Outdoor Shelters for Schools

Classroom Canopies & Outdoor Shelters for Schools

From enhancing children’s communication skills to encouraging them to be more physically active, outdoor learning offers numerous benefits. But it can be difficult for schools to enable outdoor learning without having a dedicated space – particularly given the challenges of the Great British weather.


With an outdoor classroom canopy from Canopies UK, schools can quickly and easily create an inspiring space in which to teach classes all year round.

Our classroom canopies are an investment in your school’s future, with no cleaning required and a ten-year installation and labour guarantee available as standard.

Canopies UK’s outdoor classrooms allow teachers to take the classroom outside, providing a sheltered environment where schoolchildren can learn, play and socialise whatever the conditions. Removing the hassle of finding a suitable sheltered space makes it far simpler for teachers to hold lessons outdoors.

Our classroom canopies are designed for all seasons. As well as providing shelter against the rain, they come with a Melinex gel roof coating that blocks out 90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Made from Glass Reinforced Polyester, they are also strong enough to withstand wind and snow.
If you want to create a customised outdoor learning space for your school or nursery, we can help. The modular system means our classroom canopies can be extended to cover a whole playground, and they can be delivered in a colour of your choice. All you have to do is provide us with the matching RAL code.
