Independent Schools’ Pension Scheme (ISPS)

An occupational pension scheme for people working in Independent Schools. More than 75 schools have chosen us to provide their pension for more than 4,100 support employees.

With competitive costs, high levels of service and professionalism we are dedicated to providing high quality workplace pensions for the support staff of Independent Schools. As a pension scheme provided by TPT Retirement Solutions, one of the leading workplace pension funds in the UK, we have security in strength and size and have a long ­term record of investment. The scheme was established in 1996 in conjunction with the Independent Schools’ Bursars Association, which supports and advises the bursars and senior management staff.

Saving for Retirement
To help you in retirement, your employer may have automatically enrolled you into a workplace pension scheme. Once enrolled, you, your employer, and the Government all contribute to your pension pot, which you can take when you retire. As a pension provider, we have helped enrol nearly 100,000 employees for more than 700 employers.

Remember, the amount you pay in is a key factor in determining the size of your pension pot at retirement.
