Sheffield High School

Sheffield High School Fire Extinguisher Training

Sheffield High School is one of the 24 schools and two academies administered by the Girls’ Day School Trust. The Trust was formed in 1872 by a Christian group, but the schools are now non-denominational and girls are admitted irrespective of background or belief. The Trust schools are independent as a result of the phasing out of the Direct Grant scheme in 1976.

As a member of the Girls’ Day School Trust, Sheffield High School forms part of an organization which, for well over a century, has promoted the education of girls. Early pupils were among the first women to obtain university degrees and enter the professions.

We were contacted in early 2014 to discuss a bespoke fire training programme. With over 80 staff, the management team had already provided instruction in emergency procedures and basic fire awareness.

A training package was agreed and in April, we attended site to carry out a full day of training. This consisted of a series of 5 one hour fire extinguisher theory and practice. This was conducted in a safe area which was risk assessed. A gas simulator was used to create a read fire for delegates to use extinguishers on. Over 75 staff attended the training and gained much needed confidence and experience.
