Within the last five years, the school’s premises have undergone a major overhaul. The £26 million project won several awards, creating a premium quality 21st Century learning facility.
The 11,000 sq ft main building was completed in 2014, with a dedicated vocational training facility opening its doors a year later. The new facilities also include a state-of-the-art 4G all-weather sports pitch, used both by the school and the local community.
Brentwood’s relationship with Woodlands predates this radical transformation in the school premises. Starting in 2011, we have supplied the school with two way radios for use by their office, teaching and grounds staff.
The last fleet of radios we supplied was a set of unlicensed Motorola XT420 and XT460 handsets, before the rebuild commenced. These two way radios served the school’s needs just fine in the old building. However, following the opening of the new school premises, staff started to notice that coverage was no longer as reliable as it used to be. Signal would drop out or become distorted as users made calls, and messages were no longer reaching right across the grounds.
