The Judd School is a Voluntary Aided Grammar School for boys, with a number of girls in the sixth form, situated in Tonbridge, Kent and supported by The Skinners’ Company. It hosts 150 members of staff and around 1100 pupils.
The core of the school is the School Room – an inspiring 1896 hall which is used for assemblies, concerts and theatrical performances. In recent times, a further five substantial buildings have been added to the site, providing spacious and dedicated facilities for a variety of subjects. The old buildings have also been refurbished in order to provide the necessary space for various curriculum areas.
As with many schools, the rising cost of energy prompted the Governing body to start looking for a solution that would help reduce this significant financial overhead.
“Our primary goal was to cut energy bills and save money” said Allan Stanley who is their Estates & Facilities Manager, “But we also wanted a web-friendly solution that would make the entire heating system easier to control from a single location, rather than moving about between various boiler rooms” he added.
The Judd School contacted HeatingSave after receiving a very positive reference regarding the system’s impressive energy-saving capabilities from another local school. Allan recalls: “At the time, we were talking to another school in Tonbridge who had a HeatingSave system up and running. Based on their very good experience, we’ve decided to have it installed here as well.”
