Chart Area Seating's Supporting Schools programme

Our Supporting Schools programme comprises the following key principles:

Information: The provision of clear, accurate and comprehensive resources to the decision-makers at academic institutions to enable them to comprehensively research Product: We regularly take in sample chairs to schools and often leave them with the school to allow the team there to assess and evaluate the chair they are considering over several days to ensure they have fully satisfied themselves the chair represents the right answer for the school
Financial: Offering the most aggressive discounts possible to enable schools to obtain the very best quality chairs possible with the budgets at their disposal

At Chart Area Seating we have had the opportunity to work closely with some of the UK's leading schools to deliver new seating which better serves the energetic, vibrant and dynamic environments of the modern learning provider.

Through this experience and in speaking to the committed professionals who facilitate the highest standards of learning we have gained invaluable insight into some of the challenges which confront school staff and the many demands which are placed on them.

At Chart Area Seating we firmly believe that good quality, design led stacking and linking seating can enhance the learning experience for pupils as well as better reflecting the values of these schools.

We feel strongly that a more comfortable chair with ergonomic features reduces user discomfort and improves attention and concentration levels allowing the user to focus more fully on the lessons and lectures.

A well designed stacking or linking chair can incorporate features which make it safer to use preventing tipping back alleviating pressure on the chairs' joints and reducing the chances of falling backwards.

At Chart Area Seating we specialise in the supply of stacking seating and linking chairs which are manufactured with environmental and ecological sensitivity, utilising recycled and recyclable materials meaning that the children who sit on them today may be using them in an entirely different form a generation later.

We at Chart Area Seating really want all pupils and their schools to be able to enjoy the benefits of the developments and progressive features incorporated in leading stacking and linking chairs and this led us to launch our Supporting Schools programme. Realising that the teams who work at schools are under incredible time-pressure we wanted to do all that is possible to provide support when they came to address a requirement for new seating.

If you are a school with a current seating requirement and would like to receive some information on seating products please don't hesitate to contact us or email advising your quantity and specification requirement and project timeframe
