Outdoor learning and outdoor play are important for all schools and early years settings. They can enhance pupils’ learning experiences, helping to develop skills and inspire creativity.
Our collection of outdoor shelters, shades and canopies provide an opportunity for children to learn in a high-quality environment away from the confines of traditional and formal classrooms. They enable a new approach to education, housing specific activities while reducing the pressure on indoor space.
Broxap design, manufacture and install outdoor classrooms in a wide range of sizes and configurations. A canopy can be included as a standalone feature in a school courtyard, or act as an extension to existing buildings. A shelter can bridge an awkward space. It can provide overhead cover or all round protection from the weather such as with a wooden outdoor classroom constructed by our playground equipment division.
An outdoor classroom or canopy from Broxap can be adapted to suit a wide range of educational requirements: a forest school, a messy play area, a drama studio, an intimate seminar space or lecture hall.
Our collection of outdoor classrooms, canopies and shelters for schools create safe, dry and comfortable environments with plenty of natural daylight. At the same time, the high-quality cladding options we provide give protection from harmful UV rays and wet weather, and our bespoke range is built to comply with structural design codes.
Outdoor classrooms and shelters for schools are designed to complement existing buildings and surroundings. They can include vinyl rollers, side panels and doors to enhance usability and function, and we offer an extensive choice of style and materials.
Broxap has experience in creating outdoor classrooms and shelters for a number of educational establishments including universities, colleges, schools, early years settings and nurseries. It is a key supplier to contractors on the schools building framework as well as working directly with headteachers, governors, academy trustees and school business managers.
