Kings Norton Girls’ School

Birmingham-based Kings Norton Catholic Girls’ School & Sixth Form

Kings Norton Girls’ School approached me after a word of mouth recommendation on twitter looking for a rebuild of their existing website which was hosted on an expensive proprietary system.

We redesigned the KNGS site and rebuilt it on WordPress. Keeping the familiar structure but with improved navigation, a re-structured home page, fully responsive pages this site also benefits from a massive speed boost thanks to optimised images, use of CSS over images and an overall reduction in HTTP requests.

The Kings Norton website is hosted with Clook, my recommended WordPress hosting provider.

    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.

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

    We commissioned Jem to create a new school website. We wanted a website which was well ordered, accessible with a simple design and, most importantly, easy to update by various, non technical members of staff.

    Jem provided us with really useful design ideas which helped us give her an idea of what we wanted. Jem very quickly produced a new website, which looks very impressive. Jem then provided an excellent training session which enabled us to add our own pages and menus. Throughout the whole process Jem has been quick in answering our many questions and her suggestions have always been very helpful.

    We have found Jem to be extremely professional, helpful and supportive and we would thoroughly recommend Jem to any school looking for a new website.

    After having numerous difficulties with another website designer, we asked Jem to provide some assistance. Jem managed to overhaul our website and provide a user friendly site that we are thrilled with. She is extremely thorough, and knowledgeable – which gives us confidence that we are getting the best care for our site. She has provided support throughout challenging times when we have needed information to be readily available for parents. All we can say is, we are more than happy, and fully recommend Jem. If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

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!)
