A few months back we attended the launch party for one of our websites at Bush Hill Park in London, and were really overwhelmed by the positive responses we received from parents, teachers and students. BHP is one of our first “uber” themes – a new type of theme designed to be on the cutting edge of web design. These fully-responsive school websites feature large images spanning their pages, bold colours and a tile-based system of navigation.
Whether you’re on a PC, phone or tablet, the Bush Hill Park website is very easy to navigate. There’s no fiddly menus or awkward links to click, and all information is quickly available behind the tiles or large options. The use of icons on buttons also helps out the parents at the school – a relatively large number of whom do not speak English as a first language (also available is the option to Google Translate all pages – a feature standard on all Jotter sites).
It’s not just about what you can see on the surface though – Bush Hill Park make use of the full range of School Jotter apps. Whether the pupils are building their own Portfolios, learning from Learn or sharing information on Forums, all can be done from within the School Jotter environment. While the parents can easily navigate the external-facing website, students and teachers can take full advantage of our internal-facing apps.
It was a great privilege to be able to attend the launch of one of our customers’ websites, and that it was of such a high quality really was the icing on the cake. We’re really proud of what we’ve been able to achieve working with Bush Hill Park, and wish them the best of luck going forward.
