Description of Work: Fire & Security System Installation and Maintenance
Sherborne School for Girls, better known as Sherborne Girls School, is an independent day and boarding school for girls. The school was founded in 1899 by Mr. and Mrs. Kenelm Wingfield Digby. There are currently over 400 pupils attending the school, with a large majority of the students living on campus and residing in the seven boarding houses.
Wessex Fire & Security have a very long working relationship with the school and have carried out numerous fire and security alarm installations, including two recent fire detection systems in a new building and a refurbished boarding house.
To support our installation work we have established a single maintenance agreement for all the fire alarms across the whole estate, in addition to the security systems we maintain.
Matt Nelson, Facilities Bursar. Sherborne School for Girls said “Wessex Fire and Security is an excellent and very reliable fire and security provider to our school. Our specific requirements demand that efficiency and timely management of planned maintenance as well as reactive work is carried out in a timely, efficient and effective manner. We have an enviable one call contact relationship and they are also very cost competitive. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any school or company. ”
