Bickleigh Down Church of England Primary School in Devon Add Curved Roof Canopy
The staff and pupils at Ark Victoria Academy adore the break time canopy. It is a real statement piece which demonstrates its dedication to its pupils, increasing day-to-day enjoyment at the school and improving facilities. The children now have an exciting new area where they can spend their break times.
Ark Victoria Academy in Birmingham wanted to install a canopy to shelter the children at break times. The staff were looking for a product that would inspire the pupils and bring cheer to the outdoor space with a colourful design, as well as be long enough to run alongside the school building for easy access, and be robust enough to withstand bad weather. They got in touch with A&S Landscape, who was pleased to be chosen to tackle this project and soon got to work on figuring out the right way to proceed.
We discussed a couple of options with Ark Victoria Academy and, under our guidance, the team decided to add a Motiva Linear™ to their facilities. This model is very popular with schools because its monopitch, asymmetric design where one side is higher than the other allows it to become many different types of canopy and effectively keep children out of the wind and rain. The staff at the school chose Ultramarine Blue steelwork and a multicoloured roof to brighten up the area and encourage the pupils’ creativity. Plus, we installed the shelter with 28280mm X 4000mm specifications, so there was plenty of room for the children to play or hang out with friends undercover during breaks from lessons, right by the building.
The staff and pupils at Ark Victoria Academy adore the break time canopy. It is a real statement piece which demonstrates its dedication to its pupils, increasing day-to-day enjoyment at the school and improving facilities. The children now have an exciting new area where they can spend their break times, and they can play, socialise or eat in the fresh air throughout the year. The multicoloured roof looks stunning in the sunlight, creates a cheerful atmosphere on grey days and easily withstands the unpredictable British weather! A&S Landscape loved this school’s reaction to their finished custom canopy and wouldn’t hesitate to provide them with another in the future, should they have need of one.

Those at the school follow the Six Pillars, which are underlying principles that help them to achieve their mission – high expectations, excellent teaching, exemplary behaviour, depth before breadth, knowing every child and always learning. We enjoyed working with the passionate staff and hope that our canopy will bring them joy for many years to come.

Scientists have discovered that colours can make people feel a variety of emotions – this is called colour psychology. It can be useful to consider this when picking the design of your shelter, as applying colour psychology can influence your pupils’ mood and help you to aid their learning. Here are just a few examples:
Why not put some of this knowledge to use by designing your canopy with this in mind? If you’re installing an outdoor classroom shelter, you might want to consider orange to help pupils stay focused. Alternatively, a blue canopy might suit an undercover relaxation area. Multicoloured roof canopies are perfect for playground shelters as they combine several colours to make them fun and exciting places to play in!
