Westminster Primary Academy in Blackpool Add Blue Dining Canopy

Westminster Primary Academy in Blackpool were looking to add a canopy to their outdoor area that could function as an outdoor classroom for a minimum of thirty students. The school were flexible on the design of the canopy and worked with our experts to design the best canopy for their space.

The final design consisted of our Motiva Duo™ canopy, with dimensions of 15000mm X 8000mm. The steelwork sports our Marine Blue Duracoat™ and this was paired with an Opal polycarbonate roof. The finished result is both modern and fun, and provides ample space for the children the play, learn, or eat. We hope the school continues to enjoy the Exceptional Covered Space™ for many years to come.



Outdoor Shelter in Blackpool At Blackpool Aspire Academy

Shelter we added to Blackpool Aspire AcademyOutdoor playground canopies are a wonderful solution to the problem of unpredictable weather, giving a strong, robust and long-lasting shelter that protects from the weather and offers that little extra protection when you need it most. Blackpool Aspire Academy were looking for just such a canopy and called in A&S Landscape to help out.

Installing a Motiva Linear™ monopitch straight roof canopy has had an instant impact at Blackpool Aspire Academy. At a size of 38000mm x 6000mm it covers a large area and the Signal Green steelwork and Alu Tuff guttering (RAL 6032) mean it looks fantastic. The opal roofing keeps the rain off but also protects from direct sunlight and means this shelter is useful all year round. The result is a stunning and long-lasting outdoor playground straight roof canopy that provides year-round, all weather shelter and means that students at Blackpool Aspire Academy have somewhere to hide from the elements without having to stay indoors, away from the fresh air.

Whether you’re looking to add some weatherproof playground shelters or an outdoor dining area canopy, or even some entrance canopies, A&S Landscape have a host of solutions for you. For inspiration have a look at our gallery pages here and when you’re ready get in touch with our design team who can have a proposal with you for your review.

Fabric Sail Canopies at Bleasdale School in Lancashire

Bleasdale School in Carnforth, Lancashire were keen to provide their students with access to the outdoors all year round. As a specialist SEN day school for children aged 2 – 19, the staff were committed to finding a canopy specialist to help bring their vision to life. They engaged with A&S Landscape and gave them a clear project brief, the solution should look visually appealing to complement the wonderful school grounds, whilst also being robust, hard-wearing and offer protection all year round. The team at A&S Landscape proposed the breezy and innovative Maxima StarSail™ which the staff loved immediately.

Wanting to offer as much protection as possible, they chose to have three structures, two covering 6000mm x 6000mm each and one slightly smaller at 5000mm x 5000mm. Benefitting from one central post, the Maxima StarSail™ is a very popular addition to many playgrounds, internal quads and alfresco dining areas. The school chose the subtle yet sleek Squirrel Grey (RAL 7000) for the steelwork and beautiful, bright, Lemon and Victoria Blue for the hard-wearing waterproof fabric. 

The structures look amazing amidst their leafy surroundings and are loved by staff and pupils alike. Playtime is now more fun and on the cards every day, whatever the weather! To find out more about our range of playground canopies, call our team on 01743 444100.

Expansive Outdoor Shelter Purchased by Weeton Primary School in Preston

Weeton Primary School in Preston, Lancashire wanted to create more cover outside for its pupils and believed that an outdoor canopy was the best way to do that. They had the vision of a long outdoor shelter that could extend along the length of its building and offer shelter in all sorts of British weather. This would mean that the children could play, dine and even learn outside year-round. We loved this idea and were quick to start making it a reality.

We talked the team through our ranges and individual products and the one that they picked to best meet their needs was the Motiva Linear™. This monopitch (asymmetric) straight roof variant is a common selection by schools because it comes in many different sizes and can be easily customised to fit a brief. We built the outdoor shelter to specifications of 33750mm X 4500mm so that it could run beside the building and provide excellent coverage in any season. The design also looked classic and modern with an Opal roof and Window Grey steelwork.

