School Site Press has been designed and developed specifically for schools, colleges, and kindergartens. We wanted to provide a school website design service that enables education establishments to have a professional, affordable and easy to use site.
School Site Press is the idea of website designer and web entrepreneur Neil Forrester.
Neil owned and operated a succesful web design agency for over 10 years. During this time Neil created sites for many businesses (including schools) and wanted to specialise in the education sector.
Focusing on school website design allowed us to address common issues school website owners & webmasters faced.

Common issues School Site Press resolves
Commissioning a web design agency to create a ‘one-off’ site for your school can be a time consuming and expensive undertaking. Having created school websites in the past we have a good understanding what a school site needs in terms of functionality and site structure.
Our School Site Press model (modified to suit your school) provides everything your school website needs to be up and running quickly. The design includes: pre-defined page structure, pre-designed layouts that can be modified, easy to follow tutorials, ticket support and more!
Our School Site Press model also allows us to sell our school website product as an affordable monthly subscription for only $245 per month inc GST. There are no lock-in contracts. As long as your school subscription is valid you have a School Site Press website.
If your subscription payment ever fails don’t worry. Your site will stay ‘live’ and we’ll make every effort to contact you to resolve the issue.
Maintenance, updates and security
One of the main issues many school webmasters face is the ongoing website maintenance, applying updates and keeping security tight to avoid hackers.
With a School Site Press website you don’t ever need to worry about updates, backups and security ever again as the subscription you pay includes these services.
All updates and security measures are applied to a staging site first to ensure everything works correctly. Once everything has been tested and approved, the updates are applied to your site.
In addition to updates and security we also take regular backups go your site so we can roll back to a working version if that is ever required.
Designed with WordPress + Divi
Each School Site Press website has been created with WordPress. According to the WordCamp site, there are currently over 75 million sites that use WordPress so its likely you’ll be familiar with the interface. If you’re not familiar with administrating a WordPress website, we have created a growing series of comprehensive tutorials for you to follow.
Fast Australian website hosting
Good website hosting is essential for your site to operate correctly. Each School Site Press website has its own web hosting account with its own resources.
Our LiteSpeed web hosting servers are located in Australia and come with 20GB of NVMe storage, unlimited bandwidth, 4GB memory, 200% CPU limit, hourly backups, malware scans and SSL certificate for encryption of all data passed via the site.
Never have another login issue – ever!
In the past, schools have come to us looking to have a new site created simply because the IT guy left for another job without letting anyone know how to login, how the site was created or where the site is hosted etc.
Sometimes, in these circumstances the only option left is to start over and create a new site! Not good.
With a School Site Press website you will never be locked out of your website again. If your web admin person leaves, simply contact us. After a few verification checks, we’ll have you logged back into your website asap!
