Collaborative learning environment

Bespoke classroom furniture helps to facilitate a collaborative learning environment using bright colours and a variety of desk shapes allows schools to easily change the layout of a classroom.

Classroom storage can be designed to integrate classroom technology including interactive whiteboards creating discrete housing which maximises both teaching and storage space.

Versatile furniture makes it easier when a broad range of subjects are taught in a classroom. Teachers can make simple changes to the layout of the furniture to accommodate class sizes and create room that is fit for purpose.

Having the ability to move furniture helps create an individual learning environment. A more traditional classroom layout, using rows of tables, may be favoured or alternatively, a more collaborative approach by grouping tables together.

Considering storage around the classroom helps you intelligently utilise the space you have available to store resources, equipment and students’ personal possessions.

We help you to understand the most appropriate pieces of storage furniture for your classroom through Teaching Walls, Storage Walls, cupboards, lockers and drawers.

Colours and Finishes

Introducing colour creates a brighter and a more engaging learning environment for students.

Through our in-house paint shop, you can specify the colour of your furniture to be in line with the colours of the school, house or subject.

Your choice of colours can also help you to create a modern and smart look across your classrooms. It is important that you consider practicality when choosing colours.

Maximising Space

The increase in class sizes is creating several issues for schools of all sizes, both in the private and state sector, with a major issue being a lack of space which can have a detrimental effect on students and teaching staff.

Intelligent furniture takes the intended space and the purpose of that space into consideration, to design bespoke pieces that meet the needs of the space perfectly.

Maximising space is also a key feature of intelligent furniture. Off-the-shelf furniture simply doesn’t fit each and every room perfectly, making it restrictive and often resulting in a loss of valuable space.

When classroom furniture has been designed with the space in mind, it ensures you maximise the available space and helps schools to accommodate all class sizes.

Multi-functional furniture enables you to use a classroom for a wide variety of lessons and activities, helping schools to get the most out of their investment.

Deciding your Classroom Layout

Classroom design and layout plays a crucial role in a student’s education.

If you are in the process of building or refurbishing your classroom spaces, there are lots of factors that need to be considered, to ensure the space is both fun and functional.

This will help you to determine the number of desks and other furniture you need for the space. You can then begin creating a plan of how the layout will look in your mind.

To help you with understanding how to optimise you classroom layout, we offer a free of charge no obligation space planning and design consultation.

Durability and ROI

It is vital that the furniture you design and select is fit for purpose and ensures you get the most out of your budget.

Classroom furniture should be seen as a long term investment with quality and durability at the top of your priority list.

Although we believe that following trends is good to help you keep up with 21st century learning, we feel that quality should be at forefront.

We have a proven track record of manufacturing furniture that can handle the rigours of each learning environment and offer a five year fair wear and tear guarantee.

Classroom Ergonomics

The ‘one size fits all’ approach to school furniture, particularly seating, is no longer effective.

Furniture must fit the children, allow movement, provide correct and a good level of back support and encourage good posture.

Children may become restless and uncomfortable, resulting in a decreased attention span and reduce their learning potential if they are spending prolonged periods of time sat at desks that are either too small or too big.

In some instances, we have worked with schools to design adjustable desks and chairs so that each piece of furniture could be used by all school years.

Classroom Safety

Safety should be a key factor when selecting the materials for your furniture.

At Witley Jones, we advise your school on the best materials to ensure the end product is compliant with health and safety and fire safety regulations.

  • What is your teaching style? How do you want to teach in the space?
  • What type of lessons will be taught in the space?

Can you help us with designing our layout?

Once you know the type and amount of furniture that will be used in the space, you can put the planned layout into motion and see how it looks and if it works in real life.

the most important thing to remember when deciding on your classroom layout is what’s best for you and your students. A successful classroom layout will make the best use of the available space and reflect your teaching style as well as the learning styles of your students, resulting in better engagement and attainment.

It is also important to remember that you can keep trying out different floor plans and if you feel the current layout isn’t working, change things around and try something different.
