We are experts at creating affordable school websites for schools throughout the UK. Our approach encompasses your school’s entire online marketing strategy, not just your website.
Getting your school website redesigned can be a really expensive and complicated process. Our way is different – we work with your budget to propose a solution with your end goals in mind. We’ve even turned around the design, build and launch of a school’s website all within 4 weeks.
By working with us you get to experience the true benefits of having an irresistibly well-designed website that doesn’t just look great for your school, but also works hard and generates enquiries and enrolments, allowing you to relax and get on with what you’re good at. We also provide graphic design services too, so we can ensure all your school’s marketing material is consistent and on-point with your new website.
You don’t need to worry about measuring whether your new school website is performing either, because we’ll do all that for you. Our philosophy is to be your outsourced web design department, always there when you need advice and always being proactive, looking out for any margins that can help your school get ahead.

We approached Authentic Style with a very specific brief for our updated school website, as well as an extremely tight deadline. The Authentic team were great at listening to and understanding our requirements, developing concepts for the site which were exactly in line with what we had in mind. They were able to quickly adopt a few design changes in the early stages and their efficiency meant they could move swiftly onto the site build. During the build, communication between us and the Authentic team was easy and efficient. We were all extremely pleased with the outcome and, thanks to the training provided by the team, we are now able to easily update and maintain our own site. Staff, students and parents are all delighted with the new St Mary’s site.”
Highly recommend Will and the team at Authentic Style, Dorset. They are a talented bunch who took our brief and over delivered. We are delighted with our new website which is fast, responsive, easy to use and beautiful to look at.
We want to know your school’s story, your motivations and your future plans to help us build a picture of where you are and where you want to be. Listening is key here and will allow us to propose the correct solution that is going to yield the best results for your school.
Did you know your existing school website holds the key to your future success? By analysing how people are finding and interacting with your website now, we have a much more rounded picture of what is and isn’t working and where there are opportunities.
To be a success, your school website needs to be a pleasure to use, provide value and be easy to use on all devices. We start by having a team whiteboarding session to explore how we can lay out your site and then present polished wireframes for your review.
Templates and off-the-shelf solutions are cheaper, but restrictive, and will hold your school back. With our custom approach your new school website is designed from a completely blank canvas without limitation. This allows us to craft a custom look and feel true to your school’s values.
Once you’ve approved the designs we’ll begin integrating your school website with WordPress so content and images are fully editable. We’ll also ensure your school website is optimised for Google and fully tested on desktop computers, tablets and mobiles.
Once your school’s website has been built and the content has been added, we will fully test it to make sure nothing has been missed. We’ll then share a link for you to view your new website on our test server. Once approved we’ll make it live!
We offer full training once your website is live. This usually takes 30-45 minutes and can be delivered over the phone or in person. This leaves you confident that you have all the knowledge you need to edit and add news, multimedia and make content changes to your new school site.
It’s our philosophy to have your best interests at heart, so we’ll regularly analyse your website’s performance to help you squeeze every last drop of success from it. We use a variety of tools that let us see how your visitors interact with your website so any alterations we make are well informed.
You may also see this as an opportunity to refresh your school’s printed marketing material. Whether it’s prospectus design, or exhibition stands, leaflets and posters, our designers can bring all of your offline printed material up to date to match the look of your school’s website.
We build all our school websites with SEO in mind. After all, driving traffic to your website is essential. We can also help monitor and improve your school’s Google rankings on a monthly basis and propose content (and even help write it), so your school is publishing quality content.
Your new school website, custom-designed, easy to update and Google optimised from the start.
To ensure your school’s marketing material is consistent with your new website, we can also help your school in the following areas, if required.
We also offer a monthly service producing creative design work for your school’s social media updates, ensuring they grab attention and are consistent with your school’s brand.
