Project overview

The John Curwen Co-Operative Primary Academy is a school which aim to provide a friendly environment in which every individual child is able to develop their full potential and thrive under the Y-OUR Co-operative values:

  • Yorkshire and Humberside
  • Open to all
  • Unlocking potential
  • Raising aspirations

What they wanted

John Curwen commissioned Wave to design a dynamic and up to date looking website where they could display all the relevant information about their school, the curriculum and any other neccessary information and make it easily accessible. They also wanted to be able to edit content like adding bits of news about the school and upcoming events without having to do any of the difficult coding work.

What we did

BR Web developed Wave's designs and gave John Curwen the ability to add new content themselves after development. We created a WordPress theme from the design and worked from there. We used WordPress as the Content Management System as its very intuitive and easy to use, meaning they could learn the basics of adding and editing content quickly. To give their site a dynamic and up to date look we used jQuery to implement a slider on the homepage and added overlay affects to the navigation and images.
