The Elms School

Even the eldest embrace the future with open arms. Established in 1614, The Elms School Colwall is the oldest business running Umbraco in the world!

The Elms, a local pre-prep and early years school already had a website nearly completed when due to lack of contact and complications with their existing web designer, they approached us to help them.

How We Helped

We took the existing website design and added a Content Management System (CMS) to give The Elms control over the website's content, something that they have taken full advantage of.

Despite having a website design in place and coded up, there were a number of issues with the code used so we quickly rebuilt it making the site far more usable.


The Elms School needed a calendar on their website showing upcoming events, from sports fixtures to school trips. We created a calendar that displayed all the important dates in a timeline format, incorporating a colour coded key which follows you as you scroll down the page. 

Calendar Event

When parents, pupils or teachers click on certain events, they can save the event to their personal diary (whether iPhone, iPad or Outlook). Each event page also displays a map with directions and, if logged in, shows the attending pupils. After the event, The Elms can upload the score and a match report.
