Strood Academy, Medway, Branding & School Website Design | Rye Design


Strood Academy is a school in Medway, Kent. It was newly established to provide secondary education for 1500 students, and once ground had been broken on new buildings the school looked to develop a new visual identity and strong brand style.


Working closely with the Senior Leadership Team and Academy sponsor, the University of the Creative Arts, Rye Design worked on the creative for a new brand for the school that would have a contemporary, 'grown-up' identity and position the school in the local community.


The favoured badge for Strood Academy was a fluid hand-drawn 'S' representing the River Medway on which Strood sits. The dark blue and contrasting cyan palette help give the identity a business-like quality and the school a unique brand on which to develop its presence.

A strong identity

The new unique brand style for Strood Academy establishes a strong identity for the school which works across all media.

Student focus groups

The Strood Academy hand-drawn 'S' is a reference to the River Medway and was favoured by the school's student focus groups.

Strood Academy School Website Design

School website design

The new school website design for Strood Academy was built to be integrated with social media to showcase daily life at this busy school.

Staff at the school quicky recognised the positivity and increased pride amongst students and the wider community when publishing regular news and achievements.

Not only were weekly visitors to the website now over 350, but Strood Academy was also leading the conversation on social media.
