As their tagline suggests Breckenbrough are a bit different to most schools. In a Victorian country house in North Yorkshire, it is a unique setting for educating boys with learning difficulties. They pride themselves on quality education but in a more friendly and fun enviroment, designed specially to help the boys relax.
When they approached us to design and build their new website they brought a lot of ideas and enthusiasm. They were very keen to get their core values across to a range of different people who use the site. It also needed to set them apart from the vast array of boring, functional school websites.
We visited the school throughout the project to gain a full understanding of their core values and the aims for the website.
To help get across the unique surroundings we put them in contact with a trusted photographer who really captured the friendly atmosphere.
We explored multiple options for how the homepage and internal structure would work as they had very specific requirements.

"This has certainly raised some interesting challenges and got everybody thinking. The site structure in particular needed a lot of discussion and planning to get it right. We love a challenge though and think the finished website really captures the essence of the school and its people."
