45 fitting days to Christmas

Christmas season is coming

Half-term is behind us, which means that we are already counting down to Christmas. Where does the year go?

If the run up to Christmas means that your classes will have entertainment on their minds also, why not give this year’s production a lift with improved school stage curtains?

Our stage curtains can help to bring a touch of magic to your Nativity and help lift both the spirits and performance of your school’s young cast.

Follow the link to see an example of a flexible school stage curtains setup we installed for Kingsnorth Primary School.

Time is running out though for your school to take the chance to install or change your stage curtains. Contact us today to arrange a measure and quotation on 0845 853 0400 or by email at

Give your school a special present this year and make your Christmas productions shine.

School’s out for the summer!

We would like to wish our clients (end everybody else) a well deserved summer break – let’s hope the sunshine decides to turn up at some point…

No rest for the wicked though, and we will be filling our summer with a number of projects around various schools.

We are always on the end of the phone is something crops up or if you have a requirement for blinds or curtains for your school. Please give us a call on 0845 853 0400, we will be glad to help.

Welcome to Schools Direct

Hello, and thank you for visiting the blog for Schools Direct.Welcome to Schools Direct

This is an opportunity we hope to be able to converse with our existing or prospective customers and to pass on information, share a little about ourselves and generally inform, or at least entertain a bit.

For those who don’t already know us, Schools Direct have been making and supplying blinds and curtains for schools and colleges for many years. We’ve worked with over 600 schools in total, a fact of which we are very proud.

We are a small business based around tight family ties, and more years of experience in the blind and curtain market than is probably healthy.

However, this experience does bring benefits for our customers, who are rarely able to surprise us with their needs (though they are regularly able to surprise in other ways!)

We like to think we are able to help select the best options for any individual window or room, from the style of blind to the fabrics and the way the blinds are hung or fittings sited. Where needed we will advise on the best options to help you get the most from your budgets, and to try and ensure that anything you spend is going to deliver the best possible returns.

So what will this blog offer? We hope it will be a mix of useful information, both about the industry in general and about our business, as well as more specific topics that might be of interest or use to schools. As said at the outset, we hope it will be a conversation and as such we welcome all comments, feedback, ideas or questions that anybody may have.

Thank you for reading, and we hope you will come back again in the future.
