Introducing Cabins For Schools

Introducing our sister company - Cabins For Schools. Outdoor classrooms are gaining increasing popularity as an effective and cost-efficient way to supplement the learning space available at schools. Log cabins, modern outdoor classrooms or other wooden structures are becoming more common due to the unique learning environment they provide. Schools have found these spaces to be perfect for school libraries, reading nooks, nature learning, and special education – such as social and emotional learning (SEL) and nurture classes – making them attractive choices for today’s growing educational institutions.

About Cabins For Schools

Cabins for Schools is part of a leading UK wooden outdoor building manufacturing business. We offer bespoke wooden and zero-maintenance buildings to Schools, businesses, and the general public in order to meet the growing need for extra space in the education, work and home environment. Our Outdoor classrooms, Forest, and Wooden Cabins allow people to learn, work, rest and play in an inspirational or “home from home” setting, simply by utilising land already available in playgrounds, fields, car parks, or the garden.

Every component we use in our Cabins For Schools is guaranteed for quality and durability. Each building comes with a 10-year workmanship and labour guarantee, plus the guarantees of each individual component or building material included.  It's important to follow the rules and guidelines of how to use and maintain your cabin (emailed to you at time of purchase) as failure to do so will invalidate the guarantee. Below are some typical examples:

  • 10 year guarantee on building materials.
  • 1 year metalwork guarantee (including hinges, handles and ironmongery).
  • 10 year guarantee on UPVc doors.
  • 10 year guarantee on window frames.
  • 5 year guarantee on glass window units.

To build our Cabins we make use of only the best raw materials and building components, and fully qualified local contractors.

  • Timber: Forest Stewardship Council Approved timber suppliers.
  • Roofing: For flat roofs we use high performance EPDM rubber roofing. For sloping roofs we use Kerbit SBS roofing shingles.
  • Doors & Windows: Double glazed, energy efficient uPVC doors and windows for peak energy efficiency.
  • Insulation: High quality silver-backed foam insulation from Celotex, 
    Kingspan, Extratherm or similar.
  • Finishing: FSC approved MDF interior boards with Neatmatch damp resistant coating.

Our design team are on hand to turn your vision into a reality. Your ideas and sketches are transformed into a CAD drawing which is then perfected until you are 100% happy. The design is then sent to our factory where the cabin is created.

When you order your new Cabin, we will arrange a convenient delivery and installation schedule, with an affordable quote tailored to your needs. The cost of delivery and fitting depends on the size of your building, where you live, transportation distance and how many people you need to set up your new Cabins For Schools building.

The final price is determined by the size of your school building and the features you choose. We provide a comprehensive, transparent quote for each Cabin, issued on an individual basis. Your quote will include design consultation, base, construction materials and labour.

Cabins For Schools Wooden Building Manufacturer

What makes Cabins for Schools different from other outdoor classroom or wooden cabin suppliers?

We manufacture our buildings right here in the UK. Our factories are based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire and the whole manufacturing process is done in-house using our employees. Our business roots are in manufacturing, starting back in 2006 when Gareth Parkinson (founder) bought Arctic Cabins BBQ Huts to the UK market. Also, you will be assigned a dedicated account manager who will guide you through the process; from the initial brief take and design through to the installation and beyond, you will have one main point of contact to help navigate the project to ensure it is stress-free.

We install outdoor classrooms and wooden school cabins using our DBS-checked full-time employees – all year round, come rain or shine! Our professional and friendly teams work both during term time and during the school holidays to install School cabins and classrooms across the UK within a super efficient timeframe! (Usually completed in full within 1 week). Our buildings are built to last! Many components have a 20-30 year life expectancy with minimal maintenance. We’ve got that covered for schools that require a fully maintenance-free option. Ask about our Marley cladding on made-to-order Eco School Rooms. We also offer a fully comprehensive 10-year guarantee!


Hydropool is committed to minimising and neutralising its carbon emissions. Initiatives such as lean manufacturing, supporting environmental projects and their tree planting program are constantly reducing the size of the brand’s carbon footprint. By constantly developing energy efficient technologies in their hot tubs and swim spas, such as the HydroWise Thermal Shield, minimal heat is lost from the water – which is really good news for running costs too! We fundamentally believe that the technologies used by Hydropool in their products alongside their 35+ years of experience make their hot tubs and swim spas the best you can invest in.

View Outdoor Wooden Buildings on display at show sites in the East and West Midlands!

We know how important it can be to see, touch and experience the quality of an outdoor classroom or wooden building. This is why you can view our cabins on display at either of our show sites. We also exhibit at shows across the year where you can step inside the show cabin and get a feel for the space and quality yourself. If you would like to know whether we have installed any School cabins or classrooms near to your school, get in touch with Anne-Marie who will be happy to check our School customer map to see where we have installed buildings near you.
