Claremont Fan Court School is a co-educational independent school for children aged from 2 ½ to 18 years, situated just outside Esher, Surrey.
When designing their website, we created a truly immersive homepage to draw the user in as soon as they land on the page, through a combination of stunning videography and striking photography paired with clean navigational pathways.
Our designers took inspiration from the school’s existing colour palette to create a clearly defined user journey throughout the website, highlighting key areas such as their History Timeline, Interactive Map and Character Education Values through uniquely tailored landing page designs.
"Compared with other website companies, e4education’s portfolio of work was impressive and offered web design unique to each individual school meaning each website did not conform to a uniformed format. We were also impressed by the CMS which allowed for on-page editing; a vast improvement from our old school website.
The ongoing support, advice and guidance right through from start to finish has been excellent. Staff are knowledgeable, helpful and enthusiastic – nothing has been too much trouble.
It has been a great experience and we are so pleased we chose to work with e4education. We would thoroughly recommend them.

St Gabriel’s is an independent day school based in Newbury for boys aged 6 months to 11 years, and girls aged 6 months to 18 years.
As an established e4education customer of many years, we recently worked with them to revitalise their website, utilising the latest version of our Content Management System to create a fresh, dynamic and informative online presence.
We designed an engaging homepage, animated infographic page and a dynamic, multi-channel social media wall to help showcase the distinctive features of their school. To enhance the user journey, we created a sophisticated image-led homepage switcher providing instant, easy access to the different entry points.
Woodlands Schools is a family of independent co-educational schools and nurseries sent in rural Essex, catering for children aged from 3 months to 11 years.
For this website project, we emphasised their creative, forward-thinking approach to education by incorporating interactive elements throughout the website and visually emphasising the Woodlands School Pupil Journey through an innovative, animated graphic; using the growth cycle of an acorn to symbolise the child’s progression through the school.
We used brand colours and imagery within the school navigation bar and switcher, as well as filterable news and events to enhance the user experience and encourage visitors to actively engage with features when exploring the website.
"e4education were brilliant to work with from start to finish.
They worked hard to understand our specific needs and challenges and delivered a fantastic school website, on schedule at every step of the way.
They were professional, creative and accommodating throughout and I’m very pleased with the result."

Warwick School is the oldest boy’s school in the country, dating back to 914. It is an independent day and boarding school for boys aged 7-18.
We are both privileged and proud to work with Warwick School and the wider Warwick Independent Schools Foundation on a number of website projects such as King’s High Sixth Form, King’s High Warwick, Warwick School Venues and Events, Project One Campus and the Landor Association. Collaborating on these projects has allowed us to develop an understanding and appreciation of the Foundation and ensured a cohesive approach to the websites within their organisation.
For the Warwick School website, we chose to combine beautiful imagery and clean, clear lines and navigation to create an elegant, timeless design. To provide regular updates for their parents and community, we created an information-rich Parents Portal which is easily accessible from every page of the website.
Princethorpe College is a mixed 11 - 18 independent Catholic day school situated in Rugby.
Taking inspiration from many conversations with the College, our designers created an instantly impactful, modern website that incorporated bold, eye-catching imagery and streamlined navigation menus. We then translated this design style across to the other schools within the Princethorpe Foundation to create one breathtaking, fully-integrated website that simultaneously emphasises the spirt of the Foundation whilst offering each school the opportunity to display their own individuality.
To showcase the thriving Old Princethorpians Alumni network as well as to highlight the important work that the College does to support and encourage deserving bursary pupils to attend - we created a visually-stunning bespoke landing page. These areas of the website help provide a genuine insight into life before, during and after attendance at Princethorpe College.
"We have been delighted with our new Foundation website and the bespoke pages e4education created for some specific sections including the Support Us pages. We wanted to really differentiate the Support Us pages, which promote our Development Team’s fundraising initiatives, from the rest of the site and provide added functionality.
The designer, Jordan, interpreted the brief brilliantly and worked with and enhanced our existing branding and artwork to create pages that we are confident will drive traffic, interest and ultimately funds for our bursary and Science campaigns."

Leicester Grammar School is a co-educational HMC independent day school for pupils aged 11 - 18, based in Great Glen, South Leicestershire. The school is part of the Leicester Grammar School Trust which also incorporates Leicester Grammar Junior School and Stoneygate School.
LGS wanted to work with a provider who truly understood their core needs and could provide the best fit for their requirements for a school website. They felt that the CMS was intuitive with a simple yet powerful interface and that our approach to our customers was exactly what they were looking for.
One of the key areas that LGS wanted to focus on was their bus route system; they wanted to ensure that any parent or student could find their nearest stop with ease. We created bespoke bus route functionality that allows a user to quickly identify their own route or individual stop. This has revolutionised their processes, allowing them to update the routes as and when required throughout the term.
"As Head of Marketing, I needed to familiarise myself with the CMS and was really impressed with its intuitive, simple yet powerful interface. e4education stood out for me on several levels. The sales representative was very friendly and knowledgeable, the CMS was the best fit for our needs and overall I felt that the e4education ethos and approach to their clients was exactly what we were looking for.
From deciding to work with e4education all through the design and development process I have felt that I have been understood and truly listened to.
I would whole-heartedly recommend any school to consider working with e4education"

The Freemen’s website has been designed to truly reflect the ethos within their school, highlighting the exciting plans and aspirations that they have for the future. One of the key elements of their design was the interactive ’8 Phase Master Plan’ focusing on their development plans up to 2028. This bespoke functionality allows users to view the different stages and follow the progress of the work.
We also created an immersive video for the homepage and updated the signage throughout their campus to create seamless continuity between their online and offline presence.
St Benedict’s is a co-educational independent Catholic school for students aged 3 - 18, based in Ealing, London.
We worked closely with the school to create a visually engaging and compelling website design accentuated with high quality photography and clear image-led call to actions throughout.

Russell House School is an independent co-educational preparatory school in Sevenoaks for children aged 2 to 11.
We worked with them to design a beautiful, easy to navigate school website with an interactive homepage that is clean, clear and inviting.
A particular standout feature of the website design is the ‘What’s Special about Russell House’ section; this area was created as an innovative way to focus on the school’s curriculum, facilities and environment via one simple, yet effective grid - giving the user a broad yet insightful overview of the important features without having to leave the homepage.

We are very fortunate to have worked with Bryanston for a number of years and their stunning website with its breathtaking photography, forward-thinking functionality and bespoke landing pages is often a firm favourite of many of the customers who browse our portfolio.
To showcase their extensive grounds and beautiful buildings, we worked with the school to create an engaging 360 virtual tour which allows their website visitors to take a fully-immersive, interactive journey around the school. We added hotspots throughout the tour to help give bite size snippets of information to enhance the experience.
