Wolfreton School

Wolfreton School in Hull required a canopy to provide additional outdoor cover for break and lunchtimes.


The school struggled for space at break and lunchtimes. Overcrowding became especially apparent during poor weather due to restricted space in the canteen area of the school.

The requirement

We were asked to produce an outdoor covered area to allow students to sit under to eat their lunch in all weathers. The location for the canopy was slightly away from the school building, so the canopy would be freestanding.

The solution

We attended the school site to survey the area and discuss it with the contractors who were managing the project. They explained their needs and we provided some suggestions on the most practical design. The solution was our Connekt back-to-back canopy.


The canopies look smart and match the school building. The students now have plenty of sheltered space to use during lunch and break times.
