While PRG has always been proud to cater for a number of clients, in both the B2B and B2C sectors operating within a variety of different industries, our talented team have become specialists over the years in a number of key areas.
One such area which the skilled PRG web team has seen a significant increase in demand for is website design and development for a number of primary schools across the Sussex region. In recent years, we’ve worked on a number of websites, taking on everything from small tweaks to improve user experience and ensure SEO best practice, to bigger projects, with the team being challenged to redesign entire websites.
At PRG, we know websites are effectively an online ‘shop window’. Users must be able to navigate easily around the website, and should know what action you would like them to undertake once they are there. A good school website will ensure the school’s values and achievements are clearly visible to prospective parents, and parents of current pupils should be able to find resources and assistance at the touch of a button.
We’ve been keeping ourselves busy designing school websites for primary schools across Sussex and beyond, including a responsive build and events calendar, as well as a new logo for St John’s School in Horsham, and multiple social media integrations for Castledown School. Other schools we’ve helped include The Mill Primary Academy in Crawley and Ore Village Primary in Hastings.
With the rise of social media, it’s important to ensure your website has social media integration, and we’ve also seen demand soar for multi lingual websites and school font integration. Blogs, photo galleries and events calendars are all important to consider, but a fresh, engaging design is crucial to keeping users wanting to spend time on your webpage.
As parents and guardians begin to attend open days and start the process of choosing schools for their little ones over the coming months, there’s no better time than the present to ensure your website is working as hard as it can be for your school.
It isn’t just prospective parents who benefit from a consistently updated and well-designed school website however – parents of existing pupils often find school websites a useful resource to keep up to date with their child’s learning and make them feel part of the school community.
