Special School Websites


with a team that has more than 20 years’ experience working exclusively in the education sector.

View Portfolio

We’ve worked with many special schools on their websites and school branding and one thing we have learned is how unique each one is and therefore requires a unique approach when designing a website. We specialise in school website design and will take the time to understand your school and use this information to design a site that matches your specialisms, audience and requirements to ensure your new website will have everything you need.

Our special school websites use the most up to date technology and an intuitive content management system to ensure that your site is something you can update easily and can develop for years to come. Our sites also rate very highly for accessibility ensuring all your visitors can access your information with ease.

Our designs are bespoke and can be paired with stunning school photography or special school prospectus brochures and a host of other items to enhance your 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 differing needs of our special schools and we think it’s one of the best!

The easy to use interface will enable you to learn and take control of your website and its many features will help you to manage the site easily as you update and evolve it. Our school websites also come with technical support and training to ensure you can get the most out of your site from the moment it goes live! 

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

What Our Clients Say...

"From the moment that we first contacted FSE Design about creating a new school website, the level of care and service received were second to none. FSE worked really hard to capture the spirit of our special school in the website design. Nothing was too much trouble. The FSE team is determined to get it right for schools and we could not have asked for a better website provider. Aaron, with whom we worked directly, went out of his way to get everything right for us! Thank you, FSE 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 special school 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 contact us today and have a chat with one of our team.

How We Work

DEMO Image


We’ll visit your school & offer a free, no obligations demonstration of our CMS; not only so you can see our work first hand but also so we can get to know the school and understand your requirements from the project.


We'll hold a design meeting with you to discuss ideas & take a detailed brief for your new website; We will listen to your objectives and take the time to understand your school before designing your new site.


Our designers work hand-in-hand with our account managers & developers to ensure that your website is everything you envisaged and all of our design ideas function perfectly across all platforms and devices.


On completion of the final designs we will build these into the HTML templates at the required W3C standards for usability and accessibility, ready to be integrated into the CMS system.


Once the site is built we will upload your content onto the new site. Ether taking new wording you have written or transferring straight from your current site, we’ll ensure your new website looks great from the start.


Before pushing your new website live, we complete comprehensive testing of your website on all browsers and screen sizes to ensure sure it works perfectly, no matter who’s looking.


We offer a complete training session on our CMS before the website goes live so you feel comfortable making changes to your new site.


Once the all the previous stages have been completed, your site is ready to go live!
