Along with the standard features our bespoke websites offer, we can add a variety of extras, such as a social media wall, or a video background.

The Setup Fee

Our setup fee includes creating your design, creating an initial menu and page structure and entering any content you have already written or which appears on your existing website.

To keep our services affordable we firstly keep our own costs low by, minimising travel and visits (which also keeps our carbon emissions low).

Secondly, whilst we aim to create as many pages and transfer as much existing content as possible to your new website, we may also ask some schools with very large sites to participate in the page creation process. So for example, if you wish to go live with more than c50 pages, we would help you to add them yourselves.

Similarly, for photos, we would create a gallery with a few photos for you, then help you to add the rest. For news and diary items, we add 5 of each for you.

Again, although this will not affect most of the schools we work with, by working together in this way, we can keep our prices low for everyone.

The Annual Fee

Our annual support and maintenance fee includes unlimited support by telephone or email, training resources, hosting, and the license to use the Greenhouse Content Management System.

Portfolio breakdown

Around 90% of schools opt for the Bespoke design package.

If budgets are tight, our pre-designed templates are a cost-effective alternative.

Our premium package is suitable for those schools who need the most prestigious website possible.

Mobile-friendly code

Over 50% of your users will look at your site on a mobile device. We will ensure it's quick to load and easy to use.

Content population

There is no limit to the number of pages you can have on the website. We can populate the initial text and supporting documents for a set number of pages. There is no limit to the number of supporting documents we will add.

Design - briefing meeting

For bespoke and premium sites we arrange a meeting where we consider your objectives, target audience, sites you like and why you like them.

For pre-designed sites we mainly manage the process by email.

Design - home page length

For a smoother browsing experience, we would recommend a header, footer and a maximum of 4 panels of content, as per this example.

Design - tabbed panels

A panel split into multiple tabs of content with navigation buttons; rather than consecutive panels of content in vertical order.

Design - mockup - desktop

For bespoke and premium websites we will prepare a mockup of the desktop version of the home page, and make unlimited revisions until you're happy. For pre-designed sites, we will setup your chosen theme and customise with your colours, after which we will allow you to suggest tweaks to the colour.

Design - mockup - mobile

For Premium sites we will prepare a mockup of how the site will look on mobile devices and make any tweaks you suggest. For bespoke and pre-designed sites, we will go straight ahead and build the mobile version, allowing you to suggest tweaks post-build.

Design - mockup - inside pages

For Premium sites we will prepare a mockup of how the site will look on mobile devices and make any tweaks you suggest. For bespoke and pre-designed sites, we will go straight ahead and build the mobile version, allowing you to suggest tweaks post-build.

UI Style Guide

A PDF guide specifying your colour palette, default formats, usage guidance and screenshots of the core designs. See this example.

Build hover effects & transitions

Where possible we like to add subtle movement to elements such as the school logo.

Special build effects

Something special in mind? For example a special animation? Let us know and we'll brainstorm the best way to fulfill your vision.

Fixed menu

As you scroll down the page, a smaller version of the menu remains visible, fixed to the top of the screen.

Curriculum icons

We can design icons for up to 20 subjects which can either link through to individual pages or appear as a popup.

Alternatively, you can create your own curriculum gallery for free in our CMS.

For an example, scroll down to the Curriculum section on the home page of this example.

Social wall

We can embed a standard Facebook or Twitter feed for FREE.

If you'd like something more fancy, our social walls can contain a combination of your latest tweets and CMS news items, displayed either in a panel on the home page or as a slide-out from the side of the screen.

For an example see the Our Socials panel on Oldham 6th Form.

Background video

We can add a video alongside your text or in a popup window FREE.

Alternatively, we can integrate your video into the design of the website, playing in the background of the home page. For an example see Belvedere Academy.

Animated statistics

Make a feature of your most impressive numbers by having up to 5 key statistics count up from zero or appear in an animated graph. For an example see Ravenstone School.

Animated House Points

A variant of animated statistics, we can bring your weekly house points total to life with animated counters.

Photo editing, cut-outs or collages

In our Premium package we allow for 'cutting out' up to 6 images from their background; these can also be combined into a collage like in this example.

Custom inside page style sheets

By default we will ensure that your 'inside' pages reflect the home page styling for a consistent user experience. If desired we can also create specific styling for pages within one of the menu tabs. For example, pages within a 'Sixth Form' section might need a different logo and colours.

Designed inside feature pages

Sometimes there will be a page that requires extra-special love and attention. We will discuss design options with you and code up a compelling user experience.

Mobile app

Our mobile app allows you to send out push notifications to all users (eg parents) or groups of users (eg a class). You have control over app content, which can be automatically updated when you make changes to the website. Visit our Mobile App page for more details.

Photography shoot

Our professional photographers can come to you with their state of the art equipment. A half-day shoot generates around 100-150 photos. A full-day shoot is typically 150-200+ photos. More details on our photography page. Cost savings are available if a shoot is combined with a video or virtual tour.

Video shoot

In the age of lockdowns a video is essential to convey all the great things going on in your school. Show off your facilities and activities and share with the world. For more information visit our video page. Cost savings are available if a video is combined with a photo-shoot or virtual tour.

Virtual tour

If in-person visits are not possible, a virtual tour is the next best option - sometimes better as you have control of what your guests can and cannot see! Show off the key facilities in your school and share with the world. For more information visit our virtual tour page. Cost savings are available if a tour is combined with a video or photo-shoot.

Prospectus

There's something special about a physical document with glossy photos. Formerly prohibitively expensive, we have slashed costs by creating pre-designed templates which can be combined with lower print runs. For more information visit our School prospectus page.

Photo Collage / Montage

In our Premium package we allow for 'cutting out' up to 6 images from their background; these can also be combined into a collage like in this example.
