    School website Companies

    Hi

    Just wanted to ask everyones opinions on a good website company to design a Primary school website its most likely going to be geared towards parents to keep them up to date with info etc (so not to look kiddish). So any ideas on companies you have used that are good or know about? Cheers

    You could look at a CMS Joomla, Drupal etc you could have a site up and running quite quickly. Also its FREE

    You're more than welcome to give us a call, one we've recently completed Welcome to Milbrook Junior School - Millbrook Junior School

    If you're interested in a basic layout we'll offer a large discount

    Thanks for the responses guys keep them coming! lol . I am basically running some surveys for the Teachers, parents and children to fill out to get feedback once thats done i will do a break down of a site map etc and then proceed with looking to contact a company or what not.

    I picked up a few contacts at the recent BETT fair including primary site and and school website just wanted to get more info from this awesome geeky community

    So right now I am not ready to roll with contacting anyone more of a case of being ready when i do roll.

    I've made all of my sites using WordPress with the theme created in something called Artisteer (Artisteer - web design software and joomla template maker) it dosn't cost to much and makes quick layout changes easy (still having some know how of web design will help you tweek).

    Yeah its a useful bit of kit - I used it to make my own site (recommendmeapc.co.uk - Advice on the best PCs) my last schools site (Langtree School: Home) and a few others.

    Hi James,

    That effect with the tags on your recommendmeapc.co.uk is really cool, im also abit of a wordpress fan but never seen that before, is it a plugin or a style you've applied?

    Cheers
