Prestfelde School, which was founded in 1928, is a co-educational preparatory school, with high academic standards. Located on the edge of Shrewsbury, it is set amidst 30 acres of beautiful grounds. The school currently has 300 pupils and takes children from the age of three to thirteen across Little Prestfelde, Middle School and Senior School.
As a result of the appointment of the new Head in January 2016, Prestfelde went through a full review of their branding. After having their website designed by a third party with the new branding in mind, they came to us to have it built responsively, with a robust back-end that would allow staff to easily and effectively update and add new content.
Prestfelde wanted parents to be able to access the Parent Portal easily, and for the calendar and sports fixtures to be accessible via the website, so that it became their centre hub of all the necessary information for parents, staff and students.
We built the website in WordPress, an advanced content management system which allows the staff at Prestfelde to easily and effectively update their own site, adding new content as and when they need to. The site was built responsively, so it performs well across mobile and tablet devices.
We built a bespoke calendar system which pulls in events from Prestfelde’s virtual learning environment (VLE), so that staff only need to add and remove items from the calendar once, rather than needing to add the same information to several different systems.
The staff at Prestfelde have been supplied with a modern website which can be easily updated through an intuitive content management system. The website provides a central hub for staff, parents and students at the school, enabling them to easily find relevant information that they may wish to access.
