Independent Schools


Risk management and insurance solutions as individual as your independent school

As an independent school you will have unique business and risk issues, some of which can be overlooked by other insurance companies and brokers. We are one of the few brokers in the country with a team of true education sector specialists and access to a range of markets.

No two schools are the same and we can only provide you with the most appropriate advice and solutions if we spend sufficient time understanding the specific risks you face, so we visit you in person - for free and with no obligation - to understand where you may be exposed now and in the future. Then, from the comprehensive range of risk management services and insurance covers we have access to, we will build a tailored programme to respond to your individual challenges, giving you the assurance that your budget is allocated where you need it most and your premium represents value for money, whether you purchase individually or as part of a group.
