Latest School Website Design September 2019
Latest School Website Design Launches by Greenhouse School Websites
September is an incredibly busy month for us, with schools returning after the summer holidays, and many new website designs being launched. In fact, we’ve launched so many gorgeous new websites this month, it was difficult to choose just six to show off! Here you can find a selection of our favourite school website designs that we have launched in September, including two primary school websites featuring an illustrated design.
Ashbury Primary School
Ashbury Primary School in Wiltshire is surrounded by lush rolling hills and is just a couple of miles away from the Uffington White Horse, a prehistoric landmark etched into the hillside. We have incorporated these into the illustrated design for the school’s new website. The skyline background also features the local castle, sheep and other wildlife, and a rainbow, all surrounding the school and playground. Rainbow colours give the website design a primary-aged feel. Meanwhile, the tabbed news and diary dates box provide a lot of information in a concentrated space. Finally, the school’s motto can be found in the rainbow.
Belhaven Hill School
Belhaven Hill School are located right next to the ocean, on the scenic east coast of Scotland; they chose to feature a background video on the homepage of their new school website, showing clips of life at the school, interspersed with sweeping drone footage. Below the video, animated boxes direct visitors to the website to important pages such as Admissions. This, coupled with the very active news section on the homepage, makes for an informative and unique school website.
Leasowe Primary School
Leasowe Primary School wanted a new design for their school website, featuring nautical elements, as the school is very close to the sea. We choose to feature a lighthouse, in line with the school’s logo. The lighthouse on the menu sits next to the menu tab that visitors are looking at. A welcome message, facebook box and diary dates can be seen on the homepage. The overall effect is a streamlined but effective and pretty homepage.
The best endorsement of a new school website is the feedback from the school themselves; we were also thrilled when we received the following message from Katy, the headteacher of Leasowe Primary School.
“I am thrilled! The site is AMAZING! Thanks so much.”
We’ve packed tonnes of special features into the homepage of the Bridge Academy website. For example, a full-screen video background can be seen at the top of the homepage. Additionally, visitors to the website can find animated performance statistics, customised curriculum pop-ups, and boxes showing the school’s social media accounts. A second video can be found in the Welcome section.
Burton Fields School
We are really happy with this illustrated school website design! The rainbow shades of the menu and boxes have been taken from the school’s logo, and make the website look especially vibrant. The Parent Zone tab on the left side of the page extends to display links to the Newsletters and Term Dates pages. The canal and factory illustrations are based upon landmarks near the school.
Pakefield Primary School
Warm autumn tones make up the colour palette of this school’s new website design. We didn’t want to retire the illustrated header from the previous design, and so it has been included in the footer at the bottom of the website. This illustration has aged gracefully since we first drew it in 2014; it shows the school building nestled between hills dotted with wind turbines, as well as the ocean in the background. Additionally, the homepage features diary dates, a noticeboard, twitter and a hexagon with changing quotes. Finally, some of the school’s core values are displayed in flowers, which match those seen in the transparent overlay.
