Independent Schools

Providing insurance solutions to help your school thrive

We understand that every school is unique, and we're truly independent thinkers.

Hayes Parsons Insurance Brokers is a key supporter of the independent school sector, arranging insurance for our first school over 30 years ago. We have exhibited at the ISBA Conference since 2018 as well as working closely with other key partners such as Bursarnet. We now insure over 100 independent schools across the UK and would be delighted to talk to you about how we can help protect your school. Our team has decades of experience with all aspects of insurance and risk management, so your school will be in our knowledgeable and professional hands.
