Great Corby School asked us to design and build a new website, and were looking for something unique and original, to make sure it felt like a true reflection of what it is like to attend the school as a pupil.
They provided some examples of other school websites they liked, and after seeing our case studies had several websites we'd created that had similar styles and design features, they knew we would be able to create something amazing for them.
As school websites can be large and need a lot of information presented in diverse ways, we spent time initially to determine the best menu structure, and understand what pages and sections would be required.
Taking a stunning mosaic from the school office as inspiration for the design, Maxine worked with the text content from the school, and our planned page layout requirements, to design key website pages.
The final website pulls together all of the requirements we were initially given - simple navigation, clear access on the home page to key website pages like the calendar, and a design that looks friendly, yet professional.
A range of core features allow the school to easily update the news section, upload documents to the policies page (including automatic generation of the document thumbnails) and edit page content as required.
At the time of launch a few pages were still to be populated as the school were super-keen to move away from their previous provision.
Overall, this was a radical overhaul, with the new website creating a welcoming and visually stunning online presence for the school.
