We bought into School Spider in about June last year as we were unhappy with our previous provider. Staff were spending ages uploading information and constantly struggled to find out how to complete tasks. I researched a wide range of companies and had numerous visit from reps, in the end we went with School Spider and haven't looked back! The School Spider team met with myself and my ICT coordinator and took down all the features we wanted for our site. If you have a problem they are back to you within the day. I have no regrets - School Spider is also cheaper than other providers.

We wanted a bespoke website that fit perfectly the needs of our unique school that was also very cost effective. Having looked at many companies School Spider were the only company that were prepared to work with us and develop what we actually wanted. Even if it meant reinventing the wheel. I think we were particularly awkward and demanding but School Spider managed to accommodate all our requests. The follow on support has been second to none. All teachers feel comfortable about adding information to the site which means to is constantly kept-up-to-date. Our community like the level of information the website offers and we have had many positive comments from colleagues at other things
