CRANSLEY School is celebrating success in a national website competition.

The independent day school at Great Budworth won the School Website of the Year award in the Independent Schools Association contest.

The competition was open to all 300 schools which are members of the association, and Cransley was one of three finalists competing for the title.

The website was officially launched in January, and was designed by “School Website,” with easier navigation in mind.

Cransley was judged on the effectiveness of the website in terms of accessibility, ease of navigation and overall design.

“We were incredibly proud to receive recognition from the association for our new website,” said Cransley School headmaster Simon Leyshon.

“The hard work that went into the website has paid off with both this award and positive comments from parents.”

Cransley School was founded in the 1930s, and will begin to teach boys aged 11 to 16 from September.
