Searching for creative school signage ideas? Walk this way…

These school signage ideas are creative, affordable and designed to make an impact.

Wayfinding with a difference

These school signage ideas prove that signage need not be dull and purely functional.

Instead, your school signs can be beautiful and creative. You can also incorporate them into wider visual design projects to maximise your budget.

This way, please

Directional arrows can guide pupils towards the right departments at the right time. Combine them with images related to the department to inspire pupils and get them in the right mindset for learning.

Or include inspirational quotes about particular subjects or fields of interest to prompt discussion and promote curiosity in pupils.


A splash of colour

Colour coding areas is a fresh and fun alternative to traditional wayfinding signage.

You can even include identifying icons that can be used around your school alongside your colour coded areas. This is particularly useful for SEND pupils or younger children who struggle to read formal signage.

As well as aiding wayfinding, colour coding and icons will add a personal touch to your learning environment and create a sense of belonging for all pupils.

Get creative

Use your school signs to enthuse and engage pupils in all areas of interest, not just your core subjects.

For example, the image below presents the theatre at Ash Manor School. We designed a theatre style backdrop for the area, with show posters, engaging images and memorable quotes.

This is a fantastic way to immerse pupils in the world of drama and encourage self expression.

By the time they arrive at rehearsals, pupils will be energised and ready for lights, camera, action!
