Display Boards for Schools

Display boards are a commodity for any educational environment. Most school classrooms, halls and corridors are lined with wall mounted noticeboards, but schools can really benefit from using display boards too.

They are the perfect platform for showcasing everything from children’s work to visitor information and school news.

Display boards are freestanding which means they can be moved easily to any location. They are ideal for school reception areas, opens days, parents evenings, art exhibitions, school events and meetings.

Range of Styles

We offer the UK’s largest range of display boards for schools, including 6, 7 and 8 panel kits and modular panel and pole display boards in a range of different sizes. We also offer table top display boards which are ideal for classroom learning and small presentations.

Our pinnable display boards have the flexibility to be used with pins or Velcro, making them ideal for temporary displays that change content frequently.

With each style of display board you have the option of an aluminium or a PVC frame, ensuring that you are able to find a board that complements your classroom perfectly.

Jumbo display boards are available with 3 or 4 panels and are perfect for showcasing artwork and children’s work on parents evenings or at art exhibitions.

We have 13 different fabric colours to choose from for our display boards, giving you a wide range of variety when it comes to matching your school colours.

Flexible Display Solution

Panel and pole display boards can be set up in different configurations depending on the space you have available. They are perfect for creating different shapes such as zig zags and curves, or alternatively, you can place them in a straight line to showcase your information. We offer a 4, 6, 8 or 10 panel and pole display board kits.

These modular display boards can be added to at any time to create a larger display. You can attach additional poles and panels depending on how big you need your display to grow.

Folding display boards are lightweight and easy to assemble. The top section is made up of three panels that are hinged together and clip onto the bottom section. The header panel slots on top and comes with end clips which secures it in place.

The folding displays boards can be used in a U-shape or zig zag configuration. The display panels feature a recess on one side of the board and a flush finish on the reverse. This is handy as it allows you to keep your posters and notices in place, even when you dismantle the display board and fold it up.

All of our display boards are double sided which allows for a much larger viewing area and is ideal if the stand is in an area that will be seen from both sides.


Display boards can be used for a wide range of purposes. Not only can they be used for the most obvious reason - such as displaying pupil’s work - but they can be used as a simple way of providing information to staff about duties and future events.

Lightweight & Portable

All of our folding display kits are supplied with a carry bag which holds the complete kit. The black canvas bag allows you to easily transport your panels to any destination you need to.

Our best selling 6 panel PVC folding display board weighs just 6.1kg, making it light enough to take to any location in and around your school.

Easy To Assemble

Our school display boards take just minutes to assemble and can be built by one person. No tools are required for assembly.

The folding school display boards come with hinges in two sections; the top section simply clips on to the bottom section.

Our panel and pole display boards are just as easy to assemble and are supplied with everything you need in the kit. The panels feature clips which effortlessly attach the panels to the poles. You can choose to set up in a landscape or portrait orientation depending on how you need to use them. The orientation can be changed each time you use the display board kit.

Several Uses

We supply a wide range of display boards that are perfect for ESL or EAL teaching.

Display boards are Velcro friendly, which means that you can attach various learning materials to them without damaging the product.

This makes them perfect for educational games such as matching words to pictures when teaching English as a second/additional language.
