Amery Hill School in Alton, Hampshire is a school with academy status, which provides education for approximately 820 pupils aged 11 to 16. As a smaller than average size academy, the Amery Hill community say they “can shout with confidence that we know every student”, with an emphasis on exceptional care of every pupil.
The school had been looking at ways in which students could be outside during break times to enjoy the fresh air and provide a change from the confines of the classroom, even in inclement weather. Waverley were approached and asked to provide two canopies to accommodate new tables and seating in the playground.
Following meetings and surveys on site, we have supplied and installed 2 no. WeatherSpan® Free-Standing Apex Roof Canopies, each 21 metres x 12 metres, to two different areas of the playground.
These provide substantial outdoor cover for seating and shelter at break times – the size of approximately two netball courts!
This is a great advantage to a school in the Covid-19 era with the emphasis on maximising activity in fresh air, and providing great flexibility and facilities for years to come.
Our aluminium WeatherSpan® canopies are made to last: manufactured in our UK factory from 100% non-corrosive materials, they are wind tested and can carry snow loads up to 65kg per square metre and are accredited to BS EN 1090.
