What Our Clients Say About Us

We are thrilled with the custom vinyl artwork designed and produced by Hive. The vibrant and engaging visuals beautifully capture our primary school’s curriculum themes, including history, geography, and space exploration.

Hive were easy to collaborate with, receptive to our feedback, and delivered everything on time. Our children and staff have been inspired by the artwork, which not only enhances the learning environment but also sparks curiosity and imagination.

Alex Newsome, The Grammar School at Leeds

I have worked closely with Hive for many years and have always been delighted with the work they have produced. They took the time to really understand the aims and ethos of our Thrive and were able to produce visuals and branding which helped strengthen our message throughout the Trust and beyond. The team at Hive have developed an excellent knowledge of our Trust and intrinsically know which designs will work best for us. We have built a strong relationship with Hive and we look forward to working with them on new projects in the future.

John Barrett, CEO, Thrive CE Academy Trust

Great, professional service. We are thrilled with the art work we have had installed in our school. The service was high quality from initial discussions and design drafts to the finished product and installments. Would definitely use Hive again next time we want some wall graphics done. Thank you!

Kat Thornburn – Dowson Primary Academy

Our school hall looks stunning as a result of an excellent service from Hive. We now have a 360 degree learning resource on our walls for all children. The entire process was professional, bespoke and timely. The finished product is superb as a result of clear consultation, an exceptional product and skilled, careful installation. I would thoroughly recommend Hive.

Smithy Bridge Primary School

I have used Hive for my current school’s website because of previous highly successful experience with Hive at my previous school. The team are brilliant at interpreting a brief, designing and building a bespoke website and their customer support is excellent.

In particular, the team were great at understanding exactly what we wanted and bringing it to life. Hive are also very good at suggesting things that make sense logistically and for structuring in a way that just works. We have had loads of positive feedback on our website and I could not recommend Hive highly enough!

Adam Hossen – Head Teacher, Hazel Grove Primary Scool

I’ve worked with the team at Hive for several years. In my own role, the quality of the working relationships you develop is hugely important in creating successful outcomes and the investment made by Hive in this area has been fundamental to the projects we have collaborated on. Our working relationship has been excellent.

They have at all times been professional and supportive but have also been prepared to challenge us where this has been necessary; this has been key for the work we have done together and genuinely valued. They are very experienced in their roles and, importantly, are very willing to share their expertise, and their time, in supporting clients. I would be more than happy to recommend Hive as a company to work with.

Damian Hornsby – Admissions and Marketing Manager, Holy Cross College

I have worked with the Team at Hive for four years now, and every project has been beautifully designed, delivered on time and within a very realistic budget. As each project was developed, the design team really understood our needs, and communicated ideas and gave suggestions clearly and frequently.
Our latest project was a total re-working of our website; the end result is stunning. The design is bright, fresh, modern and clear. It is easy to navigate and – equally important – easy to edit and upload onto. Hive were at the end of the phone throughout the design process, and sent draft pages regularly. They took on board my requests for changes, whilst giving excellent advice along the way – Hive really knows what ‘works’ when it comes to website design.
I would highly recommend Hive for web design – and any other design project you may have. You will certainly be impressed.

New Islington Free School

Hive worked with us to create the identity for our trust and redesigned our trust and school websites. The team understood the complex brief perfectly, and designed trust-wide branding, which still allowed the individuality of each of our schools to shine through. Hive’s
combination of creativity and practicality mean that we now have a strong, recognisable image which has changed the way we present ourselves to our stakeholders and the wider community. It was a pleasure to work with the team at Hive, who were always easy to contact and who engaged fully and enthusiastically in discussions about our projects.

Oak Learning Partnership

OMG!!!  I love love love the wall graphics!
It looks amazing and has gone down a storm with both staff and pupils.
We couldn’t get the pupils to work for the first period, they all wanted to look at it!
I am so glad we chose your company to commission the work for us, you have been so efficient and easy to work with.

Bishop Bridgeman CE Primary School

We’ve had a ‘vision’ of a huge blossom-filled cherry tree in our entrance area for some time now and when we see it all its glory, it really feels like a turning point in the school’s history.

It’s truly beautiful we love showing it off! Both walls look incredible and have brought the corridor ‘to life’!

We can’t thank you enough for all the work you have all put in into creating such a personalised design for us.

Cherry Tree Hill Primary School

I LOVE IT. The kids will love it too and there are so many subliminal messages in there that they will see every day without even realising. The difference it will make to the way the school looks and feels will have a huge impact on the way the staff feel and act too.

And a spontaneous outburst from one of our TAs: “WOW!!”

Bradley Green Primary Academy

Hive provide an efficient and high quality service. No job seems too difficult and the team are always on hand to answer questions that we have. The quality of the work is always of a high standard and we are involved at every stage to ensure that the work done is exactly what we ask for. Staff listen carefully to what we need and produce a range of options to choose from.

