Lancaster-based brand and digital design studio Factored has won the contract to deliver a new website and further marketing materials for Ripley St Thomas school after a four-way pitch.

Ripley St Thomas, a comprehensive Church of England Academy in Lancaster, invited four North West creative agencies to pitch for a new website. Factored proposed a new bespoke website design, integrated with offline marketing and an 'evolved brand'.

Following the award of the contract, Factored was also asked to include a virtual open evening, prospectus production and nine films, which are being produced with Lancaster-based McGill Productions.

The webite is expected to be completed in September 2020 and represents Factored’s second website for The Bay Learning Trust, following Morecambe Bay Academy in May 2019.

Managing Director Tom Grattan said: “Recognised as a leading school nationally, Ripley has a long tradition of academic excellence and value-added performance. 

“Our aim for the website, and all the further marketing materials, is to convey the school’s conviction that education should address the whole of what it means to be a happy, fulfilled and successful adult, which is reflected in the high levels of success achieved by many of its alumni.”
