Protecting your school’s assets and liabilities

Schools Gate
We’re specialist insurance advisers to the independent schools sector

As a leading independent school, it’s important that you protect your assets and liabilities. The insurance market is large, and organisations often come away from it with a siloed view of what’s an offer after having received a single quote from just one insurer.

We’ll formulate a complete insurance broking solution for you, where we’ll recommend the most appropriate cover based on scope and price. This means that you won’t need to spend time dealing with several brokers who are likely to produce only one quote from an insurer, making it difficult for you to make an objective comparison.

We have a long and successful track record of providing insurance and risk management services to independent schools. As well as arranging the insurance covers you would expect, we have partnered with a range of specialists to give schools access to their services including wellbeing and mindfulness, cyber exposures and risk management.

These are just some of the cover options we can arrange for your school:

  • Property and liability
  • Cyber
  • Motor and occasional business use
  • Annual travel
  • Engineering inspection and insurance
  • Staff absence insurance
  • Governors’/directors’ liability
  • Business interruption
  • Legal expenses/employment protection
  • School fees protection and pupil’s personal accident
  • Keyperson insurance


As part of our collaboration with School Notices, we will donate £25 to the Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) for every policy purchased.* MiSP have made children’s mental health a priority, pledging to reach a million children by 2024, to empower them to deal with challenging circumstances and help them to flourish, and this is a mission we thoroughly support and endorse.
