubs and charities that students can become part of if they wish.
located between Chepstow and Newport, Caldicot School is an 11-18 co-education school with over 1300 students. The new school website has a simple menu with prominent sections for staff, students and sixth formers. It also includes noticeable tabs on the homepage for admissions information and a link to the school prospectus. So, it’s extremely easy to navigate!
Beautiful imagery is the first sight you’ll see upon landing on the homepage. Shots of students hard at work and play set the scene for a day in the life of this wonderful school.
Harris Academy Ockendon aims to become the most successful academy in Essex, providing all students with a first class education and amazing life experiences.
As part of the Harris Federation family, this wonderful academy bears the professional design that is consistent across all Harris school websites.
