There are different nuances within the terms public, private and independent school, yet they all represent the rich heritage of educational excellence the UK offers.
A variety of cultural aspirations, vision, a wish to be outstanding, which those working with you should match. They need to be able to understand your unique needs, listen to you and offer in depth advice when helpful.
Furniture for a school is more than a collection of objects. High quality at a rational cost matters but enhancing education is the key.
A Complete Service
Furnishing the private school sector calls for more than a catalogue service. Your supplier should be a knowledgeable purchasing partner, offering access to and helping negotiate with a wide range of suppliers.
Strategic support should be part of client service, through a consultancy approach which helps with broad planning and small detail.
When decisions are made, we often manage the project. Our national installation team ensure furniture is neatly in place, a project manager can oversee the same for flooring, lighting, IT and any unique requirements.
Furniture Meeting Need
The classroom chairs shown above are one of many styles available, an example of a little extra without much additional cost. Durable yet aesthetically pleasing, quiet and easy to move, or rearrange as class demands change.
Our principle of understanding and meeting specific needs can apply to libraries, cafeterias, reception areas. Also to detail, from storage units, to bookcases, screens, cabling, or the surfaces people touch.
Bespoke design can be helpful at times, for a unique building, or unique pupils. Extra care can often be a benefit in boarding facilities, to create spaces which work but are also the home they should be.
Staff & Admin Offices
Good staff deserve attractive places to work, get together, prepare to share the knowledge independent schools thrive on. Meeting their requirements is an important part of success.
Our designers take time to hear staff viewpoints, appreciate individual demands and nuances. From personal storage needs, to IT locations, to the freedom to choose quiet, or social space.
We apply the same thoughtfulness to every member of your school and to visitors. All will reflect on the atmosphere and be influenced by this, if they are comfortable, education is well served.
Whether you require a single teaching area to be refurnised, a complete school, or accommodation wing, the same ethos applies. Private sector schooling deserves good partners, if we can help, please get in touch.
