As a first port of call for prospective parents looking for the best school, and a key online tool allowing parents, teachers & staff to communicate, your School or Multi-Academy Trust website has never been more important. At FSE, we specialise in school website design - building striking, modern, beautiful, user-friendly School & Trust websites that get it right.

Our websites are built with the most up-to-date technology, a simple, intuitive content management system and our extensive design expertise to ensure that your website is something you can be proud of and can develop for years to come. Our designs are bespoke and can be paired with a stunning school prospectus brochure and a host of other school marketing items to ensure the best overall school branding.

CMS Features

Contact Us

Easy to use, intuitive & versatile… Our content management system (CMS) combines award-winning technology with bespoke development to fit the needs of our schools and trusts and we think it’s one of the best! The simple interface will enable you to take control of your site and its many features will help you to manage it easily without affecting your school website design.

CMS Features

Responsive Interface
All of our sites are built utilising the very latest technology and include ‘Responsive’ as standard. This technology allows your site to automatically resize and calibrate depending on the size of device you are viewing it with and ensures your school website design always looks good!
Feature News and Blogs
Share all the latest news about your school directly on your homepage, as well as creating a personal bond with new and existing parents through the publishing and archiving of your blog.
Calendar and Events
Manually upload dates and events or automatically sync from a calendar in school. Our calendar also allows you to assign your own categories to allow visitors to filter the events.
Media Gallery
Capture and upload a range of photos, videos and podcasts to showcase the true character and ethos of your school. The whole gallery or certain albums can made private and secure, and can be edited at any time to resize, organise and add captions to any of the media uploaded.
Social Media Feeds
Link your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram & YouTube feeds to your website to keep students informed and encourage more people to follow you.
Announcement Management
Make important announcements to parents, students and staff, which will appear instantly on your homepage.
Secure Log-in Areas
Enable password protected areas of the website to only allow access for those with permission – great for Governor or parent only areas.
Vacancy Manager
Advertise your vacancies directly on the site using the manager. Roles can be added easily and vacancies can be set to remove themselves automatically after the closing date.
Page Level User Management
Set up varying permissions for back-end users to ensure you can keep control of the site and only allow updates where you want them.
Staff and Team
Easily share as much or as little information as required on staff members and departments, including positions, pictures, bios and contact details.
Contact Forms
Our CMS allows you to easily build, fully editable contact forms on any part of the site – choose which email you want to the submissions to go to and share the workload.
Digital Prospectus
Include a digital copy of your existing prospectus on your website which will allow users to flick through the pages by using digital book software.

Responsive School Website Design

As parents, students and staff increasingly use mobile and tablet devices to access sites on the move it is essential that your school website design is fully responsive to allow them to browse and find information with ease, regardless of what type of device they are using. Our school & Multi-Academy Trust websites will automatically re-shape and re-size to fit any screen size beautifully.

Our bespoke approach to our responsive designs will ensure that no features are lost, the navigation is easy to use and the site looks equally engaging and makes the most of your school photography however it is viewed. All of our sites are responsive as standard so, if your current school website is not responsive (or you’re not sure), then get in touch today and have a chat with one of our team...
