Project Background

Like all schools, Leighton Park takes
the security of its staff, pupils, their possessions, its premises and equipment very seriously.

Currently the school has approximately 500 students between the ages of 11 and 18. The majority of the school’s students are boarders, so security is paramount throughout the school’s facilities.

Leighton park schoolCelebrating their 125th anniversary, Leighton Park School are committed
to investing in their educational environment for both current and future students. With expensive equipment and facilities, it is vitally important Chris Lewis Fire and Security keep the security in and around the premises up to date to ensure maximum protection is provided for everyone in the school.

Chris Lewis Fire & Security (CLFS) have been working with Leighton Park School for over eight years, both extending and continually improving the security of the school. With flexibility in the length of the school day, and the provision of over ten school transport routes, the school requires stringent perimeter security, all year round.

Leighton Park School required barriers to be installed at the front entrance
of the school giving controlled access permission to regular visitors as well as monitoring the flow of traffic in and out

“Chris Lewis Fire and Security have always provided us with first class solutions. They always put our staff and pupils safety first. We are glad that we used a school security expert.”
