Fiona Tierney

Market Researcher

Fiona joined RSAcademics in 2016. She specialises in qualitative research and mystery shopping.

She worked as a stockbroker in the City of London and was Chair of the Parents Association at her children’s prep school before going on to work as web editor in the marketing department of a leading boarding and day school.

Fiona attended an independent girls’ day school in the United States and is a parent of independently educated twins and a step-parent to grammar school-educated children providing her with insight into the independent and the state sectors.

She has an understanding of independent schools both as a parent and as a member of staff and is therefore well placed to interview current and prospective parents in her qualitative research role.
