clip_image002Kingdom is pleased to announce that they are to start providing security services to a top boarding school in Yorkshire.

From March 2017, Kingdom will be providing manned guarding to Queen Margaret’s School in York, a top independent boarding school for girls which also welcomes day girls. Kingdom will be protecting the school throughout the night during the week and will be providing 24 hour coverage of the campus over the weekends, making sure that pupils, teachers, property and belongings stay safe, and thus providing reassurance to parents.

Kingdom’s dedicated education security team has extensive experience and an in-depth understanding of the education sector. They safeguard people, facilities and reputations, providing a safe place to both learn and teach. Their officers complete advanced vetting and are vigilant but discreet, helping educational establishments like Queen Margaret’s School to strike the right balance between being welcoming yet secure.

Girls at Queen Margaret’s are aged between 11 and 18, and 85% of the girls are full boarders, while day boarders have beds within the school and are encouraged to stay over on Friday evenings to take advantage of House activities. There are six houses at the school, which is in Escrick Park, near York. The school has been located there since 1949, but was founded in 1901 and had three different homes in its first 48 years.

Queen Margaret’s is the only all-girls’ full boarding school in the North of England. The school was named after Queen Margaret who was Queen of Scotland from 1070-1093 and is Scotland’s only female saint. Founded in 1901, the school has around 300 students who are inspired to “aim high and exceed their expectations” and “pursue their interests confidently”.
