By Webanywhere in Website of the Week | Tagged coxhoe school, school website design, school websites

This week’s website is a natural choice. Coxhoe School’s website is famous amongst primary schools across the UK, because it is home to hundreds of teaching resources.

Webanywhere is rather proud of the fact that Coxhoe School chose School Jotter as its website system - and this week, their website was relaunched with a brand new look. Webanywhere was there to document the occasion, and you can read more about this in our blog post here.
