Secure Covered Area at St Cuthbert’s School in Wigan

St Cuthbert’s Catholic Primary School is a modern voluntary aided Roman Catholic Primary School in the Norley Hall area of Wigan. Succeeding where others had failed, A&S Landscape is proud to have satisfied the school’s brief for an aesthetically pleasing large secure covered area.

Project Specification

Working with well-respected Architects E C Harris we were pleased to be able to offer our design expertise early in the planning stage providing several alternatives including photorealistic visualisation and cost options for the client’s perusal.

The final design is a statement in itself with the curved roof sweeping up from the school to create a feeling of space within the area.

Based on our standard Motiva design and with additional design features the canopy benefits from 2 No 5.2 metre roller shutter doors giving the area the added value of 24/7 security. During this project at St Cuthbert’s School, we were pleased to work with the main contractor assisting with foundation detail and setting out and working to tight timescales the project was successfully delivered in time for the new school term.

How outdoor classrooms can be used to create more space at schools and how they benefit children?

Schools increasingly need to obtain more space to teach pupils either as a class or in smaller focus groups. Instead of looking inside, there is more often than not unused space outside a school.

Outdoor classrooms can not only offer key space but also an inspiring learning area for students and teachers alike. This change of setting can encourage better concentration and revive fascination in a subject matter. Even the biggest of outdoors spaces will need to be fitted out with some necessities if they are to be used for outdoor classrooms.
