About sponsor-ed

Serving Schools for Thirteen Years
The sponsor-ed Group is Australia's premier developer of school websites. Hundreds of schools have a sponsor-ed website and we support more than 2,500 web administrators. The websites are so easy to use because they have been refined based on user feedback over 13 years. We’ve upgraded our websites 8 times and are now planning our 9th. Technology doesn’t stand still and neither do we. 

Whether your web needs are for marketing, community communications or a combination of the two, a sponsor-ed website can help you achieve your goals.

So Easy to Use

Schools come to us because our websites are easy to use, are well supported and present schools in the way they wish to be seen by their community and prospective parents. Our websites have been built with a time-poor and low-tech publisher in mind, so they're easy to use. All the technology has been hidden from view; all you see are the same functions as a Word document with a few 'webbie' things added. 

All we do is school websites and we’re very good at it.

Our Websites Look Fabulous

We have 6 new designs with something for every taste. All themes have been built on the same easy to use administration system. You can see them here. And all with so many options to customise your own look.


Our websites are mobile friendly. This means that when a mobile phone tries to access your website, the website reformats the look of the page making it readable on the mobile's small screen. Genius! It's the most contemporary form of web development and with over 50% of all web visits now coming from mobiles, it's a very necessary addition to your communications line up. 

SSL Security 
Sponsor-ed websites come with SSL Certifcates for added security. You can read about SSL here.
