Education furniture at Farnborough College of Technology

Farnborough College of Technology is based in the home town of British aviation, and naturally boasts an exceptional Aerospace & Aeronautical Academy, as well as offering all types of courses from A levels to Apprenticeships, to Honours Degrees and some postgraduate options, in subjects such as Engineering, Hair & Beauty, Catering, Sports Science and many more.

After having seen the array of examples of furniture, fixtures & equipment we’d undertaken in education and health care, and from discussions with contractor Concept FM, who had worked with us in the past, Bond Bryan architects selected us to provide fitted education furniture to several areas within the Aerospace Research & Innovation Centre building. This is part of the brand new Emerging Technology Centre, only opened in the summer of 2019.

  • 215 meters of worktop

Education furniture by David Bailey

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. Our Education range includes wall-mounted and floor-standing units, storage trays and shelving, bookcases and laboratory furniture. 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 £30,000 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

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.


Made in Britain, fitted healthcare furniture

Made in BritainAll the fitted healthcare furniture we supply is manufactured at our factory in Broadstairs, Kent. We provide specialist, HTM 63 and HTM 71 compliant furniture and storage units, specialising in the healthcare and hospital market. We have installed fitted healthcare furniture to many UK hospitals, health centres, clinics and GP surgeries, including Guys & St. Thomas Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, North Middlesex University Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital.
