Securing a Multi-Campus International Private School

Sector: Education

Sites: Four Sites, United Kingdom

System: CCTV & Barriers


Established to cater to the diverse needs of both local and global families, this leading educational institution provides high-quality education, day and boarding, to a diverse student body ranging from the ages of 2 to 18 from over 100 countries. The institution's commitment to safety and security across their four campus sites has been implemented by A Plus Security.


The main challenge our client faced was needing to have constant ‘eyes’ over all the campuses. Operating in environments with expansive green spaces and idyllic surroundings which are easily accessible, these campuses posed unique challenges in terms of security.

Secondly, system downtime had to be limited, as even when students are not in residence, the campuses are still busy working environments, and the systems ensure the safety and security of all contractors and staff.

Strict regulations prohibited any non-critical repairs during term time, requiring A Plus Security to devise a meticulous implementation schedule before the students returned.


As part of our scoping process, and drawing on extensive experience in projects like this, we established all potential challenges before we started work. Our client was very clear about what they wanted, so this was very much a collaborative effort to deliver a very successful project with no disruption to business.

As we were upgrading multiple campuses, to ensure continuous surveillance, we decided not to run the install concurrently as we believe this approach shuts down all ‘eyes’ for too long.

Each individual site is system-linked and sits on the same network, so security teams have a view of all sites and cameras can be seen throughout each property. Our chosen approach was to complete one campus at a time, utilising a detailed programme for each area of each campus.

Installed systems

  • Avigilon CCTV replaced an old, dedicated Micros Sprite CCTV system with NETVU software


Comprehensive system training was provided by our team to the school staff.  

What our
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

International Group of Schools

We chose A-Plus Security to carry out the upgrade of our electronic security systems for our 9 colleges and they have far exceeded our expectations in their approach to the projects. We are a UK wide organisation where the planning and mobilising of these major project around term times is time critical and A Plus Security have been nothing short of fantastic in the communication, there design proposals, openness to last minute changes, pre and post-sales support and their management of 3rd party companies and IT services. We would highly recommend A Plus Security to any organisation who are looking to install or upgrade their systems.

Nationwide Groups of Colleges

A Plus Security exceeded all expectations, following a late award of the contract due to a different contractor pulling out. All fire and security works were completed when requested and signed off on finish, with no issues noted. We have continued working with A Plus on following projects and would fully recommend them.
