Please contact the Finance Office for further details on how to make a claim. 

The insurance policies of the School do not cover loss of pupils’ belongings. Parents’ householders’ comprehensive or all-risks policies should be suitably extended to give adequate cover. Alternatively, the School has arranged access to a pupils’ personal effects insurance scheme. Cover can be provided by payment of a termly premium.

If you would like to participate in the personal effects insurance scheme please download an application form. Please send completed forms to the Finance Office.
