Give Your Pupils, Staff and Parents a Warm Welcome with Your School Reception Area
Your school reception area is the heart of a school and should provide a warm welcome with a vibrant feel. You will want to create that stunning first and last impression of your school for your students, staff and prospective parents alike!
A schools reception area can be a very busy hub of activity with the movements of teachers and students changing at different times of the day. It is important to give an excellent first impression of your school brand so a bright and fresh interior design will ensure your reception does not look messy or feel claustrophobic.
The School Reception Desk
A key feature of this area is the reception desk and its location. While it needs great storage, a desk should not be an eye-sore and so can be designed as a visual feature too.
A reception desk space should be designed around the user, the receptionist, so they feel comfortable while working and safe when dealing with the public. Things like integrated cable management and computer privacy screens are a couple of design features that could be introduced.
This reception desk is a feature within the school entrance with a high gloss finish, in white to match the colour of the walls and was designed with LED lighting.
A Multi-Purpose School Workspace
A school reception area is used constantly throughout a school day and even after hours so a flexible design is very important to cater for all it’s uses.
Having the right amount of lighting and in the right places is an important factor for the receptionist’s who’s workspace it is and also for those passing through.
Soft seating is a comfortable solution for waiting areas for parents and visitors with the option for bespoke furniture to make the best of the space available.
Your Schools Branding
It’s important that parents, students, staff and visitors are aware of your schools’ branding and can easily identify them as they visit. This can be done by incorporating the school colours into the reception area and continued throughout the building so it’s cohesive and impactful.
St Mary Magdalene needed a creative eye and experienced interior designers to design and refurbish their reception area to something brighter, more modern and spacious.
The new design incorporated the schools branding and several glass partitions to encourage a more open-plan reception area. A new school reception desk was needed to accommodate two receptionists as well as a separate office workspace too.
