More than insurance

We have been providing specialist education insurance for over 55 years. Our experience means we are able to provide more than an insurance policy. You will also gain access to tools and services that help you maintain a safe learning environment. 

Risk management services for education

We carry out a risk survey1 and valuation, which highlights risks and how they can be improved.We also provide risk guidance and support via our risk advice line and have a Preferred Supplier Network with leading market specialists.

For independent schools we now also provide a Risk Tracker report2 to show the impact of improvements you make following our survey and valuation, as well as benchmarking data for your sector.
