Testimonials from recent canopy projects

It was a pleasure to work with Kensington Systems on this project. You’ll be pleased to know our Pre Prep boys are enjoying their outstanding outdoor learning space come rain 🌧️ or shine ☀️ Thanks to your team for all their hard work!

Paul Symes

Headmaster, Aldwickbury School

Our canopy is still looking fabulous, solid structure, the great roof colours create a very special place when the sun shines.

Paul Piontecki

Premises Manager, OSG Swansea Campus

Ryburn Valley High School engaged with Kensington Systems to produce a school canopy solution for a large outdoor dining area requirement at our school.

The whole process was quick and easy. Kensington were able to come up with several different designs scenarios for us to choose from. I would definitely recommend to any school looking for school canopies or dining canopies in the future as they were very flexible and accommodating with different design ideas.

Mark Thorley

Business & Compliance Manager, Ryburn Valley High School

We appointed Kensington Systems Ltd to install a Spaceshade Canopy at Cotham School and couldn’t have been more impressed.

From the initial design meeting all the way through to the end of the project Kensington have been great.

Our students really enjoy this new covered space that can be used all year around.

Ed Carpenter

IT & Facilities Manager, Cotham School

Very nice, sturdy, aesthetically pleasing and fits well into the area it was planned to go, also well fitted and finished.

Helen Fielder

Head of School, St Marks CE Junior School

We’re delighted with our covered walkway from Kensington Shade and Shelter. It has added an extra dimension to our outdoor space. It fulfills its function of keeping children dry as they travel around the school site but also works architecturally in the environment. The muted greys of the powder coated finish work in harmony with other structures on the site and enhance the setting as well as forming a visual link with the outdoor classrooms.

The installation was highly professional and we were consulted and kept informed throughout the process. The installers worked beyond their normal hours to make sure our canopy was completed in the time.

Jeremy Harrison

Headteacher, Hillside First School, Verwood, Dorset

Our school has recently had a canopy installed on one of our buildings. The work was started and completed as scheduled and to budget. We are very pleased with the structure, it enhances the appearance of the building and provides a smart looking sheltered area for learning and recreation. Having the guttering system integral to the structure means this is not vulnerable to damage by students, as has been the case in the past with a traditional system.

Graham Newman

Facilities Manager, The Pines School, Sutton


The Spaceshade canopies installed at our new school are very robust, look fantastic, we are very impressed by the ongoing service levels received by Kensington Systems Ltd.

We would recommend them to any school or academy trust looking for a new covered space or shaded area.

Craig Davis

Facilities Manager, Perry Court Primary Academy, Bristol

Just a note to say thanks for the install. It looks great and will be a great addition to our school. We will be sure to contact you again if we need something similar in the future.

Jeff Seater

Palladian Academy Trust

I’d like to thank Kensington for the prompt and professional service we experienced during the recent canopy install at Great Hollands Primary School; your team delivered this project on time and to a highly satisfactory standard.

The SpaceShade canopy systems look fabulous and have been a great addition to both the new and existing parts of the building, creating some excellent outdoor learning areas and covered play space.
I would have no hesitation in using your School canopies again on future projects or indeed recommending you where the opportunity arises.

Kensington installed a number of canopies for us at Perry Court School. They were polite and professional and their products are high quality – we’re very happy with the end result.

David Enever

Great price, great product and a very personal service..the only company out of a lot I contacted that took the time to come to site and measure up, discuss etc before submitting a quotation.

Testimonials from recent blinds projects

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did of those tricky blinds, which are a huge success.

Sir James and Lady Deirdre Dyson

Tom did a top job and the added functionality [of the external blinds] provides for a wonderful multi-functional space at all times and in all weathers.

Charles Horn

Craig initially helped us with a sun screen and blackout blind product specification suitable for the refurbishment project of the grade 2* listed City Hall in Bristol. Craig was extremely attentive and his experience and knowledge resulted in the scope of work being expanded to include dress curtains for the conference hall and the restoration of curtains in the council chamber and other rooms of heritage importance. The project was well executed and we look forward to working with Craig again on other projects.

Alison White

The University of Bristol has used Kensington Systems for the supply of window blinds for a number of years on a preferred supplier basis.

Kensington have always offered a professional and reliable service in the time that they have supplied to the university. We would happily recommend them to provide similar services elsewhere.

Following our introduction to Kensington Systems, I have found the more than adequate for the job in hand and in my opinion reduced maintenance costs over a period of time.

I am writing to express my thanks for the work your company completed for us during the half term break. It was a pleasure to come back to school today to find not only was all the work completed as per the schedule but unlike some of the other contractors on site, each area your people worked in was left totally clean and tidy.

Bob Henstridge

Technical Services Manager, Belfairs High School

Kensington have supplied and installed blinds to Park Hall School and have proved to be very good indeed. They are sturdy enough to take the day to day punishment that a school can offer and also look good.

All in all I can recommend Kensington who offer an excellent service with good communication and good after sales service.
