What are the best school chairs for primary schools?


Having the finest student classroom chairs coupled with flexible classroom seating helps to create an engaging learning environment, especially for young children that have a natural need to be physically active.

For this reason, we want to share the best classroom seating for your primary schools. At Abax Kingfisher, we have created classroom chairs that your students will love. These include:

Classic Classroom Chair

Ariah Chair

The Ariah chair has a specially made shell with a ribbed back which allows the chair to ‘flex’ without breaking, this design provides wonderful back support for growing students.

Once you have chosen your chairs, it is time to think about a seating plan. Here are a few options to consider:

Sitting in a Row

This is the most traditional and common way of seating, with students sitting by themselves at a desk. The desks are organised in rows with equal space between them and their classmates. The number of rows and the number of students in each row will depend on the size of your classroom and amount of students. Although this layout makes it easier for students to complete individual work, it is harder for them to collaborate.

blankSitting in Groups

Placing students into small groups, will enable them to work collaboratively. This type of seating arrangement is the most social, as students will often work together. This type of seating arrangement allows teachers to observe how students work together, as well as the quality of work they produce in this way.

blankSitting in a U-Shape

U-shape, or semi-circular seating is shown to increase engagement in the lessons compared to rows or groups. It allows for easy class discussion as some students will be facing each other in the room. The U-shape seating arrangement promotes better eye-contact with all students and gives the lesson a more collaborative feel.