The new canopy is just what Weeton Primary School ordered. The measurements are perfect for the site, and now the children can sit and eat their lunch, run around and play, or even learn underneath it as an outdoor classroom shelter.

Holme Slack Community Primary School in Preston Add Canopy with Shutters

Holme Slack Community Primary School in Preston, Lancashire, were looking to add a canopy to their playground which could host outdoor learning, and be used to store playground toys and equipment when required. For this purpose, the school were exploring the option of an enclosed canopy, so that the area could be secured.


After discussing their requirements with our helpful team, the finished design was our Motiva Shutter™ canopy, featuring a Purple Red Duracoat™ and multicoloured polycarbonate roof. The design features two electrically operated shutter doors, these enable the canopy to be an open space to enjoy when the weather is pleasant or be closed up when the weather is poor.


The school have welcomed this new addition to their school, it provides a vital new area for teaching and/or storage, and adds fun pop of colour to their playground. We received great feedback on this project, and particularly our design process:

“The design process was very useful, especially the 3D drawings.”

If you are looking for a storage solution, or perhaps need an outdoor area that pupils can use all year round, get in touch today.


Blue Shade Sail Installed at Fulwood St Peter’s Primary School

Fulwood St Peter's CE Primary School Sail ShadeA&S Landscape has been working with schools for more than 40 years, helping to add the right canopy to playgrounds up and down the country. We have a wide range of canopies, from fabric to steel and polycarbonate, so we knew that we had something to fit the bill at Fulwood St Peters CE Primary School.

A&S Landscape installed an aquatic blue shade sail to the area and included four mid blue post pads to make sure that playground bumps are minimised.

Our Maxima range includes the shade sail which is available in shade cloth and waterproof fabrics. The shade cloth fabric was selected and installed in a smart Aquatic Blue colour. All our colours can be seen on our colours page if you are looking for some inspiration. The result is a smart new playground shade canopy, which does exactly what we had planned. The children now have shade in their outside area. The school now have somewhere to store their play equipment and for the children to get some fresh air, shaded from the sunshine. A lovely bright statement in the playground! The shade canopy looks striking and completes the area beautifully whilst keeping the children safe and happy in all weathers.

Fulwood St Peter’s Primary School now have an additional area outside where children can play and socialise. It can also be used for outdoor learning, working towards to recognised Ofsted criteria of learning outside the classroom. Everyone is happy.

Cycle Store with Gate Made for Fairfield Primary School

We created a cycle store in Fairfield Primary School Peelhouse Lane, Widnes, Lancashire. The full contract involved one Cyclo ‘Bike’ cycle store unit measuring 4200mm x 2400mm, which included for 5 cycle racks to accommodate 10 cycles with mesh panels to rear/side elevations and gates to front.

Weeton Country Primary School Add White Straight Roof Shelters in Preston

Weeton County Primary School CanopyAn outdoor playground canopy will extend the reach of a classroom by offering shelter from the rain that makes it accessible all-year-round. There are also certain types of activities that benefit from being run outdoors, from messy artwork to loud and entertaining music sessions. So when A&S Landscape was contacted to install some outdoor shelter at Weeton County Primary School we knew the impact it would have.

Installing generous outdoor shelters to three elevations at Weeton County Primary School meant that several classrooms were extended to have useable outdoor space. Installing Motiva Linears™ in a range of sizes, from 2870mm x 2000mm to 33700mm x 4000mm, we finished each shelter in white steelwork (RAL 9016) with Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in matching Dura-Coat™ paintwork. Opal roofing also means that direct sunlight is cut down, helping with temperature control in the classrooms during the summer.

The result is space. Space that already existed but has been repurposed to offer a useable option all year round. This gives Weeton County Primary School the opportunity to run a whole host of sessions that might have been difficult to run in the past and makes sure their children can spend more time outside in the fresh air, whatever the weather.
