Latest Live: A Review of The Latest e4education Sites
Published on 03/11/14
Each month, the e4education team launch a number of beautifully designed and highly functional websites. Below are some of the school websites that have gone live recently.
Typically the more illustrated websites that e4education design are for our Primary School clients, and the Hove Junior School, Chaucer Infant School and William Read Primary School sites are no different.
Some trends we’ve noticed with Primary School websites are:
- They’re really colourful! We love making our Primary School websites really vibrant and bringing your schools colours online - the websites that have gone live lately are no different. With great photography, illustration, and subtle animations, it can really bring your school website to life.
- They’re easy to read. Whether you’re using these websites on your smartphone or laptop, the text is easy to understand.
Secondary and Independent Schools
Designed in a more contemporary style, the websites we create for senior schools utilise high quality photography, which you can see in the new Wath Comprehensive School and Kimbolton School websites.
In the sites for secondary and independent schools, we’ve noticed:
- A great use of quality photography, across the whole site. Schools with such a varied curriculum and student body can really get across their school ethos and culture with just a few great images.
- Interesting interactive sections. Dynamic menus and intuitive scrolling lead to an immersive user experience, regardless of the device you’re browsing on.
- They really highlight the school’s heritage and identity. Kimbolton Schooloffers education to students from Lower Prep to Sixth Form, and their website needed to showcase that. Not only that, but they also provide a wide range of extra curricular activities and school events. Both Kimboltonand Wath Comprehensive have opted for branding on their school website which reflects their school uniform and crests, helping to increase their identity online, and to make them easily recognisable.
