St Bede’s Catholic Middle School

The St Bede’s Catholic Middle School website was built on WordPress by Network Manager Matthew Setchell.

Matthew approached me about giving the school’s home page a quick makeover — highlighting important information and social media integration — as well as making it easier to browse the site by utilising WordPress widget and menu technology. As well as tweaking the design of the St Bede’s school WordPress website, I optimised the theme to remove legacy code and to make it easier for Matthew to update in the future.

Matthew had this to say about the work on the St Bede’s website:

    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!)
