Website Services

Helping progressive schools get a site that works

Our sites are for schools that realise the importance of marketing and the role of a website in engaging with the people you need to be talking to in order to increase your student numbers.
Our auditing, editing and content creation consultancy services allow you to turn your existing site into the powerful admissions tool that it needs to be as we enter a decade of falling student numbers.

How are we different to other providers?

If you have one of our sites, or if you work with us to improve your existing site, it will be set up to do the job that school sites almost always neglect to do. Your site will not simply be where current parents get information, it will be where you tell your story to prospective parents.

If you don’t focus on parents of prospective pupils and students when designing and using your site, then that site is doing nothing to fill your classrooms.

Your site will be...

  • Designed to serve BOTH your primary audiences – current and prospective parents. 

  • Clear and easy to navigate. Any parent should come to your website and immediately find all the information they need.

  • Your digital prospectus. Your site will sell your school all year round, not just during admissions season.

  • Accessible on all devices. Keep in mind your audience will most likely be on the go and looking at your website on a small screen. We make sure it works for them. 

Your site could look like this...

The Bottom Line...

Recent research by Parent Ping found that the thing parents did most often when choosing a school was to visit the website. They did this twice as often as looking at a prospectus and more often than asking people about the school or attending an open event.

Your site is where prospective parents will go to get information and get a feel for the school. And they will keep coming back to that site, especially if they are undecided about their choice of school.

What our clients think

Beyond a commercial relationship

Being on first name terms with people who ‘get’ the school, its context, and its aspirations, are very important and Comms for Schools demonstrate a level of interest and care that appears to go well beyond a commercial relationship.
