eternal white doorKings Houghton Middle School, a community middle school run by Central Bedfordshire Council, was the original school situated on the site. The school was later renamed Houghton Regis Academy and converted to academy status, sponsored by the Greenwood Academies Trust group of Academies, on 1 September 2012.

In September 2013, the school began to transition to a secondary school, modifying its age range. However, in August 2022, the school permanently closed its doors.

The construction of Houstone School within the premises of Houghton Regis Academy formed part of the wider Kingsland campus. While the school building was scheduled to open in 2022, the discovery of Neolithic, Roman, and Bronze Age remains during construction postponed its completion. As a result, pupils were temporarily accommodated in the former UTC Central Bedfordshire buildings, and the new school officially opened in September 2022. The new school building is expected to be operational by Spring 2023.

Mortice locks, which are commonly referred to as 5-lever locks, are the primary locks on many doors )Internals & External doors) and are inserted into a pocket on the side of the door. Insurance companies often require that an appropriate mortice lock be fitted to provide coverage, with the most common standard being BS3621. You can easily check if your lock meets this standard by examining the faceplate for the BS3621 stamp, along with a date and the British Standard Kitemark. 

We can recommend alternative locks that meet the BS3621 standard and our locksmiths carry these locks with them at all times, so we can replace your old locks with ease and efficiency. Our skilled professionals use specialised tools and techniques to ensure a smooth installation process, so you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a secure and reliable lock without any unnecessary hassle. To replace an Insurance Approved 5 lever Deadlock, simply arrange an appointment at a time that suits your schedule with LU Locksmith services by calling this number: 0800 707 4203.
