Latest School Website Design January 2020
Latest School Website Design Launches by Greenhouse School Websites
The New Year is traditionally thought of as a time for new resolutions, fresh starts, and, in our opinion, it is also a great time to have a new website! Below, we have collected a few of our favourite school website designs launched this month, including a design packed with additional features!
Castle Hill High School
The new design for the Castle Hill High School website features a full-screen background photo gallery, and we sent one of our photographers to the school to capture some lovely shots for use on the website. Not sure what benefits great photography can offer your school? Click here for our take on the importance of great school photography.
The Castle Hill High School website also features a pull out twitter tab and a box of changing quotes. Here, the school have opted to display positive statements from their Ofsted report and from happy parents’ feedback.
Hall Grove School
The new website design for Hall Grove School looks gorgeous, combining the school’s uniform colour of red with navy blue. The use of a panelled design, coupled with a selection of high-quality professional photos, helps to show off snippets of school life. The homepage features a “Learning Progression” section, which explains the five phases that the school is divided into; clicking on the buttons in this section redirects visitors to the site to an inside page with a video and more detailed information about each stage. The homepage also features Admissions information, the school Calendar, and a link to a welcome message from the Headmaster.
Tennyson Learning Community
We love the Tennyson Road Primary School website design launched in December 2019, and now that their Trust website has been launched, we are excited to show it off as well! We took the hexagons of the Trust logo and made it a key design feature of the website. Hexagons can be found throughout the website, with the footer sharing similarities with the website footer on the Primary School website. Photos are also featured prominently throughout the design, with a full-screen background image on the homepage, and each panel containing a different photo as you scroll further down.
Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School Roehampton
Sacred Heart Roehampton update their twitter frequently, and so wanted it to be easily found by parents and other website visitors. Therefore, it is featured prominently as a pull-out tab on the homepage of their new website design. Additionally, the homepage contains a link to a Welcome video, as well as a full-screen background photo gallery. Upcoming events are displayed next to a welcome message from the headteacher.
Mowlem Primary School
Schools with great results can easily display them prominently and aesthetically on their website with our animated statistics feature. When the page loads, the wheels are animated to fill up to match the statistic being shown. Mowlem opted for this feature when discussing their new website design. They also wanted to display their Butterfly Awards prominently; the homepage is the best place to emphasise what sets a school apart from the masses. Another interesting feature of this website is the curriculum pop-ups section.
Regent High School
We love working with schools that have really fun or unusual logos, as it gives us the chance to get our creative hats on, and work the elements of the logo into the wider school website design. Regent High School’s new website is a prime example of this. The diagonal stripes found in their logo can be found throughout the school website. Additionally, the stripes are used to hold the names of each section, for example, Twitter. The strapline of “Ambition Inspiration Opportunity” frames the background images on the homepage nicely. Diary dates and latest news items can also be found displayed prominently on the homepage.
