School Websites, Perth
At Refined IT, we make impressive school websites. That’s the simple answer to what we do. The more complex one is that we draw on our exhaustive knowledge of design, technology, and search engine optimisation (SEO) to create a unified approach to school web design. This results in school websites that look great – ultra-modern, high quality and on-brand – but are also efficient, responsive, and search engine-friendly.

We also use our SEO expertise to help your school be a formidable force in the online market. Having a strong search engine presence is about more than keywords: it’s a complex methodology that takes time, discipline and an in-depth understanding of the market and our integrated strategy goes the extra kilometre.

School Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) & School Google Ranking
Without getting too technical, SEO is a range of techniques and tactics that can help you soar to the top of search engine rankings for your schooling area.
Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts – and firms offering band-aid solutions only yield short-term results. We think more long-term with our strategy, centring on consistent quality and content that follows Google webmaster guidelines. We use deliberate keywords, but so seamlessly they’re practically imperceptible. The result? high-ranking websites that outperform the competition and go the distance long term.
Copywriting & Communication
Sometimes you just can’t get the words right but in a competitive online market, you can’t afford not to. We work in tandem with experienced copywriters to create words that communicate the heart of your school in a polished yet accessible way – while strengthening your Google ranks. Having professionally-written words on your website not only makes your business seem legitimate, it succinctly conveys information and builds a connection with present and prospective parents, students and staff.
Understanding School Website Needs
We have a proven track record with creating websites for educational institutions. This means we understand the education department and school system – and its unique needs and objectives. Our modern yet classic designs perfectly tow the line between looking fresh and engaging, and keeping with traditional values.
We’re also well acquainted with the nuances of schools’ SEO terminology. For example, do people in your state search for ‘high school’ or ‘secondary school’? Do they type in a postcode or do they filter by academic or sports programs? Our SEO experts hone in on precisely what your potential audience are typing into the search bar, then optimise your website so it leads the pack.
