Enclosed Dining Shelter Purchased by Wednesfield High Academy in Wednesfield
Wednesfield High Academy in Wednesfield wanted a dining canopy so they could create somewhere new outdoors for students to enjoy break times. They required something unique and exciting – a bespoke, fully enclosed model with lighting, heating, side panels and doors so it could be a year-round asset to the school, which has the motto ‘Changing Lives, Shaping Futures’. The shelter also needed to be large enough to ease pressure on indoor dining facilities. We were thrilled when the team got in touch.
There were several avenues to choose from but the University of Wolverhampton Wednesfield Academy eventually settled on a beautiful, enclosed, bespoke Motiva Linear™. Bespoke Motiva shelters are available in hundreds of configurations, so they’re ideal for clients looking for something that can be adapted to suit their needs. We built the canopy to measure 40960mm X 7588mm to make long lunchtime queues a thing of the past, and added Slate Grey steelwork in a matt finish and an Opal roof for a modern look. It was the perfect place for everyone to spend breaks in comfort in all weathers, thanks to the installation of side panels, doors, lighting and heating.
Wednesfield High Academy adores the dining shelter; no one has to worry about stretched services at lunchtime anymore, as students can eat outside undercover in the fully enclosed structure. The heating definitely comes in handy in cold and rainy weather! If you want to hear more about our bespoke shelter solutions, call us on 01743 444100 today.
Multicoloured Playground Canopy at Old Church C of E Primary School in Walsall
A multicoloured polycarbonate canopy was installed in the playground, measuring a total of 11100mm X 5100mm. Mint, Violet, Daffodil, Foxglove, Mandarin, Poppy and Lagoon polycarbonate sheet colours were all used, creating a joyful effect. The Mid Blue steelwork on the Motiva Linear complements the roofing perfectly, as well as the surrounding environment.
All the pupils of Old Church C of E Primary School love the new canopy and it has quickly become a popular place at break times. Even when the weather is poor, the pupils can play outside in the fresh air and let off some steam. The polycarbonate roofing also provides protection against UV rays, so the space can be used throughout the hot summer months too.

Pair of Modern Shade Sails At Green Park School in Bilston
Green Park School in Bilston wanted to install a pair of shade sails so their pupils could enjoy time outside all year round. The team thought that they should be durable, look modern and appealing, and provide great protection from both sun and rain. They got in touch with A&S Landscape, who had a range of products available for them to choose from.
After much deliberation, Green Park School decided on the Maxima StarSail™. This versatile model met their needs, thanks to its trendy, robust design and the fact that it has the longest guarantees in the market. The combination of Champagne fabric roofs and Squirrel Grey steelwork provided a contemporary feel and complemented the school buildings. Also, the two shelters were built to measure 7000mm X 7000mm, which offered excellent coverage in any weather for pupils playing or eating beneath them.
Green Park School loves the new shade sails. The children can now spend more time in the fresh air, even if it’s raining, and the shelters are versatile enough to even be used for activities like outdoor learning. The staff at the institution – which provides ‘access to high quality education and learning experiences, both in school and in the community’ – think that the shade sails are an excellent asset to their facilities.

A range of our clients based in the West Midlands
Dining Area Canopy Designed for The Avon Valley School in Rugby
The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College is located in the West Midlands town of Rugby. This frequently over-subscribed school is ever-popular, particularly amongst children wanting to pursue dancing, singing or music.
The fact that the school is so popular means that its facilities were often placed under pressure. This was especially true of their catering services, which operates food provision three times a day. As a result, the school wanted to create additional capacity to support their dining facilities. A&S Landscape worked with the school to scope out plans for a Motiva Linear™ custom canopy with additional waterproof side panels which were created utilising unbreakable glazing.
The Motiva Linear™ model has a monopitch straight roofline with a solid steel canopy structure. This product is a fantastic choice for use as either a door canopy or as a free standing canopy for uses such as covered dining areas, playground shelters or cycle shelters.
In designing any project such as that for The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College, our team will take account of specific design features, such as school logo colours and existing infrastructure and how the new structure will fit in. We offer a full-colour palette of steel and polycarbonate colours that enable each design to result in a tailored custom canopy.
Covered Play Area at Mereside Farm Children’s Nursery in Solihull
The nursery decided on a Motiva Cantilever straight roof canopy. This shelter is a variant from the Motiva canopy and is ideal for play areas. The subtle grey steelwork works well with the surrounding buildings to create a modern, stylish aesthetic. Mereside Farm Children’s Nursery opted for Opal roofing, which offers essential protection for the young children against UV rays. Measuring 7000mm X 3000mm, there is plenty of room underneath the straight polycarbonate roof canopy for a range of activities.
The finished canopy has met all of Mereside Farm Children’s Nursery’s expectations. The young children can play freely outside, no matter the weather. Staff now also have the option to hold lessons away from the classroom, offering an alternative outdoor learning experience.
A&S Landscape, canopy installation experts, offers this Cantilever canopy as Duo, Linear, Mono or Wave variants. Why not view our extensive gallery of covered options to get inspiration for your next project or contact us today.
Covered Waiting Area at Park Gate Primary School in Coventry
A freestanding curved roof canopy was installed on an area on the school grounds. The Motiva Duo™ measures 8000mm X 2500mm, so there is plenty of space for many people to stand under at once. The Signal Green steelwork gives the school a splash of colour, and the Opal polycarbonate roofing offers protection from UV rays.
At the end of the day the parents can now wait under a shelter, protected from the elements. From the cold wind to the hot sun the canopy will ensure the parents are dry and cool while they wait for their children. Park Gate Primary School was so happy with their new canopy that they awarded A&S Landscape five out of five stars.

