About this project
We have manufactured and installed education furniture at Claycots Primary School in Slough, which was looking to refurbish communal areas for years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and needed a manufacturer which could meet its high standards.
We manufactured education furniture for the following areas:
- Storage units
- Communal areas for years 3-6
- Cream doors & mocha worktop colour scheme
- Storage trays in bright green, blue, red & yellow
Education furniture at Claycots Primary School
It is no mean feat to incorporate a school’s philosophy of creating a relaxed, happy and purposeful atmosphere that facilitates achievement into its fitted school furniture design. But when Claycots Primary School presented its brief to David Bailey Furniture Systems, the fitted furniture manufacturer was confident it could rise to the challenge.
Claycots Primary School is a successful and popular infant and junior school located in western Slough with approximately 730 pupils. The school was looking to refurbish communal areas for years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and needed a fitted furniture manufacturer and installer who could meet its high standards.
The school has a vision that ‘All children have an entitlement to the best education that we can provide’ and as a result it has high expectations when it comes to outsourcing suppliers. In addition, the fitted school furniture had to compliment the modern and spacious school building.
Cream & mocha colour scheme
With the choice of 20 different colours as standard, David Bailey Furniture Systems’ Education range of fitted school furniture enables you to find a match for your school’s needs. Claycots Primary School, with recommendation from David Bailey Furniture Systems, selected school storage units with cream doors and mocha coloured worktops to contrast the bright red window frames. The school storage trays in vibrant green, blue, red and yellow stood out against the clean lines and colours of the cupboard doors and worktops.

Our Education range of fitted furniture is regularly specified for education establishments throughout the UK, including primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and special educational needs (SEN) schools. Available in 20 different colours as standard, we can install your education furniture, or deliver ready for you to fit.

We also offer a variety of safe and durable fixtures, fittings and specialist joinery to meet your specific needs. You can view our range of education furniture on our website.
Education furniture installations
Our specialist education furniture is installed in many schools, colleges and further education facilities. We have recently been selected by main contractor E W Beard to manufacture furniture for Headington Girls School in Oxford, in a £65,000 contract. This will be for 45 units and 100 metres of worktop in 11 classrooms. The work will start in November 2020. Other education customers include:
- Yateley Community School, Hampshire
- Channing School, London
- University of Wales
- Clore Shalom School, Hertfordshire
Architects and Contractors rely on us because they know we are well established and professional and our durable furniture is manufactured in Britain with craftsmanship and professionalism. We also install our own furniture into a facility, so there is no need to ensure a contractor has installation instructions.
School rebuilding programme
Update July 2020: We welcome the recent pledge by the prime minister, Boris Johnson, to provide a £1bn schools rebuilding programme over a 10-year investment plan for upgrades and refurbishments. This is the first major schools rebuilding programme since 2014 and will make sure our schools and colleges are fit for the future. It is part of the prime minister’s plan to provide a world-class education for children and to help the economy bounce back from this year’s coronavirus crisis.
