Optimise your dining hall with Versa’s space-saving solutions

As educators and administrators increasingly recognise the impact of the physical environment on students’ academic performance and overall well-being, it becomes imperative to optimise every aspect of the campus – including the often-overlooked dining hall. The way a school designs its canteen can significantly influence students’ attitudes towards food, social interaction, and their overall sense of belonging. By introducing Westcountry Group’s Versa space-saving dining tables, you not only create more room for students to navigate comfortably, but also promote a more inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels welcome to partake in mealtime activities.

We will look at the Versa range of products and explain how these innovative solutions can positively impact student satisfaction, behaviour, and even academic success.

Westcountry Group’s – Versa space-saving mobile-dining tables for school environments

Wall Pocket Tables

Are you looking to revolutionise your school dining experience? Versa Wall Pockets are the answer. These innovative tables not only seat 20–80 children but can also be conveniently locked away in a wall pocket when not needed, making them the perfect solution for dining in multi-use spaces eg. school halls. Their versatility is unmatched, allowing you to use both tables and benches independently, either attached or disconnected from the wall, giving you full control over the layout and your space.

What sets our Versa Wall Pockets apart is their ability to seamlessly integrate into any environment, providing a practical solution for schools and educational institutions seeking to maximise their available space. Whether it’s a bustling cafeteria or a multipurpose hall, they offer flexibility without sacrificing functionality.

Benchmark Tables

Versa Benchmark tables can seat up to 20 children. With different configurations, you can mix and match a variety of sizes to accommodate varying numbers of students. This not only maximises the use of available space but also encourages a more inclusive and interactive environment. With Benchmark, schools can optimise their dining areas without compromising on functionality or accessibility, ultimately providing a comfortable and engaging space for students to enjoy their meals.

The compact storage feature is particularly impressive, as six units use just 1.6m × 2.24m of space, allowing for efficient utilisation of limited facilities.

Hallmark Tables

Hallmark tables are a game-changer, providing innovative solutions for dining areas. With the ability to comfortably seat up to 16 children, they come in a variety of shapes including square, rectangular, round, octagonal, and elliptical options. What’s more impressive is their flexibility in incorporating wheelchair access spaces, making them inclusive and accommodating for all students.

Designed with functionality in mind, they not only optimise space but also add a touch of modern aesthetic to canteens. The myriad of shape options allows schools to customise their layouts based on available space and specific needs. We have thoughtfully addressed seating arrangements for larger groups while maintaining practicality and style simultaneously. These tables demonstrate an understanding of contemporary educational settings and provide a fresh perspective on optimising communal spaces.


ConverTables are innovative folding bench tables that do three jobs and takes up the minimum amount of storage. This versatile table transforms from a single-sided table to a bench table or a full-size dining table. This adaptability allows staff to swiftly transform their spaces for different activities, promoting an efficient use of space without compromising on comfort.

Their ability to nest neatly for storage is perfect for schools facing spatial constraints. This feature not only streamlines the tidying process but also opens up possibilities for creating versatile, multi-functional spaces within the school environment. Imagine easily transitioning from a lively lunch setting to a collaborative learning area with just a few simple adjustments – it’s the epitome of practicality and resourcefulness.
