Created in 2009 and sponsored by the University of the Creative Arts and Medway Council, Strood Academy aims to raise aspirations and academic results. This educational vision is reflected in the school building design, a mature and purposeful educational environment where children of all abilities can learn and thrive. A recent £26m development of new buildings based in Carnation Road opened in September 2012 with external play and sports facilities due for completion by Easter 2013.
An integral part of this new external scheme included a series of breakout shelters for the students, ensuring protection from the elements year round. A trio of Mendip 6P 500s from our range of pre-designed fabric canopy structures were selected to provide maximum cost-effective impact, complimenting perfectly the contemporary, architect designed scheme.
We sincerely hope that they will not only enhance break times but will also help to inspire a new generation of tensile fabric experts!
