LED LIGHTING FOR SCHOOLS
Create a better learning environment and reduce costs
LED lighting uses less energy and lasts a long time, thereby reducing energy and maintenance costs. It also produces cleaner, brighter light which makes for an improved learning environment.
- LED lighting significantly reduces your energy bill
- Upgrade your school’s lighting with minimal disruption
- No upfront costs with government-backed funding for state schools
- We’ll take care of the Salix application
- Save even more money with our inclusive Save Energy Package

We’ve helped many schools make a smooth transition to modern LED lighting. So we understand your needs.
Making the switch to LED lighting will help your school reduce its outgoings, which is particularly important in this era of budget cuts. And with interest-free Salix funding you’ll have no upfront costs – the energy savings will actually pay for the upgrades.
Why should schools opt for LED lighting?
Reduce your energy bills
LED lighting is extremely energy efficient when compared to traditional lighting. Less energy used means less money spent on electricity. When you add it up over the long-term, the savings can reach six figures.
Lower maintenance costs
LED lighting has a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, which is fifty times longer than incandescent bulbs, and ten times longer than traditional energy-saving lamps. On top of that: LED lighting is extremely durable, meaning it’s less likely to break or fail.
This sort of staying power means less money spent on replacements.
LED lighting is safer than traditional lighting
Traditional bulbs such as incandescent and compact fluorescents contain glass and mercury, a hazardous chemical. So when broken, they pose additional health and safety risks. Because they get very hot, they also pose a fire risk.
LEDs don’t contain any hazardous materials and they stay relatively cool, which makes them the safest option on the market.
Create a better teaching and learning environment
Modern LED lighting helps to improve the school environment in several ways:
Cleaner, brighter light. Improved lighting conditions means less eye strain and more productivity.
Instant light. LEDs don’t need to warm up. So you can get straight to work.
Less heat. Traditional lighting gets very hot, which can make the school environment more uncomfortable in the summer. LED lighting produces very little heat.
It can be tailored to your needs
LED lighting is tunable, which basically means you can tune it to different colour temperatures to suit the workspace.
For example, you might need clean, day-level light in the art-room where seeing details is essential; but you may want softer light in the admin office to make it a more comfortable environment.
Improve the external environment
LEDs aren’t just great for internal spaces, they’re also perfect for the external school environment. Having clearly lit walkways and carparks can make a real difference for people visiting your school in the evening.
Reduce your carbon footprint and inspire children
If you’re committed to going green and reducing your carbon footprint, then switching to LED lighting will help you achieve that goal.
You can also use it as a talking-point to engage your pupils with environmental issues and show them you’re committed to protecting the planet.

Why choose us to install your LED lighting?
We’ve worked with many schools, so we understand your needs
You have procedures, budget concerns and scheduling to think about. Having worked with many schools (primary and secondary), we understand the hurdles you face.
We do the heavy lifting for you
We know how busy you are. So we take care of all the scoping, planning and implementation.
Our service is designed to help you make a smooth, hassle-free switch to LED lighting.
We also take care of the Salix application for you
If you’re eligible for Salix funding, we’ll make the application on your behalf. We know exactly what’s needed to maximise your chances of securing the funding.
Go here if you would like more information about the Salix initiative.
We don’t charge for initial site survey
Some companies will charge for an initial site survey – and that’s before you’ve actually decided to go with them.
We work differently as our aim is to deliver as much value to schools as possible.
Education is an important part of life, which is why it shouldn’t be disrupted.
So we will work to your schedule, which includes carrying out work during holidays, half-terms, evenings and weekends.
Our Save Energy Package
We’ll save you even more money by sourcing a better energy deal for you. If you accept the contract, you’ll get access to a grant from the Save Energy Fund to put towards the project.
High quality products
Quality is an essential part of our ethos. Balanced against budgetary needs, we source the best-built LED products on the market.
This offers more value as cheaper products tend to fail more often, meaning more maintenance costs and disruption.
Disposal of old fittings
This is included in the price of the project. We ensure that all the old lighting is disposed of according to compliance regulation.
So it’s one less thing for you to worry about.
1 year onsite warranty
If something needs fixing in the first year, we’ll send someone out to take care of it.
5 year product warranty (hassle free)
We’re confident about the quality of the LED products we use. This is why we provide a 5 year product warranty as standard.
Going by the old wisdom, ‘treat others how you would like to be treated’, we pride ourselves on being open and upfront. You’ll always get a straight answer from us.
Going the extra mile
We love going out of our way to exceed expectations.
We are here to give honest help and solve any issues. We always try to see things from our customers’ perspective, finding the best solution.

Save even more money with our inclusive Save Energy Package
Choosing us to install your LED lighting gives you three added benefits that you’ll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere:
- We’ll find you a competitive energy contract
- We’ll extend our onsite warranty to match the term of the new energy contract
- We'll help you access a grant from the Save Energy Fund
So not only will you reduce your lighting bill with more efficient technology, you’ll also get a competitive energy contract and some cash to pay for the lighting upgrades.
What is Salix funding and who qualifies for it?
Salix is a government backed initiative designed to help organisations in the public sector lower their carbon emissions by upgrading to more energy efficient technology, such as LED lighting.
It provides interest-free funding to organisations in the public sector – including state schools – that goes toward the cost of the improvements.
You’ll only qualify if the project can demonstrably lower your energy consumption.
This is where we can really help out. As professional energy consultants, we’ll perform a full survey to determine exactly what you’re using now and then calculate the savings you’ll make with your lighting upgrade.
Then, with our experience and knowledge of the Salix funding process, we’ll fill in the application for you, thereby giving your school the best possible chance of qualifying (we currently have a 100% success rate).
If you qualify, you won’t have any upfront costs as the payments will be spread.
And the best thing is, the savings you’ll make on energy bills will end up paying for the project!
