Winnersh Primary School Canopy Club

The Children at Winnersh Primary School are now running a 'Canopy Club' during school lunch times.

The poster at the school advertising the 'Canopy Club' states:

  • Lots of stuff to do 
  • For any year
  • Games, word searches and FUN, FUN, FUN !! 

The 'Canopy Club' is an example of another innovative way in which schools are using canopies for outdoor play.

Since installing the canopy in July 2015 the school have used it for outdoor eating, a quiet area, the 'Canopy Club' and Christmas carol concerts.

The 9m x 9m Airone Max structure is manufactured in galvanised steel and powdercoated in the school colours. The eye catching canopy is manufactured from a high grade 100% waterproof PVC which also cuts out all harmful UV rays making this the ideal structure for covering larger playground spaces.

Playground Shelters - easy to fit during term time

Playground Shelters - easy to fit during term time

With only 2 weeks left of our busy school holiday canopy build schedule and orders already coming in for the October half term, we thought it may be of interest to some of our readers as to how we safely conduct a canopy installation during term time.

Did you Know ?.....

Most of our canopy installations only involve three days of site work.

By use of Herras temporary fencing our work area can be secured against unauthorised entry.

All of our staff are DBS checked and have undergone many internal safety training schemes.

We are members of CHAS and Constructionline safety schemes, ensuring all of our work is carried out safely.

We can even arrive on site before the pupils - this means we can be in our secure working area before they arrive.

We can, if required, carry out installations at weekends


How to organise a canopy installation for your school....

Please give us a call on 01189 789072 or contact us here and we will be happy to arrange a no obligation site visit to run through our product range with you to find the one that matches your needs best. Further to acceptance of a quotation from us we would re-visit the site to confirm all of the final details ; exact location, canopy colours, framework colours, installation program etc.. From date of order to installation is typically 4 - 6 weeks. For further information you may wish to visit our FAQ's page. For an overview of our products please take a look at our many schools pages.


We look forward to assisting you with your canopy project soon.

CANOPIES – Solving the space issue during wet break

School populations are on the up, the canteen is to full capacity and the school hall hasn’t got any bigger. Where do your pupils go during wet break?

Zenith Canopy Structures Limited have been supplying canopy structures to schools across the UK for over 25 years. These have been used to great effect for extra covered dining space, covered outdoor play areas or as shelter from the elements. Featuring a PVC canopy our Maxline products are perfect for sheltering from the rain or when we get some, the sun.

Installing extra covered areas within your school grounds, in our experience, is always well received by the pupils and seen as a positive improvement to their environment. It also relieves the school building from the hustle and bustle school breaks can bring.

If you feel you could benefit from one of our school canopies or playground shelters please give us a call today on 01189 789072 or complete our contact us page and we will call you.


Richmond-upon-Thames College have been using our canopies for over 7 years ......

“We had an unused area in one of our quadrangles and wanted to provide our students with the outdoor covered area for eating and drinking.

We had seen Zenith canopies at another school and liked the design and quality. After discussing the project with Zenith we decided to cover a 180sq/m area to one side of the quadrangle. We would like thank Zenith for their professional conduct in the installation of our canopy. We will be recommending their company to other institutes.”
