Funding for schools

Schools Advisory Service (SAS) is the UK’s largest insurance services provider within the educational sector, insuring over 4,000 schools nationwide. The reason why SAS continues to be the market leader in its industry is because SAS puts relationships with its customers, at the heart of its business model.

John Brady, (the MD of SAS) said “I have always ensured that my unique understanding of insurance and specialist support services required by customers within the educational sector has meant that I can ensure that year on year, SAS will continue to meet the needs of our customers and so, remain relevant to them as it is our goal to ensure that we support them.”

To this end, John Brady turned to Shawbrook Bank rather than the usual list of high street lenders, as he wanted somebody who understood his business in detail, as he believes that whenever you do business, relationships are the key element. With Shawbrook Bank’s support, SAS will continue its growth so that not only will SAS remain relevant to its customers, but it will also become synonymous whenever anybody talks about insurance within the educational sector.

SAS utilised the services of Hawkins Hatton Corporate Lawyers who have, for a number of years, been the cornerstone of legal support within SAS’ business. Colin Rodrigues (Corporate Partner at Hawkins Hatton Corporate Lawyers) said “I agree with John that relationships are a cornerstone of business dealings and it has been a great pleasure for HH to help John in a small part in his journey to ensure that SAS achieves and continues to achieve all of its goals within its business.
