  • Latest Live - March 2020

    March has been an unprecedented month of uncertainty, anxiety and a whole change of routine. It's also been a month of strength, solidarity, community and support - especially in the education sector. 

    We have seen so many cheering stories across social media and on school websites of positive ways that our children are learning from home - whether it's through creative outlets; art, woodwork and music, incredible cakes and bakes, workout routines, school-wide reading sessions, virtual assemblies, sing-along sessions and more. 

    Thank you to all of the Heads, SLT, teachers and support staff within schools & trusts who are navigating these unusual times with positivity, strength and grace. Your commitment and dedication to your students is clear for all to see and is, as always, inspiring.

    We would like to remind anyone who needs assistance with their school website, that we are at the end of the phone or email should you need us for anything.

    We hope that all of our customers and indeed, anyone reading this post, stay safe and well.


    Below are a small selection of the fantastic websites we've launched recently. Congratulations to all 16 of our customers who went live this month with their new school websites.
