St Michaels is a Catholic and comprehensive college based in the Bermondsey, South London that caters for student at GCSE and A-level grades (ages 11-18).
We’ve worked closely with the college for a number years building a great working relationship and picking up a few gems along the way. Being connected to various school networks has given us deep insight into the design and build of successful education focussed websites.
The college had gone through a huge structural transformation and extension and so felt it was necessary to follow suit with a redesign and build of the website, as well as the design and print of a new school prospectus – both jobs of which were awarded to us.
We approached this project as a rework from the ground up and collated valuable information from teachers, pupils and parents by means of focus-groups. We were able to look retrospectively at the underlying issues that they faced when using the website.
Almost all cases were related to requests for new functionality and how it no longer reflected the St Michaels brand. Given the change the college had gone through, we agreed.
