I designed and developed a new site for the school to allow them to publicise their news and events, details of their curriculum and day-to-day school rules and regulations.

The site has a simple clear design that employs the school's purple and green colour scheme and the Helvetica typeface (Arial on Windows) typeface used on all their branding. It makes liberal use of the many excellent photos of school life commissioned by St Margaret's.

I integrated the site with the ExpressionEngine content management system to allow school staff to maintain the site's content and imagery. The design employs responsive web design techniques to help ensure it displays appropriately on as many different browsing devices as possible.
