Endsleigh signs as principal partner with rugby school for bicentenary celebrations

Endsleigh Insurance, part of the Howden group, is delighted to announce that they are teaming up with Rugby school as one of its principal partners for the 2023 celebrations of the bicentenary of rugby football.

Alison Meckiffe, CEO of Endsleigh Insurance said: “As specialists in independent school insurance, we are delighted to be involved in this exciting year for Rugby School. The first ever inter-school rugby match was played between Rugby School and Cheltenham College, so we are delighted to be renewing the link between Rugby and Cheltenham….200 years later!”

As birthplace of the game, the school has planned an exciting year of national and international matches and other events to celebrate the 200th anniversary. Endsleigh’s support will help the school to fund and deliver a huge programme of events over the whole of 2023, with dozens of games played at Rugby, where the game began, for all ages, abilities and genders from U9s’ club tournaments, to international matches.

Endsleigh has a rich tradition of supporting and servicing the education community. Their bespoke independent school solution is built around three principles of ‘Your School, Your Pupils, and Your People’, offering a wide array of insurances from pupils’ personal accident to complex commercial and buildings risk, to employee benefits and wellbeing.

They are committed to working collaboratively with the sectors they serve to develop market leading insurance propositions, leveraging a high touch/ high tech approach to deliver excellence in customer experience, while leveraging new technologies to deliver customer benefit. For example their new digital schools portal helps eases schools administrative burden, and gives parents a simple tool to manage their insurance needs.

Patrons supporting Rugby School’s celebrations include Martin Johnson CBE; Jason Leonard OBE; Nigel Owens MBE; and Jonny Wilkinson CBE.
