Upgrades to the school entrance system

During the summer break we took the opportunity to upgrade our site entrance system and thereby increasing security of the site and students. 

The electronic opening gates include an intercom system so as visitors and delivery drivers are required to fully introduce themselves to reception before gaining access on site. 

There are also peak times when vehicles are denied access to allow students to arrive and leave school safely via the pedestrian gate. Vehicles are also denied access at break and lunch to allow students to fully use the grassed areas with reduced risk. 

There is offsite parking within close proximity and a pedestrian gate can be used should visitors arrive during these peak times.

Students requiring site exit during the school day now have to use the intercom to be approved to leave the premises. Post-16 however can use their ID badge to enter and leave site as required. 

If you are a visitor to the school we appreciate your assistance and understanding around our new entrance system.
