School Canopies

School Canopies

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


Available in all sorts of sizes, outdoor school canopies are used to create all sorts of sheltered spaces, ranging from outdoor learning and play zones, to walkways, study and dining areas. They can be colour-matched to the surrounding environment and offer protection from the wind, rain and snow, as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Thanks to their unique cantilevered design, our outdoor shelters for schools and playgrounds allow free-flowing footfall that helps to eradicate unnecessary accidents. We can even design canopies and shelters so they match your school’s colours.

All of our school canopy systems come with a ten-year installation and labour guarantee, leaving our customers safe in the knowledge that their investment is both long-term and low-maintenance.

When it comes to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), numerous studies have pointed to the value of outdoor learning and play. What’s more, Ofsted views outdoor learning as a critical component in primary schools delivering a well-rounded curriculum. Installing a school canopy can take you a step closer to achieving these requirements, allowing you to maximise outdoor space and create a covered play area that can be enjoyed in any weather.

Secondary schools are on average 3.5 times larger than primary schools, making them far more likely to have multiple buildings spread across a wide campus-style area. With students and staff often having to walk from one side of campus to the other, many secondary schools opt to install covered walkways to protect them from the elements. Our tailor-made sport spectator and entrance canopies for schools are also popular among secondary education establishments.

Colleges and universities often feel like self-contained communities, providing space for students to learn, but also to relax and socialise. As such, there are numerous benefits to installing a canopy within college or university grounds. They offer protection from bad weather when walking across campus, as well as providing communal study and breakout spaces for group exercises, or simply for students to relax during down time.
