Linton Park School, Maidstone


This independent school sought a ‘Lockdown solution’ with integrated CCTV.

To the casual observer, Linton Park School sits quietly in the scenic Kent countryside, but with the rising incidence of public building attacks, they realised the leadership team had to be prepared.

Linton Park School consists of several timber frame buildings in the style of a collection of traditional farm buildings. At the point of any attack, the students could be in one of many locations outside or inside. They required a site-wide alerting system to ensure our lockdown procedure was fast and effective.

The Anchor Solution

A Lifebell III system was commissioned by installers Anchor Sound & Security.

The system complemented the CCTV installation with:

  • IP speakers internally and externally
  • Break glass points activating an immediate alarm tone
  • Help points spaced throughout the school
  • Control handsets situated in admin offices
The outcome

The school were delighted with the solution and how it was installed. The Headteacher, said, 'The whole experience of working with Anchor was straightforward, honest and effective. They came up with a good solution, the staff and students are comfortable and the whole school feels more secure'.
