School Fencing and Education

From the fencing around its perimeter to the main entrance gates, a visitor gets a clear impression of a school's commitment to safety and security well before entering its grounds.

In addition to defining its boundary and making a visual distinction between public and private property, the fencing and gates that surround and secure a school will typically meet a wide variety of other important criteria - from preventing unauthorised entry to the grounds, protecting pupils, staff and visitors from accidents and injury, deterring theft, anti-social behaviour and reducing the risk of malicious damage.

We have provided school fencing for hundreds of schools around the country and can find the right school fencing to meet the security needs of your school. We can also supply you with welded mesh panels and railing systems for school fencing - all possible with Jacksons school fencing.

Within the boundary, our barriers, bollards and parking posts will keep pedestrians and vehicles safe from each other, while our timber fencing and gates will control the flow of people around the grounds and reduce the areas where students can be hidden from view.

Noise pollution is of course a problem, and our acoustic barriers are the perfect solution to reducing noise in and around the school. And when your students are taking a break from exercising their minds, you can be sure our tennis courts, ball stop and RoSPA approved play fencing will minimise the risk of injury or accidental damage.

Providing innovative perimeter fencing and gate solutions for Northwood School

Northwood School in London was a £35m regeneration project, benefiting from a range of Jacksons’ security fencing solutions. The school, designed by Lizard Landscape Design and built by Farrans Construction Ltd, used 650 metres of Jacksons solutions, helping to make the school safe and secure for students, staff and visitors.

Buying responsibly

With the ongoing pressure on school budgets, it is imperative that any investment in fencing and access control measures represents a responsible use of public funds. Whenever possible, schools should take a long-term view on investment in capital purchases and select products which offer a long life expectancy giving a low life time cost.

All our timber and steel fencing and gates are manufactured in the UK and are designed to deliver fitness for purpose, low maintenance and carry leading 25 year guarantees to provide the lowest lifetime cost. Additionally, schools are being required to demonstrate sound environmental practice to protect the earth’s finite resources. Jacksons Fencing has achieved certification under the environmental chain-of-custody schemes of both the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) for its timber products.
