How to make a great wall display

I love a good wall display. It can make the room or corridor come alive. I know how hard however it has been for me to get sorted with decent wall displays. My first head of department helped me loads. As an art teacher he taught me lots about how to make the display really work. Another old colleague of mine, Kelly Hawkins, taught me a lot about how to make great displays too.

I do get a bit annoyed when I see wall displays that have no purpose. I often hear stories about wall displays going up just to satisfy the whim of leadership who are concerned for reasons other than learning. I don’t think spaces should be used up with posters for the sake of posters either. By all means have reminder posters for class rules, ethos indicator posters (although Carl Hendrick might disagree). I think it is important to have consistent messages in spaces across a school.
