The CMS built for school and educational websites

A content management system for schools

Our custom-built content management system (CMS) has been designed exclusively for schools and the education sector. It is developed and maintained by our team of in-house developers with regular updates making it the best-of-breed software for schools. And what’s more, our CMS is intuitive and simple to use.

Editing a page is child's play

Editing the content on your page couldn’t be easier with our in-built WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) text editor. 

You can type in content from scratch or copy and paste - it's as easy as that! And when you're finished, you can preview your content and then save - either directly onto the website, or as a draft, if you'd prefer to come back later.  

Don't just take our work for it - have a go below!

Drag & drop images

Uploading files to your website has never been simpler.  

Simply drag your files from your computer, drop them into the CMS, and watch them pop up on your web page in seconds; whether it’s a PDF, word document, or images for your gallery. From there you can resize them and move them around the page. It’s that easy!

Choose from a selection of content blocks

Make your web pages more interactive by adding pre-loaded content blocks.  Select from a wide range including quote boxes, accordion menus, forms and news items to help save you time and make your content pop.  

Include accordion menus

This is an example of how an accordion menu works. You can choose to expand or close them to minimise the amount of scrolling on your webpage.

What our customers say...

  • The CMS that is the easiest and most flexible that I have come across. The customer service throughout has been exemplary and nothing ever appears to be too much trouble. I would highly recommend e4education.

  • Together with e4education, we have developed 9 websites for academies across the trust. I am truly impressed by the customer care I have received. The content management system is the easiest I have used, but if you do need help, you can reach someone first time, every time.
