St. Wilfrid's Catholic High School


For the past 20 years, FASTSIGNS Leeds has worked with local Leeds school St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School, providing them with interior and exterior signs for their school and grounds.

FASTSIGNS Leeds Director, Andy Simpson, went to the school 1981-1988 and his father and Co-Director, Chris Simpson, was on the chair of governors during the early 1990s.

St Wilfrid’s were FASTSIGNS Leeds’ first ever client, back when we installed an entrance sign for the sixth form Centre in 1995. We are still supplying the school with signs and graphics in 2017.

The Challenge

St Wilfrid’s have needed a range of exterior signs over the years.

To help them increase the visibility of the school from the road and make a good impression on the local area we have provided external signs including; school entrance signs; block names signs; directional finger posts; banners; and memorial plaques.

We’ve also helped the school to create an inspiring learning environment by providing internal signs and graphics including; wallpaper and vinyl wall wraps; department signs; window graphics; canteen signs and graphics.

The Results

On almost every project, we have been involved from the very start, advising the school as to which products best suit their objectives, as well as providing visuals and designs. We have also come in at a later stage to help with last minute, time-sensitive projects.
