Strafe Creative -
Castle Donington College
Delivering an increase in online engagement through a new responsive website inline with their academy conversion.
  • Client: Castle Donington College
  • Discipline: Web Design & Build

Castle Donington School is a highly successful, student focussed academy based in the East Midlands. The academy approached Strafe Creative to redesign their existing website to promote the quality of the school and its facilities.


It was established in early meetings that ease of navigation was paramount to the success of the project. A simple structured approach to the navigation was favoured, arranging content based on importance through categories and subcategories for efficient browsing and a seamless user experience. A responsive website was crucial for the client to allow parents to gain access to important information whilst on the move using their mobile device.

Increase in user engagement compared to the previous site
The average time on-site per session more than doubled within the first four months.
Mobile usage has seen a 82% increase since site launch.
