School Marquees & Tents

Safe and easy-to- erect, BigTop Shades school marquees and tents will protect students and staff from rain, UV radiation and wind.

Make your school events a success with a high-quality BigTop School Marquee!

BigTop Shades provides shade solutions to schools, colleges, universities, childcare centres, the education industry, and kindergartens throughout Australia.

Most Schools tend to choose our 3×6 size marquees as they can accommodate for a large number of students.

The 40 Series Pro Steel frame is a favourite among Schools, as this range is very sturdy and cost-effective. We usually recommend the 600D PVC Coated Polyester fabric, however if your School is located in Northern Territory, Western Australia or North Queensland you may want to consider our 580GSM 100% PVC fabric.

BigTop Shades school marquees are particularly helpful during school sports, presentation days, school fetes and carnivals.
