Visiting interested member schools, working with relevant staff and leadership, our consultants will address the following:

  • Single Central Register
  • Boarder voice
  • UKVI process
  • Boarding leadership and management
  • Current inspection focus, topics and intelligence.

BSA physical security health check

As part of our consultancy services, we now offer a physical security health check, which includes a site visit to assess access and egress control, perimeter resistance and supporting technologies, focusing particularly on boarding houses and procedures. Boarding houses are often sites of high traffic and can be separate from the main school area or site altogether, but security is very important. The security health check can include an optional resilience check on unauthorised site access by an ex-police officer, as well as our recommendations based on the site visit.
