Designing the website for the Burston Strike School, liaising with their internal team to produce a clean site, for desktop and mobile, all done in WordPress in a modified bootstrap style, Bootstrap was chosen as it’s the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile projects on the web, and WordPress for them to update their own site.

Burston Strike School
The longest strike in history was not staged by miners but by minors – the children of a small village in Norfolk. On 1 April 1914, pupils of the Burston village school, supported by their parents, took to the streets in protest at the dismissal of their teachers, Tom, and Kitty Higdon. The strike lasted for over 25 years.
