Our top 6 School Whiteboards
The classroom was once completely dominated by the blackboard, with the sound of chalk squeaking against the board, and the cloud of dust as the teacher cleaned away yesterday's work a common occurrence. Whiteboards have become much more commonplace in recent years as the classroom has been updated. Now, the task of explaining, displaying and exploring information has been passed to the whiteboard in the classroom that has been tasked with educating the new generation.
You may still find blackboards in some schools. They do have their uses, but with the whiteboard offering a minimum amount of mess and maximum effectiveness, it is fast becoming the popular choice for any modern classroom.
With this in mind, here we have put together a list of our top 6 school whiteboards.
1. Ultra Smooth Magnetic Whiteboards

When it comes to school whiteboards, our customers are looking for something that provides a smooth surface and is very durable, and this whiteboard fits the bill perfectly. It should be suitable for dry wipe writing and easy to clean. This whiteboard is great for classroom learning and can be used either in a landscape or portrait orientation. There is also a handy pen tray to help the teacher keep pens at the ready.
The Ultra Smooth Whiteboard is also magnetic, which can be a very handy feature.

3. Revolving Whiteboards
Mobile revolving whiteboards can be a convenient choice for those teachers who move around the school and use different classrooms to teach the same lesson. These whiteboards offer two writing surfaces and can be angled to make them visible to the whole classroom. Not only does this whiteboard revolve to offer you double the writing space, but it also comes on castors, meaning you can move it around. This is ideal when you need to move your class to another room, for whatever reason, as you can take any work you have already written out on the board with you allowing for continuous education to take place. The revolving whiteboard can be locked in place for safety and can also take magnets, making it a really versatile piece of classroom equipment.
4. Space Saver Whiteboards
When space is at a premium in the classroom, but you need plenty of whiteboard space to teach, then the space saver whiteboard is a perfect choice. This whiteboard uses hinged panels that act like doors and offers you three times the size of writing board space when opened. This is great for lesson preparation as you can close the panels over the board and hide any information that you might not want your class to see until later in a lesson; while allowing you to write it up in advance.
The whiteboard is available in a variety of sizes, with the larger ones having 3 panels, 2 doors, and the smaller ones having just 2 panels with one door. With this board, you can make lesson planning simpler and easier by pre-preparing your lesson in advance and covering it up until you need it. This board is available with either magnetic or non-magnetic surfaces and even comes with a handy pen tray.

6. Handheld A4 Magnetic Whiteboards (10 pack)

Pupils love using them, and they are a great interactive tool that teachers can really use to encourage the children in their class to engage with each other.
