St Edmund’s College is England’s oldest Catholic school offering an all round co-education for students from 3 to 18 for families from all faiths. The school’s tradition and values was something that they wanted to convey across the new website.
Whilst St Edmund’s College is an historical school, they are innovative in their approach to education. The site highlights this through its subtle animations and clean design which engages the user on an interactive journey.
One of the key requests during the design phase of the project was the use and importance of the school across the homepage of the site. We incorporated this shape into the structure of the homepage which allows for signposting to the aims and ethos of the school. This works seamlessly with the design but also adds interest using movement to draw the user to this important area.
The site uses traditional navigation ensuring users are only ever a couple of clicks away from the information they need. Clear editable signposting throughout the homepage allows the school to chop and change the information they deem important at the time. The whole site is configured and built from components which can be used on all pages throughout which are interchangeable and easily edited by the school.
St Edmund’s College is built on a WordPress CMS, the flexibility and scalability of the software provides our developers with the platform to develop a truly outstanding website.
