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.

    Working with Jem has been nothing but a pleasure. From the get go she was friendly and understanding. She knew exactly what I wanted and already had a plan in place from the first phone call!

    She kept to the schedule she laid out and was very transparent the whole way through and I cannot recommend her enough. Even when problems arised (admittadly my own fault) she sorted them out without a fuss. She responded to every question I had in a professional and curteous manner.

    I will definitely be using her in the future for any WordPress work than I need.

    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 to refresh our website and had lots of ideas; Jem was great as well as providing all of the technical expertise she was able to help us think through our design options and we now we have a great website that not only looks good but has additional features such as YouTube videos & training materials.

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!)
