Stapleford Primary School in Cambridge is a vibrant village school. They added a high quality, large 6m x 6m Maxima shade sail to their playground to ensure the children can learn and play outdoors all- year-round. The importance of outdoor play is highlighted by Ofsted in their inspections and this school has ticked every box in this regard. The colourful area, complete with play frame, now has shade and shelter so that in even the wettest or warmest weather, the children still have the option to play out if they should want to. No more indoor play days at Stapleford Primary School. We think it looks fantastic in bright white, a really striking canopy.
The result is happier children who are able to run off steam in the outdoor space all through the year. They can have storytime and lessons under the canopy in the summer now if they want to, shaded from UV rays. What a lovely option and a stylish outside space that looks modern, completes the playground beautifully and provides weather protection all year round. It’s fantastic the difference a simple canopy can make to a school.

The opportunity to cycle to college is a valuable one, encouraging students to make exercise part of their daily routine and ensuring they start the day in the most alert state of mind possible. However, to grant them this opportunity requires a high quality of cycle storage, the kind that means you can have confidence that the bikes stored are as safe as they could be.
So when Jesus College at the University of Cambridge got in touch with canopy and shelter specialists A&S Landscape to install some cycle storage we knew it was because we have some of the most robust cycle shelters on the market. Jesus College chose a Cyclo City bicycle rack to a size of 5500mm x 2000mm, finished in a deep, grey steelwork (RAL 7013) and with plenty of space for storage. Opal roofing gives it a smart look and has the additional benefits of ensuring that bikes will stay out of direct sunlight. As ever, the result is not just the product we installed but the opportunity it gives to students at Jesus College, University of Cambridge. Students can now ride their bikes to college, safe in the knowledge that it would take a small earthquake to cause the Cyclo City any issues.
Our Cyclo City range of cycle shelters has always been popular because it is the antidote to the huge number of flimsy cycle shelters coming onto the market. We offer the highest quality product, using a robust 120mm x 80mm steel frame that will keep your bicycles safe for a very long time. To find out more just take a look at our Cyclo City range online and if you have any questions, get in touch.
When Lindum Group called in A&S Landscape it was for the expert installation of a high quality entrance canopy, something to frame the building and bring it to life a little. They weren’t looking for anything huge, but they were definitely looking for a professional and aesthetically pleasing cover system.
Working with Lindum Group we installed a Motiva Duo duopitch (symmetric) curved roof canopy at a size of 4800mm x 3200mm. This small entrance canopy packs a punch managing rainwater with Alu Tuff™ guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-Coat™ colour paintwork. The steelwork finished in a Moss Green colour (RAL6005) looks fantastic and the clear roofing gives it a really modern feel and allows natural light to shine through.
The result is a small job that was completed beautifully. Both Lindum Group and North Witchford Lodge were delighted with the work undertaken. If there is a problem to be solved then our specialist team can definitely deliver you tailored solutions.
Big or small, the entrance canopy design you choose should do exactly what you need it to do. We have options that range from the attractive but practical to effective yet stunning and you can see a range of those options in our gallery here. If you want to talk to our design team, they’ll be happy to work with you to produce the best possible shelter to meet your needs and thanks to their broad knowledge.
Two straight roof canopies were built next to the school buildings. The Motiva Linear canopies both feature clear polycarbonate roofing and a modern grey steelwork finish. A fabric shade sail was also installed. The school chose a Sky-Blue fabric colour for the Maxima Sail, which works perfectly with the surrounding buildings and outdoor space.
Now the students of Jack Hunt School have ample options when the conditions are bad. The straight roof canopies can be used before lessons start or during lunchtimes. There is also plenty of space under the shade sail for seating, if the students want to eat outside. A&S Landscape offers a range of fabric and steel and polycarbonate roof canopies. Our friendly team can help you choose the best canopy from our product range for your requirements. Call us today on 01743 444100 to experience our quality service.
The Maxima StarSail™ is an imaginative and striking design that does as much for the overall look of a play area as it does to protect from direct sunlight. We installed two Maxima Star Sails at Sacred Heart Catholic School to a size of 4000mm x 4000mm each. Both were finished in a grey (RAL 7000) steelwork with attractive aquatic blue fabric. Whilst the Maxima StarSail™ offers a high level of sun and rain protection, creating large areas of shade, that’s not the only thing it does. By adding to the variety of shapes and silhouettes in the large open play area, Sacred Heart continues to inspire their pupil’s imagination every single playtime.
The Maxima StarSail™ is one of our most popular covered options because of the way it marries form and function. Whether you are looking for a little extra protection from the elements or an imaginative and playful outdoor seating area the Maxima Star Sail will add tremendous value. You can find out more by looking at a gallery of finished projects here.
A&S Landscape installed a straight roof canopy at the school, measuring 7160mm X 6000mm. The Motiva Linear is finished was Slate Grey steelwork, which complements the surrounding area perfectly. Moondust and Opal polycarbonate sheets were used in the roof, creating a subtle and sleek design pattern, while the effective shade allows a safe level of natural light through.
Everyone at St Bede’s Inter-Church School is thrilled with the new shelter. The students have an area outside they can use all-year-round, no matter the weather conditions. This space could be used to socialise, study and relax out in the fresh air as the shelter provides great rain protection. In fact, the school are so happy, they awarded us five stars for our work.

Working alongside our building contractor client our team constructed a straight polycarbonate roof canopy in Kings Cliffe Primary School, Kings Cliffe, Peterborough. The contract included the supply and installation of one Motiva™ monopitch straight roof canopy measuring 21000mm X 5000mm with Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes which were coated in a matching Dura-coat™ colour finish and two post protection pads.
A shade sail was installed at the campus, measuring 6m X 6m. The Maxima StarSail features blue steelwork and a yellow fabric roof and works well with the surrounding architecture. Made with waterproof PVC material, the sail can provide protection against the rain. The finished product has been a huge success at the City College Peterborough. Now the students have an area to shelter from the weather, which is stylish as well as practical. The StarSail has major purpose as it can be used as a social space, where the students can gather at breaks to relax, revise and refresh.

Located on Park Lane in Peterborough, St John Fisher Catholic High School had already installed a tensile canopy system on their campus. Providing much-needed shade in the summer months, the shelter was very much a popular fixture on the school ground. So, when it came to maintenance, there was no question that the investment would be made.
At A&S Landscape, our job is to provide solutions to the challenges that organisations face when it comes to creating additional sheltered space. We deliver high-quality products that will last a long, long time. While St John Fisher Catholic High School already had the basis of their sun shelter in place, we were still able to help them to revamp the area with a brand-new shade sail cover.
Our Maxima Sail™ range is the perfect solution for creating a fabulous, eye-catching sail canvas design. Maxima Sail™ canopies can be configured in innumerable shapes and sizes. So, not only were we able to offer St John Fisher Catholic High School a whole palate of shade cloth colours to choose from, but we were able to help them to create a beautiful design. Their design was finished in Chino Cream fabric which looks fabulous whatever the weather but looks particularly eye-catching on a hot sunny day with a bright blue sky above.
