Our Content Management System was originally created for schools, and school websites still form the core of our customer base. Some of our customers have been with us for many years and continue to benefit from our great CMS and outstanding support.

A good website for your school is important and is likely the first port of call for Ofsted when it's time for an inspection. The school website is also a shop-window for prospective parents who are trying to make one of the most important decisions they will make, namely finding the best education for their child. You only get one chance to create a good first impression, and our system allows you to do that.

Your website is a fantastic way of showcasing your school and what it has to offer. Although we supply the CMS so you can manage your site content yourself, we also supply ongoing support and advice on best practice for ensuring you are making the most from your website.

The Machew CMS has all the components you need for managing your school website, giving you the ability to display information in the form of text, images. files and videos, along with core features like news/event management and listing your staff.
