Former pupil helps Stafford Grammar School to boost its online presence...

When Stafford Grammar School’s board of governors decided it was time to bring the school’s website up to date the Stafford Website Company was the natural choice. Influential in its decision was the company’s work on the design and development of a fresh new website for Stafford Preparatory School, a contract for which Stafford Website Company had fought off stiff competition.

This, combined with the company’s no-nonsense approach, comprehensive plan for meeting the brief and fair pricing meant that the board had an easy decision. The fact that the team is led by a former pupil of the school, Penny Gamble, was a happy coincidence, as head teacher Mr Darley explains:

We wanted to bring our website up to speed so that it provided a visitor experience that reflects the ethos of the school. The objective was to create a professional, attractive site that would serve as a prospectus for parents considering sending their children to the school in addition to providing an online platform where information could be made available for existing parents and students. We also wanted a website that we would be able to update ourselves quickly and easily.

The Stafford Website Company had recently developed a website for our colleagues at Stafford Preparatory School, which we were very impressed with, so we had a feel for the quality of the company’s work. The fact that we know Penny from her time as a pupil at the school was an added bonus – it’s always a pleasure to see what our pupils go on to achieve.”

The new Stafford Grammar School website, which can be viewed at www.staffordgrammar.co.uk has been designed to provide a sleek, professional website that is easy to manage. Features include a bespoke content management system with auto-feed of news headlines to the home page, to help keep this page relevant and up to date, and an events section that integrates with Google calendar. Penny says:

The brief was to provide Stafford Grammar School with an online presence that would serve the dual needs of existing and prospective parents and students while providing the web administrator with a simple interface that would allow them to keep the site up to date in house. I particularly enjoyed working on this project as, as a former pupil, I have a real insight in to what the school stands for. It was a pleasure to visit the school again - it’s now been ten years since I left!

The Stafford Grammar School website is just one of a host of website projects that the Stafford Website Company is presently working on for local clients.
