In providing bespoke policy cover and dedicated risk management services, D E Ford have been safeguarding schools, staff and students against possible risks associated with educational environments for in excess of 30 years.

D E Ford has acquired considerable experience in assisting a wide range of educational institutions in obtaining the most appropriate policy cover to suit their individual needs. It is this experience within that has led D E Ford to understand the most challenging aspects in providing quality protection to boarding schools, day schools, Pre-Prep schools, Prep schools, single sex and co-ed schools, faith and non-faith institutions throughout the UK.

D E Ford are able to offer a full package of covers for Independent Schools.  Our products can be tailored to suit your schools specific needs. For further information on the click here.

The D E Ford approach is based upon ensuring your investment in insurance protection is realised at your time of need. This is achieved through a combination of in-depth client meetings and placement of cover with insurer partners who possess the necessary financial stability, longevity and experience to fulfil your requirements in the long-term.

Whatever your needs, we work with you to provide a solution that will protect the schools interests for the future, on a basis which has been prepared following full client interaction and a complete understanding of the exposures present.
