We were approached by Vinny Turner, headteacher at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School in Newcastle Upon Tyne and asked to completely redesign and rebuild the school website.
The old school website was bland and didn’t reflect the vibrancy of the school. The information architecture was poorly designed; which meant information was really hard to find, and basic features – such as onsite search – were not present.
The old website had been built without a content management system (CMS) meaning that updates could only be done by one or two members of staff.
For this project, we implemented a CMS with a workflow, where all staff could create content but only the management team could publish. The information architecture was redesigned and only key content was migrated from the old to the new site.
We ensured that the new design reflected the vibrancy of the school, bringing through the colours of the school badge. We also ensured that any imagery used was reflective of day-to-day life at St Teresa’s.
The images below show side-by-side comparisons of the homepage; the left-hand image is the original homepage and the right-hand image is the new homepage design.
“I would highly recommend Grow Digital for your website design and implementation.