We have recommended Hive to other schools as a result.

St Philip’s CE Primary School

Working with the team at Hive is always a delight. They are uniquely talented and seem to know exactly what we’re thinking and create bespoke designs of the highest quality. Their professionalism means that that the entire process, from design to completion, runs smoothly and efficiently, keeping to timescales and budgets. The installations that they have completed for us have transformed our school environment and we’re already planning our next project!

Oakfield Primary School

I have worked with the team at Hive for over two years now on different projects. Their superb bespoke creative designs, always carefully following the design brief, have transformed a drab, uninspiring and utilitarian environment into exciting, colourful and truly beautiful spaces appreciated by the whole school community.

New Islington Free School

Thank you very much.

The children were in awe when they saw it. It has a real wow factor. The staff love it too!

I am so pleased with the final result.

Denton West End Primary

We asked Ed and his team to update some areas of our school with bespoke art work. They listened carefully to our ideas and turned them into the most amazing designs that encompass who we are, whilst enabling the art work to be used to enhance the children’s learning. Both staff and children love the art work!

Eastfield Primary Academy

Hive have worked alongside school leaders and children to transform our school. Our brief was to help create a space to be proud of that promoted a love of learning and our school values. The results are stunning. Hive were incredibly professional throughout the project, caring about every last detail. Thank you.

Moorside Primary Academy

We are absolutely delighted with the website, new logo, school prospectus and signage that Hive helped us produce. They worked with us extremely closely on every detail and at every stage of the process to help us achieve what we were looking for as a school. The team listened to us very carefully and produced a variety of options that reflected what we were looking for in a website, school logo and school prospectus. I can’t recommend Hive enough to any school currently thinking about updating either their website or school prospectus.

Grosvenor Road Primary School

Hive produced an excellent promotional video for us with the minimum of fuss. They were quick to turn the brief into a quality product that delivered our key messages. A professional team who we are happy to recommend.

River View Primary School

Thank you so much for the speedy response in getting the brochures to us – they look amazing!
Thanks for all your support this year – we are thrilled with everything that you have put together for us.

St Philip’s CE Primary School

Once I’d made the decision to refresh the school logo and branding I needed to work with an agency that was creative, that listened and understood where we were, that’s why I chose Hive. They have done and continue to do fantastic work with both schools – it’s a partnership.

Christ Church & Lewis Street Primary Schools

The Hive team were very responsive and positive about our ideas. They provided us with opinions to ensure that the website would support our vision. They listened to our views, providing us with workable ideas and a clear outline for how the website could work and function.

Having an open dialogue and a shared vision meant that we had a very positive working relationship with Hive and we achieved a high quality outcome with a website that meets all our requirements and is easy to navigate around. The visitors to our website are very impressed with how it looks and parents, children and other members of the community have already begun posting their suggestions and comments on our interactive noticeboards.

It has been a pleasure working with Hive who have produced a professional website which has a high quality finish and is straight-forward for us to manage. We also know that we can always contact them if we need advice or additional support to keep the website up-to-date and with the same high quality outcome that has been established so far.

Thank you to the Hive team for all their hard work and for making our vision a reality.

River View Primary School

The team at Hive have been fantastic from start to finish. They are professional to a fault and work in a very organised, timely and efficient manner. From the initial meeting where ideas were gathered to the creation of the site, including taking very professional looking photographs. They have catered to our needs and been very patient with our requirements. The results are fantastic along with the ongoing support.

Oakwood Academy

Buile Hill Visual Arts College was looking to refresh its image and website technology, Hive were extremely skilful and helpful. An important factor was the flexible way Hive worked with the College with regard to deadlines and availability to bring the project to a successful close without unnecessary demands on school time!

Buile Hill Visual Arts College

I have dealt with Hive since 2009, during which time they have provided my school with excellent support in the areas of website design, branding and photography. I can confidently recommend Hive as experts in their field and would thoroughly recommend them.

Willow Tree Primary School

A very personal bespoke service with a really quick response time to the queries and ideas we had.

St Gabriel’s Roman Catholic High School

Our website is BRILLIANT!!!!

There has been an amazing response from everybody who has used it and I haven’t lost any opportunity to tell people who designed and built….credit where it’s due.

Christ the King RC Primary School

The work done by Hive before the opening of our new two form entry primary school has been a major factor in our success. Creating a process by which all stake holders were involved in the naming and branding of our new school has meant that three different school communities have been successfully brought together.

Hive showed great creativity and understanding and at all times listened to what we wanted. This combined with great service and value for money has been central to us returning for further work such as leaflet and prospectus design.

Willow Tree Primary School

I would just like to say a massive thank-you for all you have done to develop the new Holy Cross website. It is getting very positive reviews. Thank you for your patience, hard work and efficiency.