Outdoor Dining Shade Sails Installed at Finham School in Coventry
When A&S Landscape was asked to add some effective shade in an outdoor seating area at Finham School in Coventry, it wasn’t just about shade, it was about identity.
We installed three Maxima Umbrellas™ to a size of 3000mm x 3000mm each. Together they offer a smart and attractive pool of shade in the hot summer months but also carry on a bold and stylish colour scheme. With dark grey steelwork (RAL 7015) and light blue ‘Lagoon’ fabric, these Maxima Umbrellas pick out a colour that is seen beautifully in the surrounding buildings.
The result is a smart and confident space, one that has been built with respect and will be treated with respect in return. Because that’s something we do as people. Whether it be people or places, a confident self-image will generate the same kind of relationship as it projects.
Confident space means confident design. A&S Landscape knows this, which is why we have a huge range of colours so that you can create an environment that is brimming with identity. Take a look at our full range of colours and at a gallery of finished projects.
Play Area Cover Added to Corbett Primary School in Stourbridge
A straight roof canopy was installed in the playground, measuring 5m X 4m. Because of the limited space, three of the posts were fixed to the walls of the surrounding building. The Traffic Red coloured steelwork gives the Motiva Linear™ a pop of colour and works well with the Opal polycarbonate roofing.
The pupils and staff of Corbett Primary School are delighted with the shelter. Now more break times can be spent outside in the fresh air, come rain or shine. Teachers can also use the canopy to take their lessons in an alternative environment – what a fun class that would be! At the end of the school day, the parents could stand under the cover if the conditions were poor too.

Innovative Shade Sail Added to Wilkinson Primary School in Bilston
Wilkinson Primary School in Bilston in the West Midlands wanted to combine their idea of making a willow Viking longboat with a shelter to create a covered outdoor space for learning and playtime. This school designs its curriculum to provide children with new and exciting experiences, and they thought that a shade sail could be used both as protection from the elements – for the boat and the pupils – and as a sail for the longboat! The school contacted A&S Landscape to help them realise this and they thought that it was a brilliant project.
A&S Landscape provided Wilkinson Primary School with a Maxima Sail™. The staff chose this shade sail because of its versatility, its waterproof roof which could shield everything underneath from the rain, and its stunning design. It was installed with Grey steelwork, a Poppy fabric sail and measurements of 6000mm X 6000mm – perfect for creating the longboat’s sail. It also meant that the area could be a great place for play and it offered lots of outdoor classroom ideas.
The pupils and teachers of Wilkinson Primary School were thrilled with their brand new shelter. It looks striking and colourful, works amazingly well as a longboat sail and covered outdoor learning area, and shows how fabric canopies can be applied to many different needs and creative ideas. Interested in installing a shade sail at your school? Call us on 01743 444100 to find out more.
Christ Church C of E Primary School in Oldbury Add Playground Shelter
A&S Landscape installed a straight roof shelter at the school from the Motiva range.

The Opal polycarbonate roofing also blocks harmful UV rays, while allowing a safe level of sunlight through. The pupils of Christ Church C of E Primary School love the new playground canopy and it has already been a very popular addition. If the weather conditions are poor, they can play under the cover protected from the elements. The school’s great play equipment can also be stored under the shelter, saving space inside the buildings.

Purple Frame Shelter Fitted at Rushall Primary School
So, when Rushall Primary School in the West Midlands contacted us we were able to work alongside a contractor they already had in place to provide the missing piece in their design puzzle. Putting together a series of bright, wide canopies that linked buildings together, this contractor was so impressed with our S60 roofing system that despite already manufacturing the steelwork themselves, they wanted to work with A&S to implement our strong, attractive polycarbonate roofing and steel guttering within their design.
Providing a link between buildings mean that staff and students can stay dry and comfortable on wet days and they can do that because of the great relationship we formed with an excellent contractor. The bright and playful purple steelwork works wonderfully with our S60 roofing system and shows just how adaptable our design work really is.

