The Austen Academy in Hampshire Add New School Canopies
Due to a period of growth, Whitecross High School discovered the need for additional space for students during lunchtime. A&S Landscape worked closely with the school to design, manufacture and install a bespoke canopy.
Basalt Grey - RAL 7012
A bespoke Motiva steel and polycarbonate dining canopy structure now provides the school with a valuable outdoor dining space. The Opal roofing allows sunlight through while providing protection against UV rays. What’s more, is that a side of glass panels was also added to the canopy to give students extra shelter from the elements. Whitecross High School, in Herefordshire, chose a modern Iron Grey RAL colour for the framework, which works perfectly with the surrounding buildings.
The area can be used by the students to eat, relax, socialise and refresh before their afternoon lessons. Giving students the opportunity to spend time outdoors is important for several reasons and can have a positive impact on the entire school. This bespoke canopy allows the students to enjoy the fresh air throughout the year, come rain or shine. Whitecross High School successfully found a cost-effective solution to their problem, without having to build a formal building. We’ve also installed other school canopies in Herefordshire, at Ledbury Primary School and St Peter’s Primary School.
Thanks to our design, manufacturing and installation process we create bespoke canopies to suit specific requirements. We can accommodate your specific preferences, as we can manufacture to any given dimension. We can also make our Maxima products bespoke to your needs, from Shade Sails to Umbrellas. Take a look at our gallery to get inspiration for your next project, or see how we can take your idea from concept to completion.
There are a variety of established benefits to eating outside as a part of the school day. As pupils spend the whole day in a classroom environment, it is integral that they are given time to breathe at lunchtime. In spending this break outside, it not only provides a calming environment but can also reduce levels of hyperactivity in a pupil. If a student is forced to occupy their break indoors, it can emulate the classroom setting and prevent them from taking a suitable amount of time to relax. Eating outdoors is also a really sociable activity, unrestricted by the dining hall setting students can speak with other year groups easily.
