Website of the Week: Hawes Side Academy

Published: September 20, 2013

The last time we featured Hawes Side Academy was back in December 2012. Since then the school have upgraded to School Jotter 2 and have had their site redesigned.

The home page is very easy to navigate around, even for the non tech savvy among us. The colourful pictures and colours represent not only the branding of the school, but each section of the website, providing a clear and user friendly site.

The ‘About Us’ page features a video from the Headteacher, Mr. Shepherd, who tells all about the school from its results and use of technology to the school building and clubs it runs. This gives the site a personal and welcoming touch, making you feel part of the school family.

The ‘School Information’ section has, as it suggests, information about the school – however Hawes Side Academy doesn’t just provide the basics. They provide an extensive wealth of information – giving parents, prospective parents, pupils and visitors everything that they could possibly need. This includes information about Pupil Premium, the latest Ofsted report, term dates, staff and extra curricular activities.

Children are a key focus on Hawes Side Academy’s website, using pictures of students on menu buttons and featuring pupils on the school virtual tour.
