Security Systems for Schools, Colleges and Universities

We have worked with numerous Schools Colleges and Universities and have come to understand the ethos and working practices – particularly so when it comes to the safety and security of students.

We understand that security and safety in places of learning is a challenge. With requirements ever-changing, and duty of care to protect students, the public and staff, you under constant budgetary pressures.

Therefore, it is important that you get your security right. You need to ensure that your organisation has the protection required, and that you have all bases covered, yet you cannot afford to over-specify.

Intruder alarms

Property crime can be extremely disruptive to your operations. Choosing the right intruder system ensures you have the most suitable protection against the right threats. With over 30 years’ experience we Wakefield Security will guide you to select the system to meet all your requirements.


CCTV in schools have always been an essential tool to keep an eye on your students. However, it is fast becoming much more than just a recording of what happened, and more of a tool to identify and inform people when something is happening, or not right. From detecting vehicles driving the wrong way around your car park, or informing you when something goes missing (Yes missing object detection), or when someone is in the swimming pool when they’re not supposed to be. We have the solution and the knowledge you need.

Access Control

Whether you work in a small school or a large campus, allowing free access to those who need it, and preventing it for those that don’t can be a difficult balancing act. We offer everything from simple single door systems through to sophisticated solutions.


Effective fire detection protects property, saves lives, and helps you meet your fire safety responsibilities. Our fire alarm systems are tailored to your needs and they provide a reliable early detection of fire, that safeguards lives and avoids business disruption.

Critical Incident Management

When protecting hundreds, even thousands of students during a potential crisis, every moment counts.

Wakefield’s Critical Incident Management solutions help you to alert your staff and personnel not just to what is happening, but also where. Giving them the information they need to make the right decisions.
