Harrow Primary is an independent school in North West London. The school started out small with less than 20 pupils and grew considerably over a few years. As the school grew, it’s existing identity did not reflect the quality and ethos the school stood for.

The challenge was to create an identity based on the existing logo so the transition process would be a lot smoother. The new identity was received well by the Governors and Parents of the school and has now successfully been implemented across all new collateral and signage.


The first Harrow Primary School website was developed using WordPress. The client felt the design lacked direction and was incredibly hard to update. The WordPress interface was cumbersome and lacked the simplicity and functionality Harrow School required.

The core features of the website are:

  • Ability to add new pages – top level and sub section
  • Add content to pages using our flexible and incredibly powerful ‘block builder’ to drag and drop content blocks
  • News Section with option to show selected items on the Home Page
  • Easy to update / add home page dynamic slider with text
  • Calendar
  • Gallery – upload any image size and the CMS resizes and crops the images to the correct size real time and generates a pop up.
  • Document Management via the CMS so any uploaded document is displayed as a link automatically with the associated file type icon

The Design Factory redesigned and redeveloped the school website from the ground up using our proprietary Content Management System (CMS). Our CMS is extremely powerful and incredibly easy to use.

Since the launch of the new website the staff at Harrow School have found it incredibly easy to keep the site up to date. What took them hours in WordPress can now be done in minutes using our bespoke CMS built specifically for Schools.

The website has now become a valuable tool for the School and Parents.
