Penketh High School in Warrington Add Covered Outdoor Dining Area
Gwersyllt Community Primary School wanted the pupils to spend as much time outside during break times as possible. To make the playgrounds more accessible, the school decided to add multiple areas of shelter and shade.
Slate Grey - RAL NO. 7015
A&S Landscape installed three straight roof canopies around the school site. Each Motiva Linear features subtle slate grey steelwork, which works perfectly with the surrounding buildings. The opal polycarbonate roofing also provides protection from UV rays, while letting some sunlight through.
The pupils now have a great choice of where to play during their breaks. If they need to shelter from the rain, wind or sun they can gather underneath one of the three shelters. Because the pupils can spend more time outside in the fresh air, they have the chance to refresh properly before their next lessons.
The teachers can also use the canopies during lessons to take their classes outside without having to worry about the weather. What’s more, is that at the end of the school day the parents can wait under the shelters for their children too. Plus, Gwersyllt Community Primary School could store equipment outside under the shade to save space inside. We also worked with many other schools in Wrexham, including Darland High School where we installed a fabric tepee canopy.
For students, different environments can motivate and excite, causing an increased capability to pick up new information. At a young age, standard classrooms can provide little stimulation for students and educational growth can become limited. By exploring the use of outdoor teaching, children can find novel and refreshing ways of learning. Fresh air, and the ability to teach in a much larger space, can open up new doors to the manner that lessons are taught and the work which can be performed.
