Website of the week – Hillcrest Early Years Academy

Published: April 11, 2016

It’s always great to see outstanding schools choosing School Jotter for building their websites. This week we are looking at the website of the week created by Hillcrest Early Years Academy. The school is based in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire and it has been rated as outstanding by OFSTED in 2014/2015.

What’s great about this website is that the homepage is not used to store all the information related to the school. Instead, the school focused on displaying some nice images of students on the homepage as well as some basic information like contact details, awards and a language bar. Even the menu is unique and it only has five icons with links to other pages regarding curriculum and other relevant information.

The school website features bright colours that make the website look child-friendly which is perfect for the early years academy. One of the things I found under ‘Academy Information’ page is ‘10 reasons to choose Hillcrest Early Years Academy’. I think it’s a great way to promote the strongest aspects of the school to the wider community. Other pages are full of useful information, including learning resources, information for parents, gallery and other relevant content for parents, teachers and pupils.

Overall, a good-looking and informative website created by the Hillcrest Early Years Academy!
