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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
More than 150 schools, colleges and universities across the UK and Ireland are using eLight’s Light Service model as a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly solution to lighting. Hear more from them…
We conduct a no obligation energy assessment and lighting survey for your school. This data driven approach allows us to accurately calculate your potential energy savings.
We then create an easy-to-digest proposal showing projected savings, which are always greater than our fixed monthly fee.
After working with over 150 schools, we know how to eliminate disruption, installing during evenings, weekends and holidays.
As part of our service contract, we will maintain your schools lights at their optimum level for the full length of the contract.
On average, schools have saved 68% on lighting costs when switching to light as a service. Try our calculator tool to see how much you could save; simply answer 4 questions & get your estimated savings in a matter of minutes.
These are the most common questions schools ask when considering our service. If you have any questions not covered here, feel free to contact our advisors who will be happy to answer them.
After the contract is paid, you can expect to see a long-term reduction in lighting costs. We will present an optional extended warranty so that you can enjoy lifetime free maintenance of the products.
You will! eLight have completed over 800 projects and our data driven process and technology platform ensures total accuracy in calculating both your current costs and projected savings.
We have supplier level agreements with four of the top LED lighting manufacturers in Europe, which gives us access to the highest quality lighting at the most competitive pricing. This means that, even with our fee added, the total price you pay over the contract will be comparable to installing the lights yourself.
By using eLight, you are eliminating the need for upfront costs (£200k is the average capital cost to switch to LED for large independent school), and including maintenance in fixed monthly fees.
Our contracts are typically for 5-7 years, during which we fully maintain your lighting.
We’ll ensure our funding solution is Department for Education compliant where applicable.
