We have worked with Roundhay School for many years now and we have recently re-designed and built their second website. The design is striking and encompasses all three school areas - primary, secondary and sixth form. We have designed and built a content management system where each school had their own home page with school pages under, and where information such as news items can be shared with all three school sites in the one website. We also built a responsive website which works on mobile phones.The home page dynamically feeds news stories through keeping it fresh and exciting.Visit website
In 2012, we embarked on a process of reviewing and updating our school website. We wanted to rebrand, find an easier and more helpful partnership to empower the staff responsible for the website and increase functionality of the website as a tool for effective communication. Our existing deal was increasingly difficult to manage and we felt ‘ignored’ by our provider. The Specialists have been brilliant to work with. The friendly, personalised and supportive service they provide has revolutionised our use of the website and its role as a key tool for the school. We had also just become an all-through school, a development that lead to three distinct areas of the school that needed specific marketing to different target audiences. Not only did they design a fantastic easy to use website, but they also provided us with a vision around which we could structure all of our publicity and the internal branding that is now in place within the school. We now have a distinct team in school for this, and they feel like an extension of our in-house team! The Specialists are always easy to contact, always helpful and supportive whenever we have had a problem, however, small. Our website had become the informative heart of our school and is changing the way we operate and communicate. We are now entering phase two and, as with Phase 1, we would not want to be with any other provider to move our vision forward.
