School Awnings and Canopies

Whether it's to provide shelter for school children during playtime or provide a canopy for them to study under, Sovereign Awnings can supply and fit school awnings and canopies across the UK.

Our range of retractable awnings for schools, nurseries and colleges can provide shade in the sunshine as well as shelter in the rain. With our weather sensor fitted, the awning can auto-retract in the wind to prevent damage so you need never fear of forgetting to close the awning on a stormy day.

We can provide fixed or freestanding canopies for schools with a choice of retractable fabric awnings, lean-to canopies or cantilever canopies, depending on your usage requirements. Our lean-to and cantilever canopies are permanent and are therefore suitable as an all-weather shelter solution. Our retractable school awnings, on the other hand, can be operated manually with a winder or electrically by remote, switch or weather sensor to extend and retract when needed.

With a vast choice of colours and styles, as well as the option to have the school logo or text printed on the awning, Sovereign Awnings can supply and fit the perfect awning for your school.

In 2019, we fitted a 17m x 6m canopy to cover an expensive soft play area surface at St James-the-Less Roman Catholic Primary School in Rawtenstall. The bespoke canopy fitting involved fabricating brackets and fitting an aluminium box section to allow us to overcome the limited headroom so we could achieve the correct pitch. An additional canopy was fitted to the walkway, bringing the overall canopy coverage to 23m x 7m. Both canopies were powder coated in RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey.
