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.

    Magiboards has been working with Jem for 9 years. She single handedly developed and continues to maintain the Magiboards’ website. Our brief to Jem was to design something which we can easily update ourselves. This has worked very well, leaving our budget to be spent on continually adding new areas to the website.

    An excellent web programmer, Jem understands what we are trying to achieve and always delivers. I would highly recommend Jem to any company wishing to use her services.

    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.

    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.

Why I love working with WordPress

I've been using WordPress since the heady days of version 1.2 and developing WordPress websites commercially since version 1.5 (released in 2005!)
