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

    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.

    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.

    We needed a quick refresh of our website, which is heavily used by prospective and existing parents, staff and pupils. We needed to make sure that our site was flexible to appeal to all our end users and showcased our school. Working with Jem, I was able to quickly turn my thoughts into a brief, and then into a final product.

    Jem clearly knows what she is doing with WordPress, and her work showcases her considerable knowledge and no nonsense approach. I intend to use her again, when required, and would recommend her to others looking for a developer who knows WordPress inside out.

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!)
