Resourcing and creating a school environment, from scratch, has been an interesting and exciting journey and Westcare have supported us to create the vision. Westcare were chosen because of the service they provide, their pricing policy and the fact that we wanted to support a local company. They have sourced resources, manufactured bespoke furniture and provided advice and guidance on room layouts. We will continue to work closely with Westcare as our school grows.

“Westcare were invited to quote for the refurbishment of one of our science laboratories and one of our rooms that needed to be converted into a teaching area. After handling a completed furniture refit of our humanities block of 14 classrooms we have come to know the Westcare team well and indeed we now contact them for a quote or just advice for much of our procurement. It is always a pleasure to deal with such a friendly, professional and efficient local company and would not hesitate to recommend them. Westcare carried out full site surveys and produced plans and layouts which enabled staff to make decisions regarding outcomes. The refurbishment works were undertaken during the summer holidays and were completed in time for the new term. The rooms were fitted out with a high standard of bespoke furniture. It is always a pleasure to deal with such a friendly, professional and efficient local company and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
