Communication and Safety at St Bedes High School with Audiebant – Case Study Video

St Bedes High School in Blackburn recently embraced a significant upgrade in communications by installing the Audiebant lockdown and general day to day communication system. Their requirement was for a comprehensive lockdown communication and bell system that would efficiently cover both indoor and outdoor areas and deliver distinct messages simultaneously to different zones within the school.

St Bedes High School recognized the necessity of a system that could not only handle emergencies but also streamline daily communications and announcements. The Audiebant system was identified as the perfect solution to meet these diverse needs.

Facilities manager – George Crewe from St Bedes High School shared his thoughts on the implementation: “We primarily use the system as a clear distinction between an alarm for evacuation and widespread messages to staff and pupils throughout the day. The bell facility is particularly useful to us.” This highlights the system’s versatility in addressing various communication requirements in a school setting.

The school’s journey to Audiebant began while updating their emergency plan. George Crewe noted, “It was a system we needed across four buildings all at once. It’s needed in the majority of schools, public buildings, and council buildings across the country.” St Bedes was directed to Audiebant through the local authority, finding that it exactly matched their needs.

George emphasised the ease of the process: “From consultancy to installation, the keyword was simplicity. There was no disruption to education, everything was done during term time, with fully DBS cleared engineers, and we were kept informed throughout.”

St Bedes High School were impressed with the training and ongoing support provided by Audiebant. George Crewe added, “The system is very user-friendly, and we have found helpful hints and tips on the website. I definitely recommend it to any school or public building looking for this sort of system.”
