It’s not enough to have those school grounds, you’ve got to make the most of them. Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School knew this, and so they wanted to do something with the space they had. They decided they wanted to put in a new outdoor dining area, so they talked to us to look at options for covered spaces. After looking through our range, they saw that the Maxima Tepee was the right fit for them. It offers a lot of coverage and looks great too, making it perfect for a dining area. It allows pupils to enjoy their lunch outdoors, without having to worry about rain. It’s become a great solution, creating more space at lunchtimes and allowing students more time outdoors. It was easier to install than a full building extension, not to mention being quicker. Read more about Queen Eleanor’s C of E Junior School’s fabric tepee shelter.
St Mary’s Catholic Primary School had an older timber canopy, that provided cover to their playground for years. However, its days were numbered and eventually it became damaged, meaning it had to be replaced. They knew we provide many different shelters, so they contacted us to help replace it. Having secured a grant to help them fund the new canopy, they could pick the one that worked best for them. They decided to go with a Motiva Linear canopy as a replacement, as it offered so many benefits to them. Being made of Marine Blue coloured steelwork, it’s going to be a lot sturdier than their old canopy. The glazed panels in the front of the canopy keep the wind out too, making play time a lot more comfortable when the pupils go outside.

No one likes to sit in a hot classroom during the summer. Tibberton Primary School were looking for a solution to help them keep the sun out of the classrooms on hot days. We helped them find the right canopy that would do just that.The school chose to install a Motiva Mono shelters outside their classrooms, as these are more than capable of providing shade to the rooms in the summer months. The curved roof looks perfect next to the building too, as if it had always been there. Plus, the red colour they chose works with the details on the front of the buildings. The school found that the canopy has really updated the look of the school, making it feel so much more exciting and welcoming to their students. Now with that shade, they won’t be stuck in hot classrooms. To learn more about Tibberton Primary School’s red curved roof shelter, click here.
Like many schools, Seahaven Academy had an outdoor space that couldn’t be used all the time. When it was sunny it was fine to use, but during wet weather pupils couldn’t enjoy it. The school recognised something needed to be done, so they looked into canopies that could help .They talked to us, and had a Motiva Linear shelter installed over the space. This canopy sits between two buildings, looking like it was always part of the structure. Now, pupils can use the space no matter what the weather is like. They’re protected from rain as well as UV rays, thanks to the Opal polycarbonate roofing. The weather is no longer a barrier to getting outside. It has given the school grounds a new lease of life. Students can play and learn under the canopy, giving the area new meaning. Read more about the straight roof shelter at Seahaven Academy, click here.
Bridlewood Primary School have a great timber decked area for their nursery aged pupils to play on, but they couldn’t use it all the time. If the weather was wet, they couldn’t go outside and play during their breaks. Plus, timber does get slippery when wet so it wasn’t ideal in these situations. Wanting to create an all weather playground, the school turned to us to see what we could do. With our help, they chose the Motiva Linear from our range of shelters. This helped them create a barrier against the rain over the play area, so the children can always go outside and play. As a bonus, the polycarbonate roof protects them against UV rays on sunny days, too. It’s given the play area a whole new lease of life, and the pupils somewhere to play no matter what.

When parents come to collect their children from school, they’re subjected to everything the weather can throw at them. That includes wind, rain, snow, and more. No one wants to be out in that weather sometimes it is unavoidable. Park Gate Primary School wanted to create a cover for their parents to wait under at home time, so they asked us to install a suitable canopy for them. They chose to use a Motiva Duo for their shelter, which had several benefits. They could choose a bright and cheerful green colour for it, and create enough space under it for all parents to wait. It’s also an attractive addition to the grounds and fits in perfectly with the other buildings on the grounds. Parents are certainly grateful that they now have cover to wait under when they’re waiting for their children. See more about the green curved roof shelter at Park Gate Primary School.
Chiswick School, located in the London borough of Hounslow, is a mixed secondary school which has a student population of over 1,200. Expectations of the students are high, with the school operating to exceptional standards. To maintain their level of excellence, it was of critical importance that the school built additional dining space to accommodate the growing number of children that were admitted to the school. The site map showed that there wasn’t enough space for all the students to eat in comfort, or without direct exposure to the weather outside. The school needed to find a solution.
Although space was tight, the school identified areas where they were able to accommodate extra dining space. Once they settled on a suitable location, they called in A&S Landscape to help with the proposed move. Working with a well-known national builder, they prepared to design, manufacture and install a quality shelter that would provide the school with the extra dining space it required.
Thanks to their outstanding durability, we decided that four large Maxima StarSail™ canopies would be the perfect fit for the school’s requirements. Each StarSail measures 8000mm x 8000mm and were placed strategically to ensure excellent protection from the weather. Sail shades are always a stylish solution thanks to the choice of coloured fabrics available, and these four were no exception. The school opted for a bright Porcelain Green colour for the waterproof shade cloth, and Grey (RAL 7000) for the Dura-coat™ finish of the steelwork. The visible area beneath the canopies was further transformed with the wonderful addition of picnic benches.
The direct impact of the canopies has been tremendous. The school has shown that even with limited possible locations in their immediate vicinity, they were able to innovate and find a solution. The canopies blend fantastically with all existing structures, and they are highly practical too. The students have taken a special interest in the new shelter system, as they are now able to socialise, eat and study without direct exposure to the elements. The outdoor dining area now firmly has a place on the site map, and the additional improvements to the campus are highly noticeable in the student’s mental health and wellbeing, who now go to lessons feeling refreshed!
Chiswick School is located in the London borough of Hounslow. With the tagline of ’empowering students to be ambitious and proud,’ the school clearly strives to see each of its students achieve to the best of their ability.
This was clear from working with the staff members too, who were highly communicative, supportive and provided us with sufficient information throughout the entire process. We are incredibly pleased to have provided a suitable alternative location for students to sit at lunchtimes, one that will endure even through times of inclement weather.
As well as standard design canopies, A&S Landscape has a popular range of cycle storage solutions that are able to accommodate a large number of bikes, even when the proposed area may have complex turns and angles. With the addition of side screens, cycle lockers and additional security features, we are able to create an ultra-safe place for bike storage.
With the Government’s Cycle to Work Scheme and public transport becoming more bike-friendly, cycling has become an increasingly popular choice for both students and commuters alike. Therefore, lack of a decent bike shelter may be a cause of potential inconvenience for visitors, customers or staff.
We have three standard bike shelter options Cyclo City™ a straight roof shelter offering complex configurations, Cyclo Bike™ a simple modular design canopy with a curved roof, and side panel options and the Cyclo Buggy™ a curved-roof canopy with excellent space efficiency.
Each secure structure has its own unique qualities, but all are highly durable, and each one has the potential for certain modifications. If you have a suitable location in mind for your bike shelter and would like further details on how A&S Landscape can work with you, please contact us on 01743 444100.
