From our largest UK project to date, the Priory Academies at Lincoln (that incorporated a mixture of newbuild and refurbishment work) to the partial refurb at Gorse Hill and the Science Block Photovoltaic installation at Southport College, Metrotile Lightweight Roofing has proven to be a very popular choice with roofing for education.

Rapid Installation

Metrotile’s inherent low weight – just one-seventh of comparable traditional roof tiles –  is the key to its many benefits, allowing rapid rooftop installations that crucially reduce disruption to the classes going on beneath them, or that can take place during short school holidays avoiding the classes altogether and ensuring tight installation deadlines are met in time for the pupils’ return to school.

Unmatched Security

Unfortunately, vandalism has been known to be a menace to many a school property. Fortunately, Metrotile offers an enhanced security option involving .900mm gauge tiles tested against high impact and heavy foot traffic, eliminating the concern on rooftop damage via vandalism.


Metrotile is an authorised Velux dealer, so if you require an educational project roof with windows, we have that covered. We also offer the Metrotile Photovoltaic System – as utilised by Southport College – so your rooftop can generate energy to keep utility bills to a minimum. These are just two examples of the extensive range of accessories Metrotile offers – your complete roof can be sourced from our Chippenham warehouse.
