There are so many different school canopy designs to choose from. George Mitchell School were delighted to work with A&S Landscape to run through the benefits of each one. Eventually, they decided to install two canopies from the Maxima range, one Umbrella 4m x 4m and one Tepee 3m x 3m. Both canopies benefitted from PVC fabric which is waterproof to provide all-year-round shelter. There are many fabric colours to choose from and in this case, they opted for Beige and Aniseed against White (RAL 9010) steelwork. Both structures were finished with Amber post pads for optimal protection.
The playground looks very smart with the new canopies. The children can use them all year round for an endless number of different activities, including outdoor play. They may choose to have a story safe from the sunshine or games at break times, even a picnic. Children have such a vivid imagination, they may even become spaceships or rockets, who knows!

In collaboration with our building contractor client A&S erected a straight polycarbonate roof canopy in Dronfield Co-Op Dronfield, Derbyshire. The job involved the supply and installation of one Motiva™ monopitch straight roof canopy measuring 17600mm X 2800mm and included for our Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-coat™ colour finish.
A Covered MUGA™ was installed at Zaytouna Primary School, which has provided them with a valuable sheltered area. A Motiva Linear canopy was also built at the school, featuring a multicoloured polycarbonate roof.
Now the pupils can play outside throughout the year, no matter the weather. The Covered MUGA™ is ideal for sports games and has plenty of room for the children. And the multicoloured straight roof polycarbonate canopy adds a splash of colour to the school site while providing a sheltered play area. Teachers also have the option to hold lessons outside, without having to worry about the weather thanks to the straight roof canopy. The two new canopies have been a great addition to the primary school.
From universities to nurseries, A&S Landscape offers a range of canopies for a variety of uses, from cycle shelters to entrance canopies. Look at examples of our past canopy installations on our projects page or our gallery.
A&S built a waterproof sail structure at Arboretum Primary School Derby, Derbyshire. The job involved one 6000mm x 6000mm Maxima™ tensile waterproof fabric sail structure comprising of one square sail on four uprights including for all stainless steel fixtures and fittings and four post protection pads.
The entrance canopy that was chosen was from our Motiva Entro™ range. This curved roof canopy is steel and polycarbonate. Gutters and downpipes were included in a matching finish to the steelwork to make sure that it added a clean, modern aesthetic. The entrance canopy benefited from glazed side panels as well to really protect from the weather. The canopy measured 2800mm x 1200 and the steel was Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) whilst the polycarbonate roofing was Opal.
The entrance is now clearly distinguishable, protected from the weather and complements the new building beautifully. Rainwater is effectively managed by gutters and downpipes and it looks great too. Ripley Academy are very fortunate to have such a tremendous school and we hope that they enjoy learning and socialising in their new campus areas for many years to come.

We designed a straight polycarbonate roof canopy at William Gilbert CE Endowed Primary School Duffield, Belper, Derbyshire. The contract included the supply and installation of one Motiva™ monopitch straight roof canopy measuring 5900mm X 4700mm and included for our Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes which were coated in a matching Dura-coat™ colour finish.
In combination with our contractor client A&S created an entrance canopy in Bishops Lonsdale St Albans Road, Derbyshire. The full contract involved one Motiva™ Entro curved roof canopy measuring 3000mm X 2500mm and included for our Alu-Tuff™ aluminium box profile guttering and downpipes which were coated in a matching Dura-coat™ colour finish.
The Pingle Academy in Swadlincote, Derbyshire had the wonderful idea of creating two sheltered dining and social areas outdoors, in order to reduce pressure on their indoor dining hall. This thoughtful institution – which is a popular local choice for secondary and post-16 education – wanted the canopies to be cost-effective to suit their budget, have attractive designs, and add value to their students’ days. The school contacted A&S Landscape, who was thrilled to provide them with some shelter solutions.
After considering their options, The Pingle Academy decided that two Motiva Duo™ canopies would best suit their needs. One was built to measure 18000mm X 8000mm to provide ample space for dining, and the other was installed in the internal quad along with 24 recycled plastic picnic benches. The Motiva Duo™ was an excellent choice for the social and dining areas; the curved roofs look stylish and offer protection from the elements so students can eat and relax beneath them all year round. Staff were happy with how these shelters fit into their budget and they chose Slate Grey steelwork and Opal roofs to give them a modern feel.
The Pingle Academy loves the dining and social shelters, and everyone appreciates having more space to eat and socialise during break times. They could even be used as outdoor classroom buildings! A&S Landscape was delighted to add this project to their successful work with schools. If you’d like to know more about our products or services, call us on 01743 444100 today.
The curved roof canopy has been installed along the school building, measuring 10000 x 3550 mm. Almost creating a classroom extension. The canopy is one from our Motiva Cantilever range, with bright Red (RAL 3020) steelwork and Opal roof panels. When space is at a premium and even when it isn’t, using outdoor areas effectively makes sense. Not only can children do activities outside, but they can also play outside on rainy days, where before it would have been ‘indoor play’. We are sure that you’ll agree, this is much better!

