How is your school impressing your visitors?

Many different people walk through your school doors every day –whether it be prospective students, new members of staff or a parent. Make sure that the first impression you create is a good one.

A school reception area is more than skin deep. A friendly atmosphere helps to reflect the character and ethos of your school. But the reception area has more purposes than just being an entranceway to your school. It is likely to be a fully functioning central hub for your school where all the administration, paper storage and IT solutions are handled daily. The flow of people within this space has to be carefully considered. Make sure that your reception area is reflecting the great place that your school is.
