Canopies UK save space at East Manchester Academy

Canopies UK save space at East Manchester Academy

Canopies UK installed their Connekt canopies at The East Manchester Academy.

Lack of space, particularly dining space, had become a real issue at the school, with students often struggling to find places to sit during their breaks and at a lunchtime.

The school decided that creating a covered outdoor seating area would give them the additional space they needed. It would also provide students with a place they could go, regardless of what the weather was doing.

Canopies UK recommended their back-to-back Connekt canopy system because the school wanted the sheltered eating area to be as large as possible. The canopy installed spanned 16m x 6m covering 96m2.

Space, or lack of it, is no longer an issue for the school or its students at break or lunchtimes. Pupils have a dedicated seating area they can use whenever they like and that protects them from the elements all-year round.

The school plans to double its size by installing another canopy right next to it once the rest of the area has been landscaped.