The requirement for shade and shelter for this super space was what drove Hasland Junior School to A&S Landscape. The school added not one but two canopies to their playground, both fabric canopies from the Maxima range. The first tensile waterproof fabric sail structure was a hexagonal Shade Sail which has created a lovely outdoor classroom. The second waterproof sail structure, an Umbrella canopy, 4m x 4m, in matching Yellow (RAL 1003) steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering, and Victoria Blue PVC fabric. The waterproof fabric ensured that the areas were sheltered and shaded all year round.
Hasland Junior School now has a lovely outdoor space to be proud of. Their children have areas which they can use on the hottest or wettest days of the year as a play area or dining canopy. They have options for outside lessons, storytimes, snack times or just chatting times. We all know how happy kids are to be outside so the children at this school are very fortunate to have so many spaces to enjoy.

A&S Landscape added a smart new shelter using a Motiva Linear straight polycarbonate roof canopy, installed at 6500mm x 4393mm, with Alu-Tuff™ (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in a matching Dura-coat™ finish.
The straight roof shelter has resulted in a covered area which works as an extension to the classroom for the children at Fritchley Primary School. They can now play in the sand, draw, paint and play to their heart’s content without being rained off. Hooray, no more need for excited children to play indoors at rainy playtimes, phew!

Bemrose Primary School came to A&S Landscape, who specialises in school canopies. We have an extensive range of products and were glad to talk through the options.

Bemrose Primary School liked the Maxima Tepee canopy and installed it in Green waterproof fabric with Mid Blue steelwork.
Now the children have a smart Tepee canopy, measuring 6000mm x 6000mm in their playground. They could gather here for stories, have the occasional lesson, enjoy lunchtimes and playtimes with their friends. The options are endless, what a lovely way to add some extra space to your school. Even in sunny or rainy weather, the children can still get outside to enjoy some fresh air thanks to the tensile waterproof fabric sail structure.

Ashbourne Hilltop Primary and Nursery School in Ashbourne, Derbyshire wanted a shelter that could open up opportunities for playtimes, outdoor learning and storage all year round, in rain or shine. This caring institution – which aims to be ‘a school that plays a full role in the life of the community’ – needed the canopy to add colour to their outdoor facilities and something special to their pupils’ educational experience.
After discussing several products with A&S Landscape, Ashbourne Hilltop Primary and Nursery School decided that the Motiva Linear™ was the right model for them. They had their shelter installed with clear sides and a wheelchair-accessible threshold to create an enclosed area that everyone could easily enjoy. The monopitch (asymmetric) straight roof of the Motiva Linear™ offered maximum protection from the elements, while the Flame Red steelwork and Opal polycarbonate sheeting created a bright, fun design. Measuring 14500mm X 4300mm, the canopy was large enough to be used for play, additional storage or even as an outdoor classroom gazebo.
The team at Ashbourne Hilltop Primary and Nursery School was thrilled with the outdoor shelter. It can adapt to their needs and provides them with an extra educational or play facility throughout the year. The pupils love the colourful design which makes for an inspiring play area.

With weather that is so unpredictable, we have to be able to be flexible, creating spaces that allow us to remain outside even when the weather changes direction. With outdoor playground canopies, you can do just that, uniting outdoor spaces with a mix of covered and open areas that mean if the grey clouds roll in you need only move an activity under an outdoor canopy to continue.
Mary Swanwick Primary School liked the idea of being flexible in the face of the unpredictable conditions so they called in A&S Landscape to make it happen. We installed a generous Motiva Linear straight roof canopy at 10000mm x 3750mm in a bright, playful red steelwork with Alu-Tuff ™ box profile guttering to match in Dura-Coat™ paint. The Opal polycarbonate roof used on this straight roof shelter, means this is also an effective shade in the summer, cutting out a layer of direct sunlight and offering a little temperature control to the building as well.
The result is that the weather is no longer in control of an activity. Mary Swanwick Primary School has an effective shelter that allows learning and play to continue whatever falls from the sky. If you want to make sure you’re ready, no matter what the weather does, then you need to ensure your outdoor spaces are as flexible as those at Mary Swanwick Primary School. All it takes is the addition of an outdoor canopy for schools that will ensure that the outside is as accessible as the inside, all year round.
