We have a proven track record of designing school websites, working with schools and colleges to create engaging and beautiful educational websites. We’ll create a user experience to help guide your prospects through an enjoyable journey to encourage new admission enquires while showcasing your school’s unique values.
We are school web design experts. A creative team of web designers and developers that understand the education sector, passionate about delivering a website that makes a difference to your schools’ marketing teams. We provide you with the tools and functionality alongside great design to help your site stand out against competitor schools. We never reuse a theme or tweak a design to match your brand guidelines. Everything we design is a unique custom website designed for your school. We’ll structure the navigation and the content and help improve search engine rankings so students and their parents can first find you and then easily navigate your pages.
Behind every school website is a powerful content management system that will give your school’s marketing team an intuitive interface to have complete control over everything. From updating menus and swapping out text and imagery to creating new pages using content blocks that can be dragged around in any order, your team won’t have to touch a line of code. Every page will look great, even on a mobile phone or tablet. As standard, every school web design is responsive and works on the largest monitors down to the smallest phones. We’ll ensure your visitors have the same familiar user experience, whatever device they are on.
You’ll also have control over the types of users who can manage your school’s content and their permissions, from external copywriters to SEO experts; you can lock them down to areas of the CMS that you want them to edit.
A beautifully designed school web design is there to provide your school with a trustworthy online presence and act as a sales channel for new admissions. We’ll help ensure the site performs in search engines to achieve the best possible results. With our built-in SEO tools, we’ll add friendly URLs, meta-descriptions and schemas to your content. We’ll also recommend an SEO strategy for short and long-term goals. We’ll help you to determine where you may rank strongly for more attainable keywords to appear higher in Google search results. Commissioning an SEO strategy is just one of the ways to ensure you improve search engine visibility, reach new parents and pupils, and accelerate your growth.
"Fhoke has been brilliant. There’s a lot of skill in the team – from project management to the designers, all the way to the developers. They clearly work as a well-oiled machine."
We understand that schools may need to sell merchandise, offer online payments for fees or donations, or sell tickets to school events. We can help make this process easy and secure for you and your users.
As well as building a secure and user-friendly school website, our experienced agency can develop an eCommerce store for your school using platforms like Shopify and BigCommerce. Or, if your school website is built on WordPress, and your marketing team want to keep the store under one roof, we can use WooCommerce to create a seamless shopping experience for your visitors. Our team can handle everything from product uploads to payment gateway and shipping provider integrations.
Building your school website
All great relationships start with a chat. We’ll listen to your school’s goals and get to know your staff and students. We’ll research your competitors, identify how we can make an impact, and help solve your user’s needs. We work with you to refine your ideas and present solutions to help you achieve your goals.
Collaboration breeds the best work. We’ll listen to your story, look at your aspirations, and create a set of school web design concepts that wow. We’ll explore colours, fonts and design features, and with your input, our designers and developers will create a unique and exciting school website that you and your school will proudly wear.
We offer much more than design and build services. We’ll give your team a powerful marketing tool for your school that focuses on creativity, usability, and conversions. The result is a representation of your school that is appealing, functional, and will generate more admissions.
Things don’t just end there. Many of our school web design projects extend to regular updates or creating new digital products. We can even help with your future marketing material – from new brochures and PDFs, print and packaging, signage, microsites, landing pages and email newsletters.
