Places & Spaces

school hall
School halls

Leaders within the education sector should consider the benefits of having a well-lit school hall and the impact it can have on the mood, energy, and motivation of students.

The school hall is the heart of the school; it’s where the whole school gathers for assembly and where parents are invited to come and watch the school production, and where awards are handed out. The school hall is also often used for exams – these important moments all happen within this one space.

High-quality LED lighting within a school hall can vastly improve the experience for students.

 

Classrooms

The classroom environment and lighting can be directly linked to pupil performance; if planned and designed well, it can increase learning progression by up to 25 percent, according to a study undertaken in 2012.

The installation of good quality lighting in classrooms benefits both teachers and students, leading to better focus, better behaviour, and increased positive learning experiences.

Flickering lights and can distract students and cause health issues such as migraines. Classroom lighting can be improved with an upgrade to LED lighting.

Hallway
Hallways

Hallways within schools often lack natural light; it is, therefore, important to consider lighting them efficiently as the lights will be in regular use. The installation of LED lighting can mean students can safely move around the school building and that the lighting of hallways is as energy-efficient as possible.

As hallways are frequently used to evacuate from the school building in case of emergencies, it is also important from a health and safety perspective that hallways are well-lit to facilitate speedy exits. LED lighting is a cost-effective and long-lasting solution.

sports hall
Sports halls

The lighting for a sports hall requires flexibility – it is important that this area within a school has high-quality lighting to prevent accidents.  LED lighting can transform a school sports hall and make it a flexible space that can be used for a multitude of activities.

The lighting within a sports hall has very specific requirements; the lighting needs to be both glare-free and designed for high impact. LED lighting can ensure that students and teachers can enjoy the space for a whole range of sporting activities and competitions.

Staff rooms

The staff room lighting should be comfortable for the staff to carry out a range of administrative tasks whilst also being a space where they can come to relax and socialise.

LED lighting can transform this important space within your school – research carried out regarding workplace wellness highlighted that 50% of those questioned prioritised comfortable lighting, second after air quality as the most important environmental wellness factor that mattered most to them.
