Security Systems for the education sector


At Absolute Security we specialise in the education sector and have provided security solutions for institutions of all set ups and sizes – ranging from nurseries and schools through to further education colleges.

We have worked with both the private and state education sector – advising on and supplying a wide range of school security systems including:

  • CCTV systems – including HD CCTV and those utilising an IP network
  • Access control – including intercom systems, passes and with remote monitoring options
  • E-registration systems
  • Security lighting
  • Automatic gates and barriers
  • Intruder alarm systems
  • Fire detection systems
  • Integrating security systems – CCTV, access control, intruder alarm and fire detection for better centralised management and control
  • Installing dedicated networks for all a school or college’s security needs (if the current IP network isn’t able to cope with the security system functionality)

Our employment practices and obligations under our gold standard membership of the National Security Inspectorate mean we also comply with the necessary criteria for schools’ safeguarding pupils policies.

The security challenges schools, colleges and university face.

Despite budget freezes and cutbacks many schools and colleges still face complex security and access challenges.

Duty of Care responsibilities mean the protection of pupils, students and staff is paramount, and yet access across their site can cause head-teachers and site managers a real headache. Often buildings were constructed before security became such an essential element of school management.

At the same time, keeping intruders out has to be balanced with safety – especially in the event of a fire. In no way should access gates, security doors and locks hamper evacuation in any way.

Financing options for education sector security systems

We are also able to offer independent schools and colleges finance options on their security system purchase to help them manage their budgets more effectively. By making monthly or quarterly payments, you can have the latest security equipment with minimum hassle and disruption to existing budgets. Financing options are provided through our finance partner, Reality Finance, who will work closely with you to ensure you receive the best value for money.
