Hamilton Trust

Creating a flagship website to help teachers find the right resources fast.

The challenge

Hamilton Trust is one of the UK’s leading resources for primary school teachers, providing a huge range of materials and lesson plans to tens of thousands of users.

When the education charity wanted to transform its online presence, we worked together to build a new digital platform that would increase engagement with existing audiences and attract new users too.

Our approach

With more than 10,000 pages of content in place and more to come, structure was everything for Hamilton Trust.

So we introduced extensive National Curriculum plans and made resources easier to find. We used a new platform that allows for future growth. We made it quicker for staff to upload content. And we made the site more responsive too.

We are really pleased with the look of our new website, and look forward to working with White October to continue to develop the experience for our users.

The Hamilton Trust website serves millions of files to teachers around the UK, responsible for the bulk of the charity's revenue, and has been finalist in the BETT awards in 2016 and 2017. For the past 3 years Hamilton Trust have relied on the team at White October and our support desk, to monitor the site's performance and support the organisation as it grows.
