Shrewsbury-based design, digital and marketing agency Clear Design has redesigned and developed the website for Prestfelde Preparatory School in Shrewsbury to provide greater usability for pupils, parents, staff and prospective parents.
The newly designed and greatly improved website will act as a key communication tool for parents of students at the co-educational non-selective prep school which aims to develop a love of learning alongside the nurturing of pupil’s individual talents. As a day and boarding school with a wide variety of extra-curricular boarding facilities, the school required a modern and simple way to keep parents and pupils updated on everything from school events, meal plans and match fixtures to meetings. The website provides a platform for the school to demonstrate Prestfelde as an excellent choice to parents considering the school for their child, through the ability to keep the site fully up to date with news and imagery.
Headmaster Mark Groome commented, “We scheduled the redesign of our new website to tie in with a presentation held for parents about future plans for the school. It was an ideal time to launch the site which will prove intrinsic as a platform for communications for parents of pupils at the school going forward. We are delighted with the design, which reflects all the standards and values that the school holds and offers the right impression of our school for prospective parents. It is most important that all the people connected to, or considering Prestfelde have the latest news, updates and information quickly, which is what the site provides.”
Gavin Mills, Managing Director of Clear said, “We are very pleased to have been a part of the redesign and development of the school's website which demonstrates the brilliant result of pairing great design with photography. At Clear we jump at the chance to provide creative solutions for local organisations, and we relished the opportunity to get involved with another project which will benefit so many parents and young people.”
