School Fencing

We design, manufacture, supply and install school fencing solutions for all educational establishments including nurseries, pre-schools, playgroup facilities, playgrounds, infant schools, faith schools, public and private schools, colleges and, universities. All our fencing has a 25 year guarantee, providing a low lifetime cost and more sustainable option.

School fencing is an important aspect of any education site.  From the fencing around the 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 help to prevent unauthorised entry to the grounds, keep students, staff, parents, and visitors safe, deter theft, truancy, and anti-social behaviour, and reduce the risk of vandalism.

We have manufactured and installed school fencing for hundreds of schools around the country for over 3 decades and can provide the right solution to meet your specific security needs. We have many options for school fencing including vertical bar railings which provide a smart appearance while helping wildlife, welded mesh panels for perimeter fencing or sports areas, and playground fencing, as well as demarcation fencing, bollards, automated gates, and access control solutions. 

Noise pollution is often a problem both coming from the school into residential areas but also entering the school from traffic or construction work. Our acoustic barriers are the perfect solution for reducing noise in and around the school whilst increasing privacy and security.

Buying fencing for schools 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.
