REAch2 Academy Trust is a primary-only academy trust, the largest of its kind in the country, currently supporting 53 schools across England.

Having seen the work Smarter Reach undertook for their sister trust, Reach4 Academy Trust, we were asked to produce a new website and new logo for REAch2. They were keen to maintain the “feel” of their old logo (and also so as not to necessitate expensive changes of signage throughout the trust schools) but wanted to refresh it to bring it up to speed with current expectations.


The website needed to be intuitive, responsive and functional whilst delivering detailed information about the Trust, statutory information, policies, news, media clips and vacancies. Our talented team managed to deliver all of this with some great user friendly features, outlined below:-

In The Media

On this page, users find a showcase of stories from Trust’s academies, news about the trust itself and other relevant headlines.

Vacancies directory

Vacancies across the various Trust’s schools are listed here with a search page allowing the user to search by location, job type, keyword or simply by browsing the list. This generates a much wider audience for the schools than they can get from their own website. Job hunters may also sign up to a vacancies bulletin, which is sent automatically by email every week.

Another great feature is the Schools Directory, with links to information about every REAch2 academy and an interactive google map embedded into the site.

We encourage you to have a look. If you like what you see, please get in touch to find out more about how we can help you.
