What We Do
After an initial consultation we will create a modern website* for your school that is easy to navigate and very simple to use. Based on a content management system, you will have full control over your site at all times and can update it from anywhere in the world!
*your site will be based on a Schools Websites designed pre-formatted website. Content and images to be supplied by the client.
Typically sites contain a minimum of 6 pages
A home page for your school which shows current information and reflects the values of your school.
A page outlining the history of your school and all of your achievements.
A gallery that is consistent with Department of Education & Science guidelines, showcasing student projects and outings.
A notice board that allows you to keep parents and the community up to speed with all school matters including open days, sports days, tours and holidays.
Individual class pages that can be managed by the class teacher and pupils of your school.
A sports page to highlight your success on the playing field and show parents your school's range of outdoor activities.
A downloads page that parents can use to get information on school policy and perhaps your newsletter.
When completed your site will help parents and the wider community to get all the information that they need about your school thus reducing your administration costs while saving you valuable time and energy.
The internet is the greatest communication tool in human history. It is there for us all to use and we can tailor it to suit our your school's specific needs. Over 67% of the Irish population regularly use the internet to gather information on all kinds of topics on a daily basis.
If your school is not currently using this medium to its full potential you will be wasting a lot of time on outdated methods in keeping your pupils’, parents and your community informed. You will be amazed at the amount of time you can save through the effective management of a simple to use website.

"A Content Management System is an easy to use web application which allows you to create and manage all the information that appears on your school website. It allows users with no knowledge of computer code or web site maintenance to manage their site on a day to day basis keeping all the content up to date and relevant without the costs of paying an external party."
Our Content Management System can be accessed from anywhere in the world and any updates that you make will appear on your website at the click of a button.
We create a unique template for your site which is applied to all pages. You may then change any of the content of the website pages from one place while keeping its general appearance uniform throughout.
Once you log into your Content Management System, all content is separated from the visual presentation of a site. This makes it much easier and quicker to edit. It’s just like using Microsoft Word!
Our Content Management System allows you to give limited access to other site contributors, eg a student can have limited access to a 'Class Page' or a parent to a 'Notice Board' page.”
