A brand new website for Ipswich High School for Girls has received top marks across the board after launching earlier this month.
After visiting the school and meeting the ambitious team behind its ongoing success, we were inspired by the fantastic surroundings at the 84 acre site and the dedicated approach the school shows to achieving academic excellence.
It was clear that this project would focus on showcase imagery, dynamic content led features and clear navigation to create a school website unlike any other, so our team here at Fat Media set to work…
The result is a unique, personality led website; created with a new navigation structure and tab feature which allows students, parents and visitors to access the very latest information quickly and easily.
Each page works on a dynamic content template, allowing the site to be updated using eight tile effect features including latest news, future events, gallery, student interviews, social media and more. News, events and social media feeds also feature prominently on the site and are updated and streamed from the homepage throughout key content areas.
The fully responsive site even features content from the Head teacher in her very own blog, as well as contributions from the school’s Arts Prefect who even assists with social media management and the creation of You Tube videos of the school!
The school is very proud to have a strong alumnae following and have dedicated an area of the site to bring together former pupils and schedule events, they are also proud of their links with GDST (Girls’ Day School Trust) and GSA (Girls’ School Association) both of which are featured links from the main website.
Oona Carlin, Head teacher at the school is delighted with the new site:
"The overall project has been a genuine pleasure from start to finish. The original sales team were incredibly impressive and won the tender hands down. The design team, led by Ian at the outset took on board and worked with our brief to create a beautiful, fresh, user-friendly website that we are very proud to share with our parents and wider school community.
This website is totally innovative in our Schools' Market, and it is so refreshing to be encouraged to step away from traditional design and have fun instead! We have received so much praise for the site since it was launched. Thank you very very much!”
The project has been an excellent addition to the growing portfolio of education sector websites which have been produced at Fat Media over the last year.
