Church Hill Middle School

Church Hill Middle School is a Redditch RSA Academy school based in Worcestershire.

I was approached by Church Hill Middle School in July 2016 who were looking to redesign their existing WordPress-based school website to bring it in line with other websites in the same academy trust.

Tasked with creating a design that appealed to middle school students and their parents, I approached local design agency matm who, with my WordPress theme design brief and expert guidance, created a website design mock-up that was a hit first time:

With the bespoke theme design approved, I set about coding the custom WordPress theme from scratch, integrating existing website elements and new photography, utilising WordPress plugins such as Soliloquy (sliders) and my custom media locations and base theme functionality work.

The new WordPress theme went live in early December 2016.

    I was close to giving up after 8 years as a blogger. No matter what I did or who I got to help me, the hacker was one step ahead. That is until I enlisted the help of Jem Turner who managed to rid my blog of hacks and give me the confidence to blog again.

    We wanted to update our old website, Jem came highly recommended and I can see why. She had lots of great ideas and design skills, nothing was too much trouble, with very prompt replies to our emails. The end result blew me away, and I would recommend her web design services to anyone. 100% total satisfaction.

    Jem re-designed our website for us, ensuring it is now engaging, user-friendly and fantastic-looking. Highly recommend.

    Jem has been unflinchingly helpful with every stage of the development of the Albion site, and has helped us keep it up to date and functioning effectively, solving problems as they have arisen. I am a techno-phobe, but Jem has been unfailingly supportive, helpful, always friendly and efficient. Also her rates seem really good value, but don’t tell her I said so.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.0 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
