ST DUNSTAN’S COLLEGE

St Dunstan’s Colege is a co-educational independent school in Catford, London, England. A member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference.

Challenge

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent government 

guidelines, St Dunstan’s College like several schools and colleges 

throughout the UK, suddenly required a solution to help them manage/organise their pupils around the school safely; maintaining social distancing. 

Solution

St Dunstan’s College reviewed various options for a solution, however settled with a Public Address system, which met their requirements. 

 

After receiving a selection of traditional designs and installation quotes, St Dunstan’s contacted Think Systems to enquire about a more cost effective solution, after the initial consultation. Think Systems proposed an Axis Network Audio system utilising the clients existing network infrastructure, this solution reduced the costs due to less cabling and equipment needed, as opposed to a traditional Public Address system.

Result

The work was successfully completed within the given timescale and budget. The system was put into action on the first day pupils arrived back to school, after the pandemic lockdown. 

The system provides announcement throughout the building including outside. The staff and pupils are able to hear clear instructions enabling free movement around the school at all times. As a result of the installation, St Dunstan’s College have expanded the system with additional microphones, to accommodate their Headmaster’s and Bursa’s office.
