What is Wall Art for Schools? It’s beautiful, bespoke artwork that can transform your school’s learning environment.

In our experience, Wall Art for schools works best when it solves a particular need or achieves an objective that’s unique to your school. Perhaps you’re keen to help pupils achieve their aspirations; academically, socially, emotionally, developmentally or spiritually. You could have a focus on pupil wellbeing or wish to create a calm space for SEND pupils. Or, you may be simply looking for new ways to bring your school’s walls to life®

Wall Art for schools can help you do all of this…and much more. Here we explore the what, how, when, where and why of school Wall Art!

How can Wall Art help my school?

There are various ways of creating school Wall Art. At Promote Your School, we specialise in designing bespoke artwork that is completely unique to each school. Whilst all learning environments may share certain similarities, we believe that each school offers something special to its pupils, parents and staff. Your school’s ethos, vision, school values, curriculum, teaching approaches and inherent culture are what make you one of a kind. Wall Art should reflect the kind of school you are within its imagery, tone of voice and message.

Some school buildings are steeped in tradition, offering pupils the chance to learn within an architectural institution that has spanned generations. For these schools, Wall Art can reinforce their heritage and complement the stunning features of a traditional building. Modern schools and new builds can be enhanced with Wall Art that’s bursting with character and maintains a sleek, chic design or adds an Historical feel to their modern design. Many schools are keen to use their walls to celebrate school values and innovative approaches to teaching and technology. Faith schools, nurseries, community learning hubs, independent schools, universities and colleges often have a very specific set of values that make them who they are. Whatever your school’s background and approach, there is no other school quite like yours!

This is what we aim to celebrate with Wall Art for schools. It offers more than an aesthetic product that’s nice to look at. In fact, Wall Art can completely transform your school’s learning environment – and inspire, motivate and enthuse your pupils.

How to design Wall Art for schools

With 20 years’ experience in education design, we’re very confident that we’ll exceed customers’ expectations on every project. That said, we treat every project like a priority and apply our expertise, passion and creative flair to each design we create. Our first step after initial contact is to visit the school or set up a remote consultation – either of these is free of charge. During this session, we’ll discuss your school’s objectives and understand the areas you have in mind for your school Wall Art. If you’re not sure where to start, we can help! We can walk around your school (or you can give us a video tour for remote consultations) and make suggestions on how to maximise the space with bespoke Wall Art. Once we know what you have in mind, we’ll build a custom quote based on your needs and budget.

After you’ve approved the quote, we’ll finalise the design specifications and get to work creating some artwork. You’ll benefit from unlimited revisions to your designs at no extra cost (most schools tend to have two or three revisions). When the designs have been signed off, we’ll arrange print and installation at a time that suits you. We’re used to installing Wall Art over weekends and during half-term to minimise disruption to your school day!

How long does Wall Art last?

Wall Art is a sound investment for your school. We print on premium, industrial grade materials that are designed for busy school environments. So your school Wall Art will last many years. We’re fortunate to enjoy a strong relationship with our customers and are often asked to return after a year or two to install Wall Art in other areas of the school. Whenever we return, we’re pleased to notice that their existing Wall Art looks as good as it did when we installed it!  School Wall Art is also wipe clean…a must-have when little hands, dirty shoes and heavy footfall abound.

We’re very happy to share details of schools we’ve worked with so you can contact them for an objective view of our work. In some cases, you can even visit previous customers to check out their Wall Art for yourself. We’re very proud of our work, so offer full transparency on past projects, upfront costs and realistic expectations of what your Wall Art can achieve.

How much does Wall Art for schools cost?

Because all designs are bespoke, we are able to work to your school’s budget and needs. We don’t offer a one size fits all product, so we don’t offer generic pricing either. Once we’ve discussed your needs and we understand the kind of designs you’re after and the space you wish to cover, we’ll build a custom quote and send it to you for consideration.

As with any investment for your school, you get what you pay for! We offer unrivalled quality of design, exceptional customer service and expertise in the industry. When you choose to invest in Wall Art for your school, you’ll benefit from a fully consultative process. We’ll support and guide you throughout each stage of your project and do whatever we can to make sure your Wall Art is even better than you expected it to be. Our success depends on your satisfaction!

Do you only design for Walls?

No! Don’t be fooled by the name. We can design for your school’s walls, windows, floors, doors, external buildings and school signage. In fact, there is no limit to where we can install your beautiful bespoke school Wall Art. So why not get creative and think about how to use Wall Art to make your school stand out from the rest?
