Full service furniture solutions for Education
Godfrey Syrett’s Education division is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of educational furniture for primary schools, secondary schools and academies. We provide fitted and loose furniture for all areas, including classrooms, libraries, canteens and breakout areas.
We’ve been delivering inspirational environments for almost 70 years. We understand that our clients want exceptional learning environments for their students, which will encourage collaborative learning and increased engagement. We also know that all of this needs to come within a tight budget.
We are a member of the Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC, UK) and Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC, Scotland), with an extensive knowledge base and an enviable portfolio of completed projects.
We don’t just manufacture furniture, we offer a full end-to-end service for our customers. Our highly experienced Design and Space Planning teams are located across the country and will work with you to define your requirements, create mood boards and product visualisations; right down to animated walkthroughs and detailed floor plans. Products are then produced in our factories in the North East of England, which specialise in steel, wood and upholstery work.
We use AutoCAD and Revit as our space planning tools; and are fully BIM compliant.
Delivery and Installation
Once the products are ready for delivery; we’ll send them out on one of our new, specialist delivery vehicles. We’ll let you know when this will be, so you can be ready. And it doesn’t just stop at delivery – our fully trained installation teams will build and install your furniture, and even take away all of the packing once it’s complete.
Why choose us?
Our customers tell us that it’s our service (as well as our furniture designs) that sets us apart from the rest. As a manufacturer we have total control over the design and manufacture of the furniture and offer an attractive range of finishes and fabrics to choose from. Our in house Space Planning team takes the customer's brief and works in collaboration with our clients to create a layout using the latest REVIT software, so that our customers can see our vision for their school. Once agreed, the products are manufactured at our factories and an installation plan is agreed. This means that our customers only need to discuss their requirements with one company who then provide the perfect solution.
Recent projects include Rhyl High School, Consett Academy and Brumby Junior School.

What Our Customers Say
“Godfrey Syrett provided a fantastic product and service in helping to fit out the new build at St Michael’s. From comprehensive advice and support at the ordering stage, to pulling out all the stops in a tight fit out window, they really went the extra mile. The pupils, teachers and wider community at St Michael’s are delighted with the new build and the furniture that’s helping make it such an outstanding learning environment.”

“Throughout the planning stage, numerous on-site meetings were held and nothing was too much trouble.
The products are specifically designed for a school environment, are hard-wearing, comfortable to use and value for money.
Overall the experience of working with Godfrey Syrett was excellent and stress free. I would have no hesitation in using them again for the supply of education furniture.”
