Beautiful school websites don’t need to cost the earth

Table of Contents

With rising costs adding more pressure on budgets, schools are always looking at ways to cut costs and get better value for money. Often the school website is one of the areas that gets neglected when looking to cut costs, so when an existing supplier then unexpectedly increases their costs dramatically, this can cause havoc. Having an engaging school website can help with a number of key challenges schools are currently facing so we’ve put together a few of our top reasons why you should consider changing to a Juniper school website.

Design options for all budgets 

If you’ve been involved in procuring a new website for your school in the past, you will know that the cost of a new school website can vary depending on the provider but also the type of website you choose. There are templated and predesigned options available for smaller budgets but if you’re looking for a bespoke school website, the cost will be dependent on your requirement.  

Juniper’s bespoke websites can be created and built to meet your requirement and budget. We’ve been creating websites for more than 20 years, so our experienced team can craft something that’s as unique as you are. When you want to update your website, the proprietary content management system gives you the flexibility to add and change pages as well as update your homepage. It’s also possible to add additional bespoke elements* to your bespoke website once it’s live so your website can evolve and grow with you.  

Support 

Our services go beyond creating beautiful school websites, we’re in it for the long haul. The annual fee for our websites includes hosting, a licence for our software to edit and maintain your website and unlimited support.  

Our experienced support team is on-hand for any technical queries you have. There’s also a wealth of online help resources and training webinars to help you to use the software to update your website.  Once your Juniper website is live, you’ll have a dedicated Customer Success Manager who will provide ongoing guidance and tips to help you get the most out of your investment with us.  

No surprises  

Working with us, you can be rest assured that we will be upfront with you on our costs and what we’ll do for you. We will take time to understand your requirement and we will always recommend the best solution for you and your budget. Our template and predesign websites are a fixed price so you can be certain on what you’ll get for the price you pay. If you choose a bespoke website, we will scope your requirement fully at the start of the project and outline all the elements that will be included. The all-in annual fees also allow you to budget each year for your website.   

All-in-one platform 

The Juniper platform is much more than just a website. There are additional communication modules to help you engage with parents and your school’s community. We have modules for email, SMS, digital newsletters, club and parents’ evening bookings as well as collecting online payments and a mobile app. Whatever your challenge, our intelligent solutions will help to make your website work harder for you.  

One supplier that does it all 

We have built more than 7,000 websites for schools and trusts, making us the UK’s leading provider of education websites. As part of the Juniper Education Group, we also support schools with everything from HR and finance to curriculum and assessment tracking. Collectively we work with over 12,000 schools and trusts – the only education partner with all the answers under one roof.
