S&H Schoolwear and Sports Website

S& H Schoolwear and Sports Website

A comprehensive, product-based website for local school uniform suppliers S&H Schoolwear and Sports, who have a Bromsgrove-based school uniform shop.

The website has been developed in WordPress, using elements of the functionality provided by WooCommerce, to display and organise the school uniform garments in categories to represent the educational stages, and subcategories to represent the individual schools.   Each school uniform garment has its own page, with a photo of the garment including the school badge (where applicable), details of sizes, prices, manufacturer information such as materials used, key features, and care instructions.

At the onset of the project, one of the key requirements from the S&H Schoolwear business owners was to include the school badge on individual school uniform photos.  They believed this would better represent the products they were selling and it would help their customers visualise the garments more clearly.  We were able to deliver this by individually photoshopping the badges onto the school uniform photos.  All images in use on the website were then watermarked to protect them, and to keep them exclusive to S&H Schoolwear and Sports.

Whilst the website is not required to allow online purchases,  it is possible for this functionality to be added at any point in the future if required.  School uniform is available to try on and ‘put by’ or purchase from the S&H Schoolwear and Sports shop on Church Street in Bromsgrove town centre.

The website is mobile-friendly/responsive which means it navigates well and is easy to use on mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers, and laptops.  There are multiple navigation options including a horizontal navigation menu with drop downs, categorised lists for each of the educational stages e.g. first schools, middle schools, and high schools, with further text links to each dedicated school page.  School pages display all uniform items available for that school.  Links exist in the website footer and there is also a search facility located in the website header if you are searching for a specific item.

S&H Schoolwear and Sports business owners are able to add, edit or delete school uniform pages, although Pedleyonline is more than happy to help make these updates upon request.

Customer service is very important to business owners of this family-run business and they have collected a large number of very positive customer reviews on their Facebook page and in-store.  These have been included on the website on the Customer Reviews page.

As well as school uniforms, S&H Schoolwear and Sports also sell Guide Wear including Rainbows, Brownies, and Guides uniforms.  They sell sports accessories.  They also have a garment printing and embroidery service ideal for workwear, sports teams, and DofE Hoodies.  All of these products are represented and organised in the same way as the school uniform items.The website has a number of additional pages relating to services provided in-store, such as the ‘Put By Service’, ‘Pre-loved Uniform’, and ‘Autism Friendly Shopping Appointments’

A blog has been added to the website to allow S&H to add news updates and articles relevant to their business and to communicate information to their customers, for example, extended opening hours, school uniform lead times, new services available, new schools they will be supplying uniforms for.  They also have a Facebook page which is used to engage with customers and this is linked to their website, and vice versa.

The homepage has contact information, shop address, and opening hours and contact information is also on the Contact Us page.

The website uses the S&H Schoolwear and Sports business logo with branding and themes and colours consistent with the branding in use on the shop front.  The website also features images of the shop itself.

The About Us is well written, personal, and welcoming and talks about the business, its background, the business owners, and their business ideals and approach.  It also introduces the additional services available in the shop, such as the ‘Put By Service’.

Pedleyonline provides managed SSL Web Hosting for the S&H Schoolwear and Sports Website.  We also continue to support S&H to develop its website further to meet the needs of its customers and of its business.   They are an absolute pleasure to work with.
