UST Agrees Contract For New School Websites

Posted on: 05/12/2018

University Schools Trust (UST) are proud to be working in partnership with Cleverbox to deliver digital excellence within the UST network. 

In early 2019 the two UST schools will launch their new school websites, which will be designed, built, hosted and supported by Cleverbox.

John Middleton, Director of Innovation at UST explains:

“With Cleverbox having created our new UST website, the decision to work with them to create further school sites was an easy one to make. The process of getting our Trust website up and running was smooth and straightforward. It will be fantastic to have all our school websites connected together, and the team at UST really love how easy it is to upload and maintain content using Cleverbox’s content management system.”

On behalf of Cleverbox, Daniel Clackett, Senior Account Director, said:

“Cleverbox are so proud to be working in partnership with UST and are delighted with the positive feedback we have received following the launch of their Trust website. We believe that every Trust is unique, which is why we have delivered a fully bespoke website package to UST to roll out across their entire network of schools. Their websites look fantastic, deliver a fantastic user experience for parents and, critically, are so easy for the schools to maintain and manage – that’s the key to success!”

Both of the UST schools’ Headteachers are excited with the outcome of this partnership. Phil Akerman, Executive Headteacher at St Paul’s Way Trust School, said:

“We have a highly talented and creative team at our school, and the designs for the new website are really wonderful. I want us to be able to promote the great work of our teachers, the successes of our pupils and the excellence of our events. It is also incredibly important that we find new ways to keep connected with our parents and the local community. Our new website will help us do all this”.

At Royal Greenwich Trust School, Headteacher, Dr Richard Marshall, was equally enthusiastic:

“As a growing school, with a great deal happening all the time, we are always searching to find new ways to capture all the latest news and communicate it effectively to as many people as possible. Our existing website doesn’t quite meet all our needs - our new Cleverbox website will be state-of-the-art in comparison. We can’t wait. It will be a great advertisement to all those pupils and staff thinking of joining us in September”.

‘’UST is based on a unique set of partnerships, with 6 world-leading universities and 5 sector-leading organisations. It is wonderful to see how well this has been captured in our Trust website, and I am confident that the new school websites will better capture all that is so wonderful about our schools” says Grahame Price, the Chief Executive Officer of UST.

Make sure you check out the new websites in January!
