What do we do?

Witley Jones Furniture design, manufacture and install high quality bespoke school furniture. 

All pieces of furniture are tailored to your exacting requirements, from the type of materials you require and specific colours as well as bespoke shapes and sizes.

Our in-house team works closely with you, your contractors and consultants, providing a total service from start to finish, beginning with a free consultation and design service.

Upon agreeing the final design of a project, we work with you to select materials and produce a schedule in conjunction with the overall project plan. 

All school furniture is manufactured and assembled in our state of the art factories by experienced skilled staff. We have a dedicated installation team that deliver and fit all pieces of furniture onsite alongside our senior management team, who oversee the completion of every project. 

Who are our customers and who do we work with?

We manufacture school furniture for all education establishments across the United Kingdom, Europe and the world. 

We work with both independent and state schools across all areas of their estate to provide them with furniture for their renovation, refurbishment and new building projects.

Our team also works closely with building contractors that we partner with or have been appointed by the school, as well as forging close working relationships with architects that specialise in education projects.

To date we have supplied school furniture to over 400 education establishments. 

Our work with these schools spans multiple projects across each estate, including bespoke boarding house refurbishment programmes and new science laboratories, through to teaching walls and single cupboards. 

The partnership with Epsom College ranges from classroom furniture to teaching walls, common rooms and IT suites. We have recently helped them complete the refurbishment of boarding and day houses with bespoke boarding accommodation furniture. 

At Swanbourne House we have supplied boarding furniture and designed a number of laboratories including Science, Art and DT. 

Priors Field School have commissioned Witley Jones Furniture to provide classroom furniture during refurbishment projects, which have led to us installing science laboratory furniture and furniture for music and food technology rooms. 

At Bromsgrove School in Worcestershire, we have manufactured and installed bespoke boarding accommodation furniture for 8 boarding houses and five day houses, as well as providing bespoke desks, seating and instrument storage for their music department. View Case Studies

What do our customers say about us?

“Witley Jones recently manufactured and installed over 65 bed spaces for Ward’s Boarding House here at Wycliffe. They also provided vanity units for each of the room’s en suites, dining furniture, trophy cabinets, common room furniture and furnished the cleaners/ linen store. 

They met our specific requirements for each of these areas, particularly the level of detail involved with the intricacies in each of the bedrooms; they were flexible and able to adapt to the conditions of the build during their delivery and installation programme, as well as manufacturing everything within the agreed timeframe.

We are delighted with the final outcome and the level of aftercare Witley Jones offer and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for future projects.”

The WJ process

Planning & Design

Our Team work closely with schools, teachers, architects and building contractors to understand the purpose and vision for a room or space. This enables us to provide advice and guidance on the layout, configuration, quantity of pieces of furniture, materials and finishes.

After understanding the intricacies of a project our Design Team produce accurate scale plans and drawings of the room and 3D colour visualisation of each piece of furniture using Cabinet Vision – an exciting CAD program.

We produce a variety of design ideas for a project to discuss with a client in order to ensure achieving the best possible design in line with their ideas and requirements. Working in conjunction with the project team, we will amend and evolve the design and dimensions to ensure the best use of available space.

Where necessary, we will visit a site a number of times during the design and quoting stage to make sure we get every key detail correct before proceeding to manufacture furniture. Our team can produce bespoke samples in order to test and view a piece of furniture in situ to gauge sizes, look and feel.

Material and accessory options

Witley Jones Furniture use a variety of materials for our furniture products including natural veneers, melamine faced MDF and Plywood. 

All of the wood that we purchase is environmentally sound and from sustainable sources.
