School Website Content Management System

Our School Content Management System has been designed specifically for schools and enhanced over the last 10 years with feedback from schools.

Our CMS is packed with features to make managing your school website easy and enjoyable and comes with unlimited support from our friendly Greenwich team.

  • Bespoke design
  • Unrivalled Support
  • Update any time, from anywhere
  • Pages icon

    1. Unlimited

    Our content management system allows you to create unlimited pages and unlimited menus. You can easily re-order menus and sub-menus, and upload thousands of documents, photos and videos.

  • Calendar icon

    2. News
    & Calendar

    News & diary dates are at the heart of communication within a busy school. Our CMS allows you to add a diary date or news item and allow it display across the site automatically. You can add multiple diary dates in one go and choose to display dates as a list or in month, week, day view format. Parents can even subscribe to the school website calendar and add it to their own calendar.

  • Padlock icon

    3. Password
    Protected Areas

    You can password protect individual pages, or create areas which require a log in e.g. for parents, staff or governors. You can create as many password protected areas as you wish.

  • Users icon

    4. Role Based

    Through the CMS users manager, you can delegate and share the content editing with other staff, governors or even parents and pupils - you can choose which pages other editors can see and edit. The CMS gives you full control to create new users and manage existing users, and choose whether content editors can publish directly to the internet or to a 'pending approval' area.

  • Alert icon

    5. Home
    Alert Page

    Perfect for emergencies or school closures, our Home Alert feature allows you to publish a key message that will appear before the main website home page. It can be pre-populated in advance and enabled with one click so there's less to think about at 6am in the morning when you're expecting snow!

  • Photo icon

    6. Photo

    Parents love to watch photo galleries! And other visitors will be drawn to photos which can say much more than words. Batch upload photos in one go and sit back and watch the sideshow or view thumbnails and jump around. Create as many galleries as you wish and organise them with our clever gallery groups feature which allows you to tag a gallery so it automatically appears on the right page.

  • List icon

    7. Document

    Tired of adding policies to your website one by one? No more. Upload documents to a folder and our CMS Auto-list feature will automatically list them on a page. You can create your own auto-lists and use them for things like Newsletters, Letters Home, and Policies.

  • Version Control icon

    8. Version

    Don’t you wish everything you did had a rewind button? You can edit any page on your website with confidence as you can always go back to a previous version. So go ahead and experiment!

  • Scheduled Publishing icon

    9. Scheduled

    Need to make a page live at 6am on a Monday morning but don't fancy getting up early? Then scheduled publishing is for you. You can also schedule pages to stop appearing on your website at a particular time - a popular feature for job adverts.
