School Canopies and Playground Shelters | Canopies UK

Canopies for Schools

Having installed canopies for more than 5,000 schools across the UK, our school canopies are renowned within the learning sector. Nurseries, primary & secondary schools, academies and further education facilities are all benefiting from our school canopy products.[toggle]

Due to government legalisation and modern teaching practices, schools as well as nurseries are choosing to invest in outdoor spaces so their pupils can enjoy new learning environments.

Whether you are looking to construct an outdoor classroom or playground shelter, or simply shield pupils, teachers and parents from rain and strong winds, we have a solution for your school.

All of our outdoor shelters for schools and playgrounds have a unique cantilevered design, allowing for free-flowing footfall that helps to eradicate unnecessary accidents. We can even design canopies and shelters so they match your school’s identity![/toggle]

You can also request a brochure and have the full range posted out to you.
