First impressions count – your school will shine

Design Expertise

Your school reception is where visitors, new staff, prospective students and parents see the inside of your school for the first time.

Envoplan’s expertise in designing and manufacturing welcoming comfortable reception areas combined with your friendly staff will make your visitors’ initial experience of your school a happy and positive one.

Whether you are looking for a grand entrance or a friendly welcome, our school reception area design service will help you achieve what is best for your school.

Taking a intelligent design-led approach to your school reception area interior design and refurbishment project will help you create that stunning first impression – for students, prospective parents and staff alike. 

Safeguarding and collaboration

We’ll help you create a suitable and welcoming first impression in a professional yet functional reception area that really reflects your school’s values as well as safeguarding students and staff.  We’re here to assist you through the whole design journey:

Safeguarding And Collaboration

Staff and admin offices

Often it’s necessary for the school admin offices to located close to your school reception area.

We’ll work with your team to space plan the environment, making sure it truly works for you.

Our user-centred design approach will take into account the needs of your entire admin team. 

School reception waiting spaces

School reception area waiting spaces are a reflection of your school brand.

It’s here that visitors to your school will settle once they’ve arrived, and take account of their surroundings. We’ll work with you to create waiting areas for visitors, either situated within the main reception area, or in an adjacent room.

We’ll help you match furniture and décor to the style and character of your building, helping to portray a memorable and welcoming first impression. 

Reception areas

Events, weddings and more

Your school reception area is often more than just a school reception area.

Sometimes it may be used for weddings, special events or other purposes.

Whether your reception area is situated in a listed building or a new block, our specialist design team will bridge the gap between the architecture of your space and the end users.

Smart, discreet storage

Storage that looks good but performs even better.

We manufacture storage to suit your unique requirements. Our in-house furniture manufacturing facility lets us create a furniture solution that will meet your unique needs, as well as being durable and discreet.

You can choose from a range of finishes and colours, selecting storage and furniture styles that will complement your building and preferred school colours.
