Wellington School is situated in Timperley, Manchester. It caters for 1,365 Year 7 to 13 pupils and has 80 teaching staff.
We are so happy with how the canopies look. When I first came back to school after the installation and saw them in place, I was blown away. They are brilliant.
Susan Byiers, School Business Manager
We were approached by the school’s business manager, who wanted to create more space for students to sit and/or eat during break and lunch times. They also wanted a new canopy for the main entrance.
We needed to create a sheltered area that was:
- Large enough to take some of the strain away from the busy canteen hall
- In keeping with the rest of the school building
We made it really easy for the school to visualise the end result by creating mock-up images showing how the canopies would look in situ.
We installed one of our highly attractive and functional Connekt umbrella canopies to create the much-needed additional dining space.
We also installed one of our Connekt canopy systems over the main entrance.
Thanks to our bespoke colour-matching service, we were able to make sure the two canopies exactly matched the school’s colours and blended in with the surrounding environment.

Students at Wellington School now have more places to sit and/or eat during break times and the entrance leading up to the school is fully sheltered from the elements.
What’s more, everything we installed complements the existing buildings because they 100% match the school’s colours.
