St Michael’s School

CASE STUDY

Project Overview

St Michael’s is a Church of England Primary School in Wandsworth, London. As a long standing client of Armadillo’s, we were delighted to offer our services in the build of the school’s new, responsive website.

 

The objective for the site, was to improve the design features, site responsiveness, and better usability. The old website had become very large and unmanageable, so we needed to find a solution for streamlining the site and improving the site architecture. Working within the school’s tight budget, we created a bespoke new site, using the latest WordPress version.

Our Approach

Redesigning such large site was a challenge, but a great opportunity to streamline the information architecture and refresh content. With over 250 pages, the aim was to reduce this by half, which would help with improved usability.

 

Our new menu structure allows the user to easily filter through a large amount of content. Using a drop navigation menu and a side menu with sub cateogries, this enabled to the user to easliy find their way through the content.

 

Other features we included in the site, were integrated Google Calendar, Twitter feed, and school videos.

Results

Using the open source power of WordPress, we delivered a more streamlined, scalable and highly flexible platform to see St Michael’s into the future and beyond.

 

The school are extremely happy with the quality of the finished product and their partnership with Armadillo, with ongoing support and website hosting.

 

“We have worked with Armadillo for 5 Years now and they have completed two renovations of our school website. They work incredibly hard to match the ideas that we have and put all of them down on the page. The hours that goes into tweaking and changes is also much appreciated. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs website work done for them.”