Ryders Green Primary School Add Fabric Umbrella Shade Canopy in West Bromwich
A&S Landscape worked closely with the team at Ryders Green Primary School and agreed on a Maxima Umbrella™ with White (RAL 9010) steelwork and a lovely bright Raspberry Red fabric. The umbrella stands on a single post, allowing maximum space underneath for the children. Not just shade from the sun, but shelter from the rain as well. Perfect!
The playground has a lovey new school canopy which adds a smart design feature to the outside space. The steelwork is bright white and contrasts with the Raspberry Red fabric. The children like the new umbrella and use it in a variety of ways. Everyone is pleased with the umbrella and Ryders Green are working with A&S Landscape on another canopy project which will be installed in the very near future.

Brownhills School in Walsall Add Dining Area Shelter
Brownhills School had a rather unloved outdoor courtyard area which had no shelter. This meant that it couldn’t be used all year round. A&S Landscape can offer a broad range of canopies and were consulted to come up with designs to cover the area. A Duo canopy from the Motiva range was selected and installed at 12202mm x 9976mm. The large canopy has Alu-Tuff™ (aluminium box profile) guttering and downpipes in matching mid-blue Dura-coat™ and the roofing was opal polycarbonate.
The courtyard area is now used by many more pupils as it has created an outdoor dining space. The new tables mean that children are more likely to sit and eat together as well as sit and socialise at break times. What was a bleak space with no purpose has been transformed into a delightful dining area which offers shade in the hot months and shelter in the wet months. What a lovely new space for the children to enjoy. All without the need for a permanent extension. We think this is a stylish and cost-effective solution to a need for more dining space.
A&S Landscape has a broad range of shade and shelter products. You can review our gallery of school canopies if you would like some inspiration. It contains over a thousand pictures of our work.

Salisbury Primary School, in Walsall, West Midlands were very impressed by our work with other local schools and were keen to join in with the fun. Having visited one of our colourful canopies they loved the magic of the rainbow roof and thought it would look amazing in their playground!
The Early Years Leader got in touch to talk through their requirements, the staff wanted to cover enough of the playground to enable outdoor play all year round whilst also keeping some of the area open, the team at A & S Landscape suggested a 12000mm x 4000mm canopy and worked on some drawings to provide a visual example of how it would look in situ. The Motiva Linear™ design worked really well in the area and flexibility as to where the posts were positioned meant the access ramp could still be fully utilised.

Pair of Shade Sails Added to Grounds at Whitley Academy in Coventry
Whitley Academy in Coventry was searching for two shade sails to cover its picnic area and make it usable year-round. The staff at the school – which builds meaningful relationships based on trust and respect – wanted the canopies to be colourful and exciting to refresh the outdoor areas, as well as have waterproof roofs to ensure everyone beneath them would stay dry in the rain. They really liked some of our designs, so they chose us to manufacture their shelters.
The shade sail they loved best was our Maxima StarSail™, so we installed two models measuring 5000mm X 5000mm at Whitley Academy. This was an excellent choice to bring something new to the facilities outdoors, because the Maxima StarSail™ has an innovative design that comes in many wonderful colours. Waterproof Buttercup roofs brightened the space while keeping out the rain, alongside smart Slate Grey steelwork.

Whitley Academy and everyone in its community make great use of the new shade sails. The picnic area is now a great place for the children to relax between lessons, chat with friends or enjoy a bite to eat at break times undercover – even if the weather is a little damp. The bright designs have brought the outside space to life and they impress newcomers to the school. If you want to find out more about our shelter solutions, call us on 01743 444100 today.
Multicoloured Polycarbonate Roof Canopies Designed for Old Church Primary School in Walsall
Returning customers Old Church C of E Primary School in Walsall, the West Midlands, had a new proposal for a multiple canopy project for their school grounds. Having already had their playground beautifully transformed by the team at A&S Landscape, they did not hesitate to get in touch with the experienced team to talk through their plans.
They required two multicoloured roof canopies – both extensions to year group cloakrooms – and a free standing canopy to cover the courtyard. The two colourful canopies were built to the same design as the previous shelter, both of the straight-roof, monopitch Motiva Linear™ design, and completed with a colourful polycarbonate roof. These canopies also benefited from additional side panels to three sides, with one of the shelters also having an external door fitted. The third canopy – the free standing canopy – was built with a curved-roof, Motiva Duo™ design, completed with an opal roof.
This West Midlands primary school has successfully allowed for plentiful space for the children to play, enjoy fresh air, and appreciate the outdoors in a safe way. Even in wet conditions, the canopies mean there is a reduced risk of slipping when running around – yet there are no limitations to a child’s imagination! All in all, the canopy project has transformed the children’s school day.
