MEET THE SCHUDIO TEAM

Our job is to make it as easy as possible for your school or college to have a beautiful, up to date website. The school website design service we provide guarantees your new website will work on every device and we make sure that your school website requirements are met in full. What's more, we offer everything you need to engage your school community like never before. Forget about App, Website and Marketing from separate providers. Take control of everything in one trustworthy, reliable place.

We're driven by a passion to serve schools well and not charge the earth. The reason we do what we do is to make it possible for us to help support our projects in Uganda. We don't support these projects as an act of corporate responsibility. It is why we exist.

Ian Richardson

Ian is responsible for the day to day running of the business and is incredibly passionate about serving schools well. Everything we do, every team member, every project we support must all fit in with our values. Ian oversees every part of our strategic approach to these vital parts of our business.

Every week Ian checks a number of our clients website and offers guidance and support to help schools succeed and it is one of his favourite things to do when in work. When not working, Ian loves to spend time with his family and exploring the great outdoors. Ian also sits on the board of our key charitable partner, Mission Direct.

Roman Sidorkin

Roman "Brammo" Sidorkin is our lead developer and has been with Schudio since the very beginning. He is a hugely talented developer, continually driving the products forward.

When Brammo isn't speaking 'code', he keeps us praying he doesn't fall off one of the very many, very big mountains he climbs on a regular basis. He is husband to Anna and is a doting father to his two daughters.

Debs Macaulay

Debs looks after our administrative and financial support and keeps the day to day aspects of the business operating smoothly.

When she's not baking fabulous muffins she's busy making sure we don't use too much plastic and that we meet our recycling quotas. When she's at home she looks after her husband and four daughters.

Anna Sidorkina
