Our latest, in-depth research report reveals how parents feel UK independent schools have responded to the pandemic and their views on future schooling.

During the Summer term 2020, we offered a series of free surveys to support schools. The RSAcademics COVID-19 parent survey was one of them: a standardised survey designed to tell school leaders about levels of parental satisfaction and provide insights into their likely behaviour and concerns in the future.

We have now summarised the combined findings of all of the surveys. In addition, using the insight gained from over 150 research interviews, we have highlighted priorities for the new academic year. The interviews were conducted with Heads, Chairs of Governors, Directors of Marketing & Admissions and Bursars between March and July.

To find out how the attitudes and perceptions of your school’s parent body may have changed, please contact us to see how we can help. We offer customisable surveys as well as a new suite of benchmarked SchoolPulse surveys – to find out more about them, please visit our Stakeholder research pages.
