School grants: Funding for schools
Some of the most important places in the UK are our schools, teaching children all kinds of skills and passions to take into their future. That’s why we love creating canopies for schools that help teachers and students achieve everything they set their minds to. Use our canopies to create:
- Outdoor learning and play zones
- Study areas
- Dining areas
- Sport spectator areas
- And so much more!
However, for most educational projects and attention-grabbing initiatives, you often need funding to fully turn your idea into reality.
So, we’ve created a collection of school grants that may help you to find funding for school projects, from specific subjects and sports clubs to tackling mental health and improving the natural world around us.
For further proof of how important schools are to us, take a look at these additional materials for schools that we’ve created:
