Get your website right and you provide a unique, evolving window into life at your school, highlighting your strengths and achievements and communicating your messages to the people that matter.

At FSE, we specialise in building striking, modern, beautiful, user-friendly school websites that get it right.

Our website services use the most up-to-date technology, a simple, intuitive content management system and our extensive design expertise to ensure that your school's 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

If your school or Academy website isn’t giving out the right message then why not arrange a demo, take a look below at some of our website features or have a browse through our portfolio online to see what we can do - we’d love to help!

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 & Academy 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...
