Bryanston School – Student Registration


‘Ensuring full compliance with government legislation and the health, safety and welfare of our pupils is our top priority. This is why we chose Synel eduREG system which was the best biometric solution available.’    Andrew Barnes – Director Technology at Bryanston School


Bryanston School is set in a 400-acre estate with extensive co-education facilities. In order to meet government requirements for registration of pupils twice daily Bryanston identified a role for Bio-Metrics. In common with many other schools Bryanston did not want to restrict recreational activities such as sports, music and arts by attending registration. Self-registration by a mixture of fingerprint and facial recognition is rapid and fulfils Bryanston’s commitment. Access to certain areas of the school needed to be set up so only pre-qualified people could gain entry. Therefore, accurately identifying and locating pupils and personnel was of paramount importance.

The Synel Bio-Metric solution offers a student enrolment system, recording the presence, absence or lateness of students through fingerprint technology.

This solution saves times and reduces costs by eliminating manual registration and by providing an accurate account of students.

Furthermore, students are encouraged to take responsibility and truancy is diminished. For enhanced security, this system can be combined with Synel’s access control solution, where only authorised personnel can access the school or designated areas within the                                                                               

The Benefits

Utilising Bio-Metric technology enables the school to locate students on campus; saving time for pupils and tutors for afternoon registration. Pupils simply press the fingerprint enrollers at designated areas. If a pupil does not register, their housemaster and other dedicated staff are automatically alerted. Tutors will also be aware of absences such as dentist appointments or driving lessons etc.

Using Bio-Metric Face Detection Recognition technology, Sy-Face provides a touch-free and access control system, used in conjunction with fingerprint access control readers. This is the first system to deliver rapid detection and allows only authorised pupils and personnel to designated areas whether within the boarding or classroom buildings, eliminating the need for cards, or badges.SYNERGY_Green_FP Plate

  • Rapid detection
  • Security & Safety for all students
  • Enable afternoon registration
