Fencing and gates provide security for Northwood School

Project Overview

Design & Build
Lizard Landscape Design and Farrans Construction Ltd

North West London

Date Complete



Northwood School in North West London is one of the latest schools to benefit from Jacksons fencing and gate solutions, helping make the new school's perimeter security safe and secure.

Designed and built by Lizard Landscape Design and Farrans Construction Ltd, Northwood School is a £35 million regeneration project, part of a larger £145 million secondary school building and expansion programme by the London Borough of Hillingdon.

The Borough Council had noted that the old school was in ‘dire need of repair’ and that a rebuilt school site would benefit students and reflect the wider redevelopment of the area.

The modernised school is truly fit for purpose, accommodating over 1,000 students across three stories, and protecting them with 650 metres of Jacksons’ security solutions using a range of perimeter security applications.

Working closely with Lizard Landscape Design, Jacksons were able to understand the needs of the project and were able to offer a variety of Jacksons products for a range of purposes, all designed to make the site safe and secure for students, staff, and visitors.

The boundary of the school was secured with Barbican Imperial® fencing and gates with finials to provide security and an aesthetic look. Bespoke 3m high Hit and Miss fencing with steel posts was installed in another area of the school to provide the necessary protection whilst keeping the desired timber look. In order to prevent unauthorised access to the bottom of a fire escape, Jacksons Euroguard® Flatform gates were installed with a push pad for emergency egress. To provide a boundary between the main school and the service yard Jacksons’ Featherboard timber fencing was used in order to protect students, staff and other school visitors from potential injury.
