In today’s digital age, having an engaging and informative school website is crucial. It serves as the first point of contact for students, parents, and prospective families seeking enrolment information, making it essential to create a lasting impression. At Modular Media, we understand school website design, and we are passionate about crafting great websites for Australian schools.
What is the purpose of a school website?
This question varies depending on the needs of the existing school community and the future direction you intend to pursue. It is the exact reason a school needs a custom solution from experts who understand schools from the perspectives of those who work and learn within it and those you want to invite into that community.
Your first obligation is to provide your existing school community with all the essential information and tools required to participate in the daily life of teaching and learning within your school and then to showcase the culture, features and benefits your school has to offer prospective students.
With years of experience in school website design and a dedicated team of professionals, Modular Media has established itself as a leader in creating outstanding school websites. Our expertise goes beyond just design; it extends to understanding the intricacies of the education sector. We appreciate the importance of user-friendly navigation, accessibility, and content that speaks to your school’s mission and values.
Furthermore, we understand what schools don’t need as too often we deal with clients who have created bloated repositories of irrelevant documents and information that look disorganised and really take away from your core values and purpose.
We firmly believe that one size does not fit all regarding school websites, and your needs will vary depending upon whether you are a primary school, high school, catholic, independent, or public school. Every educational institution is unique, and your website should reflect that. Our team takes the time to understand your specific requirements, objectives, and branding. We work closely with you to design a school website that perfectly aligns with your vision and provides you with design ideas and solutions.

Support, Support, Support
We frequently deal with schools that paid a small fortune to build a website and then left the school with no idea how to use it effectively and efficiently. That is not us…
We provide high-quality training to all our clients on how to operate and update your website. We provide an ongoing support package to ensure your website is always current, secure, fully functional, and presents your school’s highly professional public face.
We offer two web platforms that look amazing, One being extremely simple to use and maintain from a school perspective, and the other is a far more granular and customisable experience requiring a greater level of knowledge and support to get the most out of it. The choice is yours.
Either way, we have you covered if and when things get complicated or need a refresh.
Accessibility and Compliance
Ensuring that your school’s website is accessible to all users, including those with disabilities, is not just a legal requirement but also a moral obligation. We are well-versed in accessibility standards and guidelines, and we take pride in creating VRQA compliant and inclusive websites that contain the essential policies but don’t make these rarely accessed documents the focal point of your website.
