Get in touch

If you are looking to install a school canopy in your outdoor space, but are unsure of which installation team you can trust- Canopies Shelters are the perfect team for you! We install canopies for schools all across the UK.

Many outdoor canopies and shelters that we have set up in the many years we have worked have been changed into outdoor teaching areas by the owners due to the many benefits they have to offer, such as weather protection (UV protection), a dining space, an ability to explore the surrounding environment.

School canopies and outdoor classrooms are long-lasting and the advantages they offer are becoming increasingly recognised by Ofsted and therefore many schools across the UK are now deciding to implement one of these playground shelters facilities in their education sector.

The small space they require in your outdoor areas supports the excellent value for money that the school receives. The sheltered area over the outside play area should provide enough room for the intended use, as well as allowing access for playing outside.

To find out more information, contact us via the provided contact form below and our team will respond as soon as possible to ensure that you are completely filled in with any information that you require regarding school canopies.


What are Outdoor Space Canopies?

Outdoor canopies are excellent facilities for primary and secondary schools as they provide an outdoor space available all year round to teach pupils outside instead of inside. On a nice day, the fresh air that a child receives whilst learning in a playground canopy/ outdoor classroom can provide them with a much better experience of learning in the great outdoors, rather than the school buildings.

Ideal locations on the school site for the shelters include things like outdoor learning spaces which are often found at primary schools and a secondary school.

This might be to keep the young children under sheltered spaces during outside sports and outdoor lessons. Our company has worked with numerous children's facilities so we know what is required and how to supply the most effective help for these projects. This may be in relation to budget problems, ensuring little interference in the kids' routine, along with the importance of using certified staff at each and every school canopy project.

Numerous professional organisations also employ our products to create a covered space over a sitting area along with other external facilities. This can be for a lot of facilities, for example, outdoor dining canopies, entrance canopies, covered walkways, or smokers' shelters.

We’ll aim to get the best outdoor canopy designs to fit your spending budget and just what you're looking for. For this reason, our company has developed a wide variety of attractive and affordable shelter solutions. A well-designed outdoor area that matches customer preferences will ensure that visitors keep coming back and maybe persuaded to stay longer.

External Educational Canopies

External school canopy is an excellent facility to install in a playground of a primary school or nursery. The many benefits it provides to the pupils, teachers, and the school make it difficult not to implement an area. If your secondary or primary school has major space outside in the playground, it is definitely worth considering an external teaching facility that will provide shelter due to the value for money you will receive.

The canopies for schools that we offer are made of high-quality materials to ensure that the facility is durable all year round and stays sturdy for as long as possible. With the correct proactive maintenance strategy, you can maximise the lifespan of your canopy and ensure that it lasts as long as possible.

It will also allow you to identify any minor damages before they expand into much larger hazards that cost much more money and time to repair. In relation to repairing a facility, we always advise contacting us to receive all of the necessary information regarding repair procedures.
