Jack Hunt School in Peterborough Add Shade Sail and Straight Roof Canopies

The students at Jack Hunt School didn’t have many options at lunchtime when the weather was poor. The school decided to add several canopies to the campus to improve the existing facilities further.

Project Specification

Fabric canopies we designed for Jack Hunt SchoolTwo straight roof Motiva Linear canopies were built next to the school buildings. These shelters feature modern grey steelwork and clear polycarbonate roofing. Students can wait for their lessons under the new canopies without being exposed to the elements. They can also choose to socialise there during break and lunchtimes while enjoying the fresh air.

In addition, a stylish fabric shade sail was also installed on the campus. The Maxima Sail includes four posts finished in a grey colour and a sky blue fabric cover. There is plenty of room underneath the shelter for students to enjoy their lunch alfresco, leaving them refreshed and ready for the afternoon.

Teachers now also have the option to hold lessons outside under the canopies. This alternative learning environment will help to engage the class and staff won’t have to make plans around the weather. It’s true to say that the new canopies will positively impact everyone at Jack Hunt School.

How can learning outside help children with their academic performance and how can schools facilitate this?

Classrooms have long been the setting of choice for the majority of schools, but the benefits of outdoor learning are speedily being discovered. You could potentially think that it’s not accomplishable, especially with the changeable British weather, but with a canopy, teaching outdoors can become a reality. With various configurations available for numerous applications, any school can install a shelter to convert any outdoor space into a new form of classroom.
