Project Case Study

Heathfield School

Heathfield is a dynamic and vibrant boarding school for girls aged 11-18, surrounded by stunning grounds in Ascot, Berkshire, with outstanding facilities.


The school has an unrivalled emphasis on nurturing each girl so that she achieves the best possible results while living life to the full by participating in Sport, Drama, Music, Art and an extended variety of extra-curricular activities.

Work has just been completed on the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) facility. This opened at the start of the 2015-2016 academic year.

What we did

AFS were initially engaged to install a new fire alarm system to protect the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) facility.

Once this project was completed we were asked by the school to put together a proposal to protect the entire school, whilst having regard for the decor of this historic site.

The system which has now been completed is a hybrid analogue addressable wired and wireless system, with wireless devices being used in the areas which could not be cabled without significant disruption to the decor.

The project was completed over two years during summer and Easter holiday periods while maintaining full protection as the new system was phased in to replace the previous fire alarm.
