SFS Group has been a niche insurance intermediary in the independent education sector since 1991 and is committed to the long term provision of service to the schools’ community.
In a letter of acceptance to the Association’s Chief Executive, Martin Linaker, the Commercial Director, stated “This is an exciting opportunity for us to work in close partnership with the Association and the schools to deliver relevant, value for money and bespoke insurance and risk management solutions to your members.
We believe in offering the highest standards of personal service and attention to our customers. We intend to play a full part in helping you and the schools shape the insurance you need by developing and introducing new and innovative products.”
SFS Group can offer the full range of schools products, including property, liability, motor and travel, as well as offering consultancy services for crisis management. For parents, they are the providers of the unique School Fees Trust Scheme, which pays school fees in the event of a parental death, as well as offering cover for pupil personal possessions and sickness and absence insurance. Furthermore, as a Lloyd’s cover holder, they can access the Lloyd’s insurance market for many non-standard risks.
SFS Group already provides insurance cover and advice to several ISA Schools and directly insures over 150 member schools of the Independent Schools Council.
The Independent Schools Association is one of the oldest of the independent schools’ organisations. Founded in 1879, it provides professional support to its 300 member Head Teachers, and includes a whole range of schools from nursery, to prep to senior and sixth form.
