Greenhouse School Websites

How we build School Websites - step by step

You're in charge of organising a new website for your school. Don't panic! You're in good hands - we've designed and built over 3,000 school websites since 2007 and we'll give you as much help as you need every step of the way.

The whole process typically takes most schools around 4-6 weeks, but can be completed much more quickly if you have a particularly pressing deadline - just let us know.

    1. Consult

    During the initial design briefing we'll discuss the look and feel of your new website as well as considering your expected audience and the best way to get across the unique and special nature of your school. We'll also discuss your website likes and dislikes, colour, font and layout preferences. And we'll have plenty of suggestions of things to include to help make sure your website works for your school.

    2. Design

    With a few resources such as your logo and some photos we can get to work on the design for your new website. Once we've sweated away and agonised over every pixel, we’ll present a beautiful mock up of your new website, working with your feedback until you’re 100% happy with it.

    3. Build

    Once you're happy with the design we'll work our web magic and create a real website. You can sit back and relax for this part while our talented technical wizards build your website and integrate our Content Management System.

    4. Populate

    Before you go live you'll want to give your website some TLC - Tender Loving Content. We'll tell you what Ofsted need and get your initial content in place - just send it over or we can take it from your existing website.
