Working with….

Schools & Colleges

Whether state or private, independent or academy, Ligneus delivers efficient & sustainable solutions creating the optimum environment to nuture potential.

How we can help

Ligneus has works across the country in state and independent primary and secondary schools, academies, further education, sixth-form and specialist colleges to deliver solutions from the kitchen and canteen to the classroom and library. We have found that all solutions are about creating a comfortable nurturing environment with a strong economic and ethical focus.

We work in partnership with the education sector to develop solutions in all areas of the academic life.

Canteen / Food Hall

School dinners are not the butt of jokes as they were not so long ago. Vast improvements to menus and options have now made very desireable as part of the balanced school day. Focus should also be on presentation and setting the scene for a relaxed and calm environment.

From catering trays and serving trolleys to gastronorm displays and even a modular buffet system we have plenty that should inspire and provide a solution.

School Shop

Whether tuck shop or stationery store the school shops varies from the most desired place to be to simply a necessity. Which ever it is Ligneus products will play a role. Either as supplies themselves like drop front trays keeping desks tidy or displaying stock such as the merchandising queue dividers.


As the heart of the educational structure with the most frequent use furniture and equipment needs to be of the highest durability. From our incredibly robust table and benches to our storage crates and crate walls, not only are our products incredibly practical but they are built to last.


The quiet sanctity of the library is crucial for focusing on studies. Our wooden products can blend into the back ground offering little in the way of distraction.

From mobile crate displays carrying the burden of knowledge to drop front trays maintaining order our products are invaluable.
