We have a proven track record when it comes to working with schools and other educational centres in and around Hertfordshire and the surrounding counties, to provide sound and professional website development and management services.
We offer educational discounts wherever possible to make the cost of reliable website management support affordable within your school’s budget.
We’d be delighted to visit your school to carry out a free, no-obligation, review of your existing school website so please do contact us for more information about our services.
We genuinely love working with schools and our web-based Content Management System (CMS) can be tailored to your precise requirements and loaded with features that enable school staff to manage forthcoming school events, individual class information including termly topics, photo galleries, downloads for parents, school newsletters, and counters for school “houses” where reward or merit house points are earned. Our websites are designed for primary, secondary and higher education institutions including colleges and online learning courses.
The interface is simple to use and various admin rights can be set up to enable “super admins” to have access to all areas of the website or “class admins” to just update their class sections and so on! Simplicity is key here and if you need assistance we are on hand to help! We don’t have a call centre, there is always someone here to assist you, you’ll have access to our online client support area too and we are well aware of the school budget! Our prices are highly competitive, we don’t charge large upfront sums, the development and ongoing maintenance of the website is billed on a monthly basis to assist with cash flow.
We serve our valued customers from 2 locations, one in Lincolnshire and one in Hertfordshire so distance is not an issue for us when it comes to setting up a meeting in any of the surrounding counties!
Our website packages for schools start from a very competitive £70 + VAT per month and after the 18 month minimum contract period we offer a free website redesign or makeover. We pride ourselves on our ongoing commitment to our clients and our dedication to customer retention in the longer term.
So what do our website packages for schools include?
Our monthly fee doesn’t just include the re-design of the website, we include 45 minutes of content changes should they be required, if one month the time allocation is not used or one month an hour of updates are required we are completely flexible about how the time is used and allocated, we are here to help and not be regimented with how we assist our clients with the ongoing maintenance of their websites. Website plugins (ones that add extra features or functionality) are updated regularly, site back-ups are taken regularly so in the event of a member of staff deleting or changing something important we can restore an earlier version!
A security certificate comes as standard with all of our websites, we are on it about data security, backups and protecting our clients against hackers.
“Excellent friendly service. IceStar Media can always be relied on to solve any problems quickly and efficiently. Their knowledge is outstanding and they offer a first-class service. We are delighted with our website which has improved communication and provides opportunities for our pupils to show what they have been learning in school.”
