    Primary School Website

    So I'm just thinning out our website and just thinking... how awesome would it be to have a NEW website that doesn't use the lancsngfl server...

    Any company recommendations? What have you done with yours?

    I'm considering trying to make ours whiter, but I don't think white and navy blue look too great together... hmmm. I've done some concept graphics but I'm too scared to upload them straight to the site.

    So the website is: Cherry Fold Community Primary School : if you want a gander, give me ideas etcs.

    I've heard of primarysites and from what I've seen they do a good job.

    Here's a concept banner - assume website has white background...

    First off - swap the navy background for a nice, almost white blue like E6F2F8. Makes it much easier on the eyes!

    See if you can set the width as a percentage rather than as a narrow central column - will scale better across various screen sizes.

    Thought the width might be set - didn't show in the CSS anywhere. That blue background is the work of the web devil though!

    Try Schudio too, they've done the ANME site, and I'm going to ask them about my school site next year too...

    I'm not good enough to design it myself. I need professional help with that

    Definitely need a company in to get me started. I'm just going to get together some prices and some examples and then put them to the new head teacher in September.

    I used to do websites myself, and have done them manually for various things, including the schools I've worked at, but just not got time any more - and especially since everything's gone down the CMS route... Our current site was done by a company called CMT Tech, but really impressed with Schudio's, which is why we approached them about the ANME site... nice and quick to load, and the back-end's fairly simple and organised - plus they're local to us in Bamber Bridge, and really helpful... They were meant to be at the meeting on Thursday but sadly were unable to attend at the last minute...
