Broughton Hall High School is a Technology College for girls, located in the city of Liverpool, with nearly 1600 students and 250 staff. In 2010, the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme provided Broughton Hall with funding to create a new shared sixth form facility with neighbouring Cardinal Heenan High School for boys and refurbish the retained part of the school, which dates back over 90 years. As part of the this BSF programme, Mike Clays, Premises/Facilities Manager for Broughton Hall School, decided to replace the existing card access system with a fingerprint access system to control 38 doors. They chose the fingerprint system from Controlsoft for the simplicity of the enrolment software and the speed of identification by the fingerprint reader. The network capability of the system also enabled Controlsoft to utilise the schools existing IT infrastructure, which saved on cabling costs.
