G&A celebrate with Merchant Taylors’ School on historic 400+1 anniversary

Merchant Taylors 400+1 Anniversary Dinner | Griffiths & Armour

Griffiths & Armour would like to congratulate all staff, students (past and present) and parents at Merchant Taylors’ School in Crosby, on reaching the incredible milestone of 400+1 years which was recently celebrated at a dinner held at Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium.

Merchant Taylors’ School was founded in 1620 by John Harrison, a Merchant Taylor of London, and is known as one of the finest schools in the North West. Unfortunately, the pandemic and social mixing restrictions resulted in the original celebration date being postponed in 2020 with the new date being set in November 2021 – therefore the celebrations were quickly changed to 400th + 1.

Griffiths & Armour manage the insurance and risk management requirements for many education sector organisations including schools, colleges and universities across the UK. The challenges for the sector have been well documented so this anniversary event was a great opportunity to celebrate and finish the year on a high and, for the former classmates and teachers of Merchant Taylors’, a great chance to get together to recall their experiences of their time in school. Raffles and auctions with superb prizes also helped raise vital funds for bursaries to support students who are in most need of financial assistance.

Matt Donnelly, Chief Executive, Griffiths & Armour Insurance Brokers said,

“Our association with Merchant Taylors’ and the friendships formed have developed over many years. In addition to being the schools appointed insurance broker, several former pupils and their family members are now our clients, entrusting us to manage their personal and professional risk management and insurance requirements. Others have chosen insurance as a career path who are now part of our team, enjoying long and successful careers with us. We are immensely proud of our close relationship with the school and look forward to this continuing for many years to come”.
