Isleworth School is based in the suburb of Bishopdale, northwest Christchurch. They cater for children from Year 1 to Year 6.
Isleworth School contacted us looking to have their existing website redesigned. They wanted to have the ability to update their website’s content themselves, without having to rely on a web developer. In order to do this, they required a user friendly content management system that could easily be updated. Their staff also needed training in the use of the new system, to make them as self-sufficient as possible.
The redesigned website is built using Wordpress (an open source content management system), which enables Isleworth School staff to easily update and maintain the entire site’s content. Within WordPress, we incorporated various custom sidebar widgets to make it as simple as possible for staff to display Google Calendar events, show recent tweets and link to their latest monthly newsletter.
We wanted a fresh new look for our website and the ability to update pages and add latest news items for our parent community. Design Sight worked closely with us to achieve these aims. They were responsive to our requests and communicated to us at each stage of the project to ensure we were happy with progress. They were only too willing to make changes or adjust the layout to suit our needs and continue to work with us and assist us with advice as we learn to manage the website independently. We are extremely happy with the result and have had a lot of positive feedback from people viewing our site. ~ Jeanette Shearer (Principal)
