Exterior School Signs

Main School Signs

For pupils and visitors, exterior signs are often their first introduction to the school environment as a whole; as such, it’s crucial that they assist in making that first impression a positive one.

For a professional, academic style, we offer built-up and flat-cut lettering options, designed to complement the architecture of your school and give a sophisticated look and feel. Need something a little less formal? Our flex face signs can be printed in full colour with any design you choose; ideal for nurseries, playground signs, or primary school settings.

Safety and Wayfinding Signs

Floor Signs

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing floor graphics have become a familiar sight across the UK. With so many schools deciding to maintain a commitment to social distancing, it’s important to ensure your signage is up to the task.

Our floor graphics are made from a tough, durable vinyl that can withstand high footfall areas, and are available in a variety of sizes to suit any space. Our installation team are trained in the compliant placement of floor graphics, ensuring a safe and speedy flow around all educational establishments.

Directional Signs

For colleges, universities, and larger schools, signage that serves a navigational purpose is essential.

Our directional signs are available in a wide range of materials, from traditional metal and acrylic to more modern options like Foamex and Dibond. Whatever your choice, our nationwide installation service will ensure they are installed safely, and to your display requirements.

Door Signs

Whether you need a single classroom door sign, a new sign for the office of the head teacher office, or new signs for every room in the building, JMF Group are on-hand to create signage and display products that are just right.

We offer a wide variety of standardised door signs, as well as bespoke sign options to suit your specific needs.

Car Park and Road Safety Signs

Car parks and roads can be dangerous places, especially during drop-off and pick-up times. With this in mind, it’s important to make sure your car park is well-signed, to help promote the safety of both pupils and parents.

From playground signs warning students, to road signs that speak directly to drivers, we can supply professional and highly-visible school signs that will help to keep everyone safe.

Fire Exit Signs

Fire exits are a crucial part of any educational establishment, and must be clearly signposted to ensure the safety of everyone on the premises.
