School Chairs for All Ages
Most of our school seating is organised using sizes. Each size acts as a guide for which age children they should be used for. Here is a handy little size guide to help you decide which classroom chairs are best suited for you.
Preschool Chairs – Size 1 (3 - 4 Years-Old)
We offer a huge range of preschool chairs which are tested and fully complaint with BS EN1729 Parts 1 & 2. A good example is the Titan range. Available in Blue, Green, Red & Yellow.
Nursery School Chairs – Size 2 (4 - 6 Years-Old)
A nursery school chair is one that needs to keep an energetic young child comfortable enough to want to sit there for extended periods of time. Our Size 2’s are available from a range of brands in many different colours and different types. One example would be the KI Postura+. This exciting brand is one our most popular sellers and you can see why. Ultimate comfort and over 10 colours to choose from.
Primary School Chairs
Our primary school chairs are split into two categories, infants & juniors.
Infants – Size 3 (6 - 8 Years-Old)
Size 3 infant chairs come in many different styles. Whether a one piece, a four-leg or stacking chairs that are used in assembly’s, we keep them all in stock. Check out the Hille Affinity Stacking model, it is available in Red, Green and Blue. These are great for being able to stack in the corner when you need more space.
Juniors – Size 4 (8 - 11 Years-Old)
Size 4 is another important size as children really start to develop at this age in terms of growth. Having a little bit more space when sitting allows a child to focus on their work rather than how comfortable their seat may or may not be. An excellent choice here would be Titan Skid Base model. No more rocking back, sliding, or avoidable accidents.
Secondary Student Chairs
Again, this age group is broken up into two separate sizes, size 5 & size 6.
Size 5 (11 - 14 Years-Old)
We all know that our children start getting a little twitchy at this age. The start of a new chapter, lots of interesting new things and lots of distractions. One extra thing they do not need to be thinking about is their new secondary school chairs. Our range in this size extends across multiple brands, types, colours, and materials. You sure to find the right seating for your secondary school. One of our standout models in this age group is the Titan Ultimate Classroom Stool. Perfect for science blocks, canteens and art rooms.
Size 6 (14+)
Our final size, this one is for those children at the glorious age of 14 and over. With so many different children in one school, all going through so many changes at one time, this age group needs school seating that is not only comfortable, but also versatile. This size needs to be able to adapt and be able to take different people who are different shapes and sizes. A good choice here would be Metalliform’s range. Available in 10 different colours, these are versatile and durable, perfect for this age group.
Our range of seating comes in a variety of materials such as wood, plastic, and fabric. Depending on what you are using them for will depend on what type of material you need. For example, in a reception area, library or staff area, you may want softer fabric ones whereas in a canteen, you may want wooden seats as they are easy to wipe down and stack away.
Plastic School Chairs
Many of our seats are available in plastic such as our one-piece range. Some of our plastic chairs are made of both plastic and metal such as the four leg and skid base range. Most of these models are made up of a high-grade polypropylene all of which are fully tested and complaint.
Wooden School Chairs
As mentioned earlier, these are great for canteens as they are so easy to clean. Many of them are stackable so they can be out away which also makes them good for exams. Generally available as four leg models, these come in a variety of finishes such as beech.
We know that seating, and classroom furniture in general, is often the last purchase when furnishing a classroom. For this reason, we have ensured that our collection can be customised in size and colour, matching the vibrancy of any age group. Many or our models can be matched to school desks and school storage.
Poor posture can severely affect the well-being and growth of children. The correct posture can benefit active learning and a child’s attitude toward education. Over the past few years, workplaces have addressed and improved their seating solutions to give their staff comfortable seating which in turn has shown to increase productivity. Schools have quickly followed suit which has led to some great new products on the market. Many models are now contoured to promote the correct posture. A shape which is retained over years of use because of their core material strength.
