Ranking the risks facing independent schools

  • Independent schools face a variety of challenges, some of which could lead to profound short and long-term impacts
  • Zurich Municipal held a focus group to gather insight from some of Britain’s leading independent schools on how different risks are perceived
  • We have now produced a report which brings together this insight and ranks the different risks facing the sector, in terms of their likelihood and potential impact

Independent schools must work together and share knowledge in order to mitigate the complex set of risks they face as a sector.

That is one of the key messages to come out of a new report published by Zurich Municipal – Tough times: Perspectives on risks for independent schools 2019. Our report assesses and ranks a number of short and long-term risks facing the sector, from the affordability of an independent school education, to recruitment challenges, regulatory compliance and safeguarding.

The report was produced following a focus group event hosted by Zurich Municipal, and attended by representatives of a number of Britain’s leading independent schools.
