FREE CCTV SURVEY to see if your system is fit for purpose and whether your school is overpaying for its maintenance

90% of secondary schools have a CCTV system, yet a high proportion of schools are paying unnecessarily high annual fees to support and maintain an old analogue or early IP CCTV system.

Which is why, Gaia Security would love to undertake a FREE CCTV SURVEY to a) see if your CCTV system is fit for purpose, and b) to see if your school is overpaying for its current CCTV system’s support and maintenance.

“To date, we have saved schools an average of 25% on CCTV support and maintenance costs.” Martyn Wilks, Sales & Account Manager, Gaia Security

To discuss your current CCTV maintenance and support contract with a member of our team, and/or to book a FREE CCTV SURVEY and receive a report of our findings, please do get in touch either by:

Alternatively, you can visit our website for more information.

If you’re wondering how an upgraded CCTV system could potentially cost the same or less than your current system, the answer is: due to advancements in technology. Nowadays, some CCTV system maintenance can be carried out remotely and CCTV hardware costs less now than it once did.

History Summer Schools 2018 – Booking Now Open

The Debate Chamber Summer Schools offer students age 11-18 the opportunity to find out more about some fascinating subjects, prepare for university applications, meet like-minded peers and get to grips with some tough intellectual challenges.

The material will be challenging (about the level of difficulty one might expect in the first year at university), but the atmosphere will be relaxed, with plenty of discussion, debate, and opportunities for students to shape the direction of classes. It is an environment conducive to getting to grips with new ideas.

Working in small groups (usually around 14 students per group) over several days offers participants a real chance to get to know tutors and fellow students and to explore the topics or questions that particularly interest them.

Highlights of Summer 2018 for students (aged 15-18) interested in History:

The History Summer School is an intensive five-day course which looks at historiographical questions and historical methods, using seminars, lectures, activities and informal discussions. Topics are selected to challenge and broaden the historical outlook of participants, and give a taste of what the subject is like at undergraduate level.

See more details of the History Summer School here.

The Classical Civilisations Summer School looks at the ancient worlds of Greek and Rome from a range of perspectives, including politics, international relations, literature and philosophy. On this course we try to convey both the radical strangeness of the classical world, and to look at the legacy in modern times of ancient thinkers, ideas and institutions.

See more information about the Classical Civilisations Summer School here.

In addition to the those highlighted above, we also have Summer Schools in International Relations, Politics, Economics, Philosophy, English Literature, Law, Medicine, Dentistry, Maths and Physics.

Practical Details:

All the Summer School events will be held at University of London venues in Bloomsbury, Central London, and will take place in July and August 2018. Please note that these courses are not residential, and accommodation must be arranged independently if required.

You can find full details of schedules, dates, costs, student reviews and tutors at

There is a limited amount of bursary funding available for students who would otherwise have financial difficulty in attending – please see our website for details.
