Findon High School

Modern education website designed to attract new students and increase engagement with the school network.

Building the cornerstone for a student-centred learning culture

Located in the western suburbs of Adelaide, Findon High School embarked on a change of direction to focus on student-centred learning. Their redeveloped website is a cornerstone of their new culture, breaking the mould of traditional education with its modern, fun aesthetic. The website was designed to both attract new students and increase engagement with current students and parents, providing more value and making it easy to get in touch.

Project Goals & Our Solution

Findon High School wanted their new website to fulfill a number of goals, including to:

  • Attract new students
  • Increase engagement with parents and students
  • Raise awareness of school activities

After extensively road-mapping the project with key stakeholders, our solution was to:

  • Create a modern, intelligently designed website to set Findon High School apart
  • Optimise the Enrolment Feature UX to book more principal tours
  • Build with a new CMS and architecture to improve content management
  • Integrate website with other platforms and portals

Modern education website with a difference

Findon High School wanted to break the mould of the traditional education website and create a visually appealing website that would engage parents and students alike. The modern and fun aesthetic of the redeveloped website reflects the newfound goal of the school to focus on student-centred learning with a new culture.

A main function of the new website is to sign up potential parents and students for the Principal’s Tours that are run every term. Findon High School wanted website users to be able to sign up for these tours online, quickly and easily so they could attract more students to their school. An optimised UX pathway now increases the number of online conversions by connecting with a simple contact form that allows busy parents to enquire in a matter of minutes.

Simple yet powerful content management and integrations

Built on WordPress CMS, Findon High School takes advantage of the powerful and user-friendly content management tools. This allows them to easily create content for their various user groups including students, parents and staff. Findon High School can now upload and edit information and resources on their website quickly and easily, so the entire school network benefit greatly from the new website. Staff at Findon High School are now able to raise awareness of what the school is doing with an easy to access news section on the website and downloadable newsletters.

Though the website is the main point of communication for Findon High School, each of their other platforms and portals all serve an essential role. Because of this, we incorporated many of these channels into the website through numerous integrations. Now, links to official social media accounts are prominently displayed across the website to help keep parents and students engaged. Additionally, various useful portals for parents, staff and students are quickly accessible through the main navigation bar on the website.

Results

The Digital Embassy have delivered a beautifully designed and user-friendly platform that provides both the school network and Findon High School with a seamless digital experience. Findon High School can now successfully share news and resources with easy content management ability, while the various website users from students to parents can enjoy the modern navigation, relevant content and a simple way to get in touch on the contact page.
