Our Maxima range of covered options includes the striking Maxima StarSail™ and it was decided that this was the best product for the requirement at The Hessle Academy. Not one, not two, but three Maxima StarSails™, were installed at 8m x 8m. Each was supported by one single upright and featured waterproof fabric in a combination of sandy beige and concrete colours. All fabric colours that we supply can be seen on our colours page, where there is an interactive colour selector for you to use as you design your dream canopy!
With the addition of some fabulous furniture, the area has been transformed into a smart, modern, stylish outdoor dining space, which can be used by the children whatever the weather brings. With more options to be outdoors, the children can eat, play, chat and enjoy some fresh air in a lovely, purpose build section of their campus.
The children of The Hessle Academy have yet more well-thought-out, purpose build, cleverly designed space in which to learn, play, socialise and dine. What a lovely school they have, it was a pleasure working at The Hessle Academy and we were glad to hear that you are as happy with the new StarSails as we are. A win-win for everyone involved.

A&S Landscape was asked to add cover and shelter to a seating area at St Mary’s College. The space was commonly used by the students during their breaks, but it couldn’t be accessed when the weather conditions were poor. To enable the students to get better use out of the area, the staff decided to install a fabric shade sail.
A&S Landscape designed, manufactured and installed a Maxima Sail™ which was a stylish, yet practical addition to the area. Measuring a total of 4500mm x 6000mm, there is plenty of space underneath for the students to socialise, refresh and relax in the fresh air. To match the surrounding environment, we used a Celadon coloured fabric for the sail and a subtle Slate Grey finish for the steelwork and Alu Tuff aluminium guttering.
Now the hardworking students can get outside during their breaks, which is important for their mental health. The area could also become a very important place during stressful exam seasons when they need to get outside and enjoy some headspace. We were pleased that we got the opportunity to work with such a fantastic school and to make a difference to the student’s days.
A straight roof canopy from the Motiva range was selected and installed alongside one of the school buildings. The Motiva Linear canopy features a multicoloured polycarbonate roof, using the colours Foxglove and Lagoon. In addition, Riverside School also choose to add a fabric shade sail structure from the Maxima range.
The pupils of Riverside School now have a choice of where they can play outside, even when the conditions are poor. This allows them to relax and refresh during the school day, leaving them motivated and ready for their next lessons. Classes can also be taught outside, without the teachers having to worry about the weather thanks to the straight polycarbonate roof canopy.
A&S Landscape, canopy and shelter specialists, has worked with schools across the country, designing and installing a range of canopies, shade sails and cycle shelters. Get in touch with our friendly team today on 01743 444100.
St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Beverley, East Yorkshire wanted to cover their outdoor Early Years foundation stage area with a canopy. This caring institution that promotes children’s individuality had the idea to turn it into a space where pupils could play in any season or weather, but also wanted to add something exciting through a bright, cheerful design.
They worked with A&S Landscape to find the ideal model for their playground canopy, and they loved the variety of design options that the Motiva Linear™ provided. A straight roof shelter with polycarbonate roofing, it was able to be adapted to their 5m X 5m specifications, and many different colours were used to meet the requirement of a fun, vibrant look. The Ultramarine Blue steelwork also looks fantastic alongside the murals in the existing outdoor space.
Pupils and teachers adore their new free standing canopy; the splash of colour revitalises even rainy days, and the children can experience the benefits of outdoor play throughout the year. This project was another great example of our successful work with schools, and we loved working with the welcoming staff of St Mary’s Church of England Primary School.

Gillshill Primary School made a great decision to add a sheltered area to their school. They installed a Motiva Linear™ steel and polycarbonate canopy which stretched nearly 20 meters alongside one of their school buildings. They included three electrically operated roller shutter doors to the front elevation and glazed panels to the sides of the straight roof canopy. This has created secure storage for school playground equipment as well as a shaded and sheltered learning space for the children. The canopy is lovely and bright in yellow steelwork and Alu-Tuff guttering and the opal polycarbonate roofing lets in plenty of light whilst offering protection from UV rays.
The new school straight polycarbonate roof canopy is a lovely space which can be used for play, lessons, storage and more. Adding sides and roller shutter doors has meant that the school can use their new covered area in even more ways. If you are thinking about a similar project, take a look at our gallery which contains more than 1,000 images of canopy installations that we have completed. It is a good place to look for some inspiration. You can always contact us directly on 01743 444100 if you would like to chat through.
