Classroom Seating Options


Sep 26 2016
Classroom Seating Options

High quality classroom seating may be an oversight for many schools, but believe it or not good seating can help improve children’s learning experience. Chairs that are uncomfortable can have a negative effect on children’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand.

We believe that ergonomically designed seating that is the correct size for the age group you are teaching, will improve children’s performance at school, as well as their overall health, as they are more likely to sit with the correct posture throughout the day.

We offer a range of different chair shapes and sizes that are ideal for different classrooms and age groups throughout your school. For example, the WSM Classroom stool is perfectly suited to science classrooms, whilst the NP Swivel chair is great for computer rooms.

In Stock Options

Within our range of classroom chairs, four are available in stock for fast delivery throughout mainland UK – The ST Classroom Chair, NP School Chair, WSM Classroom Stool and the WSM Skidbase Classroom Stool. These in stock options are available on a 7-10 day lead time.

Other chairs in the classroom chair range are manufactured to order and dispatched within 4 weeks.

High quality and durable

All of our classroom chairs feature an extra strong undercarriage which provides strength and durability to our seating. The chairs are designed specifically without nuts and screws and are therefore able to withstand daily use in busy classrooms without any parts coming loose or falling off.

Range of Colours Available

We believe that colour is important when designing your classroom. Different colours affect learning in different ways, for example the colour red encourages creativity, increases appetite and increases alertness and excitement. See our article on how colour affects learning for more information.

Our chairs will add a splash of colour to any classroom environment, with 10 vibrant colour options to choose from, including blue, charcoal, green, lilac, orange, purple, red, soft blue, tangy green and yellow. You’re sure to find a colour that matches your classroom aesthetic perfectly.

Range of Sizes Available

Getting chairs that are the right height for the children you are teaching is vital for ensuring they are comfortable throughout the day. If children become uncomfortable then their attention can start to drift and their learning can be negatively affected.

The heights available for most of our chairs include:

  • 260mm (3-4 years old)
  • 310mm (4-6 years old)
  • 350mm (6-8 years old)
  • 380mm (8-11 years old)
  • 430mm (11-14 years old)
  • 460mm (14+ years old)

These sizes make our chairs ideal for children from pre-school up to secondary school.

Storage

Our range of classroom chairs and stools are stackable between 6 and 10 high, depending on the chair. This is an ideal feature for schools that don’t have much space available as they can be stacked and stored away easily when not in use.

The ST classroom chair is our best-selling chair. They are ergonomically designed to help children sit with the correct posture throughout their school day which in turn also helps them to concentrate better.
