CPC’s new School and Academies Furniture and Associated Services framework will help to support members with a wide range of school furniture items and services available throughout its 7 categorised lots.

We embarked on creating this framework to provide a more bespoke offering and flexible solution to our members in the schools and academies sector.

Not only does this new framework offer competitive pricing and a compliant route to market, but it also has additional benefits such as specialist suppliers for specific requirements, including furniture for children with special needs. We understand the importance of industry knowledge when it comes to providing the best environment for children to learn in. Our highly qualified suppliers have the expertise in the design elements required to provide the right solutions.

The framework has 7 lots that include:

Lot 1

Classroom and education furniture – free standing

Lot 2

General administrative, storage and conference furniture

Lot 3

Dining room furniture

Lot 4

Library area furniture

Lot 5

Special Educational Needs and early years furniture and accessories

Lot 6

Specialist rooms

Lot 7

Staging and performance areas

Each lot offers institutions a full-service furniture solution including optional additional services such as planning, design, installation, fitting, and aftersales support.

The framework went live on the 25th March 2021 and will be in place until the 24th March 2024, with the option to extend for a further 12 months. More information about the framework and the bespoke user guide is available on our School and Academies Furniture and Associated Services framework page
