Noticeboards are a really handy way of displaying numerous things around a school building, both inside and outside, including things such as upcoming events, exam venues and even outstanding pieces of student work!
Making sure that you choose the noticeboard which is right for your school and its needs is crucial, so it’s important to make sure that you consider all of your requirements before making a purchase.
We’ve put together some of our top tips when it comes to purchasing a school noticeboard to help give you that little bit of a helping hand.
First things first, it’s important that your noticeboard fits in with the general aesthetic and style of the school building.
For example, for a primary school, you might wish to opt for a noticeboard with some fun, bright colours, such as those in our BrightBoards range, in colours such as Jaffa, Zest and Flamingo.
However, in a secondary school, especially in older ones with lots of history and tradition, you might wish to go for something a little more understated in colour, but with a more natural look, such as our wood effect outdoor noticeboards?
Another good idea is to make sure the colour of your noticeboards match the overall branding and logo/uniform of the school to make everything feel that little bit more professional.
Every school has its troublemakers, so you can be sure that if you leave your noticeboards unsecured, you’ll quickly find things going missing and perhaps even being replaced with various things which shouldn’t be there!
For this reason, it’s important that you make sure to invest in a whiteboard which can be safely locked.

We also have noticeboards which are fire resistant in accordance with all of the relevant legislation regarding public building fire safety.
Bespoke Outdoor Noticeboards
If you’re looking for a big outdoor noticeboard which really shows off your school to students, parents and passers-by, why not look into a bespoke noticeboard with your school name and logo engraved or printed in the header?
This gives your noticeboard a bit more of a personal touch and is great for the branding of your school.
However, when purchasing an outdoor noticeboard, it’s important that you consider how well it’s going to stand up to the brutal British weather.

While school furniture can be expensive, we believe that it’s important that you invest in quality.
We think that it’s important that you buy a noticeboard which is going to last, otherwise you’ll just find yourself spending more on a new one sooner rather than later.
So, while we do offer a fantastic range of cheaper noticeboards which offer great value for money, you may be better off opting for a slightly better quality option and saving money in the long run, especially when you consider that these noticeboards are going to have to stand up to the rigours of many hectic school days!
