Website audits

Each year we will audit your website to ensure it meets the statutory guidelines set out by Ofsted. We will also suggest possible improvements to help you better promote your school to a wider audience.


We can record school performances throughout the year using our high quality cameras and sound recorders. Using our duplicator machine and disc printer we can provide you with bespoke discs in protective clam shell cases.
