Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust is a family of schools aiming to develop articulate, resilient and ambitious students, regardless of background, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to excel in modern Britain. With over 3000 students across 4 different communities in Birmingham, the Trust needed 6 new websites to reflect the Trust’s aim and values whilst retaining the individual identities of the schools and reflecting the interactive and informative environments that the academies provide. Utilising each school’s separate colour palette as a key differentiator, we focused on creating graphical elements using shapes from the logos in each of the school’s colours and brought each school’s site to life by adding animation and parallax scroll to each of the sites. All sites were designed for the user, fully optimised and scalable and are both informative and engaging for parents, staff, kids and the community. We used WordPress for the content management system (CMS), creating a bespoke and responsive theme. All templates in the back-end were designed in a way that the client was able to add as much or little content now or in the future. We strive to provide a solution that is future proofed for our clients. We are on hand to help at any point after the launch of a project, but we also enjoy seeing how easy a client can take control and continue to evolve their site.Read more
Following recommendations and research, in June 2017 Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust selected Happy Giraffe to design and launch six new websites for the Trust. Sian Williams, Digital Account Manager was assigned as our main point of contact. Taking into consideration our initial brief, she and the team at Happy Giraffe worked tirelessly over a four-month period to ensure that our needs were met, offering guidance and suggestions where requested or necessary. Sian’s communication was always professional and friendly; response times were efficient, and queries always answered. Following the launch of the sites, the numerous queries that were raised from various individuals though-out our Trust were responded too and further addressed in user friendly training sessions that took place on site. From my personal experience, I would not hesitate in recommending Happy Giraffe’s services.
