Weaverham High School wanted to create a space outside for the students to socialise in, all-year-round. A&S Landscape worked with the Student Council to create a design that met all their requirements.
A Maxima Umbrella canopy was installed at the campus, measuring 5m X 5m. The single upright is finished in a subtle Slate Grey colour, which works well with the Olive fabric roof. Made with a PVC waterproof material, the school can use the umbrella in all weather conditions. A&S Landscape’s team fitted the structure during term-time safely and efficiently.
The students love their new shaded area and it has quickly become a very popular place during break times. Come rain or shine, they can gather underneath the cover to shelter from the elements while enjoying some fresh air. During exam periods, we’re sure this could be the perfect spot to relax and unwind too. The students can also eat their lunch outside under the shelter, relieving pressure from the dining hall facilities.
It’s great that Weaverham High School recognised the importance of providing a sheltered space outside. And we think it’s fantastic that the students had such a huge part in the decision-making process, giving them ownership of the project.
