Southam College is an 11-18 LA maintained Secondary School with 1538 students including 270 Sixth Formers. Recent Ofsted inspections in 2011 and 2014 have rated the school as outstanding and it continues to be oversubscribed.
The management of visitors and pupils entering and exiting the site was under review and an improved system was sought by the Senior School Staff.
Adaptive IT's Solution
After initial consultation and a live demo at the main campus, the market leading InVentry Visitor Management system was selected to be installed.
In a Secondary School environment the installation of the dedicated screens into both main reception and student services is often of great benefit and this was the strategy adopted here which means student and visitor traffic are dealt with extremely efficiently.
Following configuration and initial training, the system has been successful from the go-live date until present day.
We have found the InVentry System to be a positive addition to the College.
As a visitor system it is a great safeguarding tool and allows us to know who is onsite in the event of an emergency. We also use it for students signing in after registration and to sign out for appointments – the link to SIMS makes the system very efficient.
Installation was very neat and fits nicely in our modern reception area. Support calls are dealt with promptly and are easy to log with the InVentry online helpdesk.Jon Hale
