Ada. National College for Digital Skills
Ada's brief was for a creative website that was different to everything else.
There's nothing more exciting for our design and development team than a really creative brief that pushes the boundaries of what is possible within the current parameters of modern website design.
This incredible website features shapes, animations, contrasting colours, interactive form functionality, customisable pages and so much more.
Scalability and synchronisation were key components of this 11-school primary MAT project. We worked with Consortium to create a bespoke Trust website and an informative, colourful lead school design, which we then replicated for each of the other primary schools - taking into account their branding and colours.
De La Salle School
This secondary school website design features professional photography, a stylised menu and clear testimonials providing the perfect window in the life at De La Salle School.
English 31 is a non-for-profit charity based in France with over 35 years of experience in delivering an engaging and inspiring programme of Teaching and Learning which develops native English proficiency through the study of the English Language, Literature and Culture.
We have designed a fantastic bespoke website for that them that includes an English / French language toggle, rotating homepage values and a stylised map. They are also enhancing their home-school communications with our much-loved mobile app.
EOTAS Swindon started out as a branding project - with our designers creating beautifully simple logos for their different colleges. Following on from these successful designs, we then moved onto a full website project - building custom areas for each individual College to create one cohesive easyto-navigate website for their unique organisation.
Hales Valley Trust
Taking inspiration from their distinctive logo, we created a bespoke website design with a clear identity that incorporated mesmerising animated circular patterns, stunning photography, a defined schools area and brightly illustrated location map.
By using elements from the Trust design, we were able to create elegant replicas for each of the primary schools, providing a seamless consistency throughout. An example of this synergy can be seen on Woodside Primary School & Nursery website.
Lighthouse Schools Partnership
Lighthouse Schools Partnership is a large school trust made up of over 20 primary schools, federations, secondary schools and teaching schools.
Their project comprised of a contemporary design for their Trust and lead schools which could then be rolled out across the rest of their school websites - with small tweaks for personalisation and individual branding.
The Trust website features a large multi-pin map featuring the locations and information for all of the schools within their partnership and a bespoke staff page introducing their Central Team.
Minster Trust for Education (MITRE Trust)
Our relationship with MITRE began when we worked on The Minster School website back in 2018. When they needed a new website for their trust, they got in touch to see if we could help and we were thrilled to do so!
MITRE is a trust that focuses on individuality as opposed to uniformity - all of their schools are equal. We created a unique flowing design for the Trust with clear links to each of the schools, an introduction video, social media feeds and a bespoke vacancies area.
Nazeing Primary School
It's always a pleasure and an honour to be awarded a redesign project from existing customers who have been with us for a number of years. We really value the relationships we build with our schools and trusts, so when Nazeing came to us for a refresh, we knew exactly how to help.
Their new website was inspired by their shell logo and values of 'ask, achieve, aspire' as well as their 'Our Children are TERRIFIC' motto (each of the letters in 'Terrific' has a different adjective for the children in their care). WIth curves, circles, wavy lines and watermarks throughout, it's a natural blend of cheerful and contemporary.
Parkgate Primary School
Parkgate Primary School is part of The Futures Trust, but wanted a fun, functional design that truly reflected their own identity. We created a school website design with a hand-drawn feel featuring textured edges, chalk-paint brush marks, sketch effect fonts and rotating circular motifs.
Southend East Community Academy Trust (SECAT)
Using the jigsaw puzzle piece from the SECAT logo as inspiration, we created a design which uses this motif throughout in a variety of styles, shapes and colours. The homepage has a staggered section featuring all of the schools within their MAT - we look forward to seeing their new websites launch shortly!
