Web design and custom CMS for a school

How do you educate prospective parents that Durham School is the best education around?

Durham School is committed to providing a first-class all-round education, and our job was to create a web site to demonstrate that.

With former pupils such as Sir Peter Vardy and Alex Armstrong, we wanted to show that Durham School was one of the finest in the region.


We worked with the Marketing Director at Durham School to create an initial brief of exactly what the School needed.  

We had to consider current pupils, old pupils and prospective pupils. We created a bespoke design that tied in with the School's rich heritage and our developers integrated that with our own custom CMS.

The web site generates more enquiries than their brochure or their app, and is fast becoming the most important piece of marketing material the school has.

"Working with Edward Robertson, from the initial brief for the new Durham School website and then all the way through the design and implementation process has been an absolute pleasure. We are delighted with the final result which has fulfilled our long list of requirements to ensure an efficient, informative and enjoyable experience for all of our visitors. Nothing was too much trouble and our CMS now allows us to control everything at the touch of a button."

The Durham School site is a website that we're very proud of, particularly as Simon and myself are old pupils of the school. It was nice to give something back after so many years!
