Deep-dive, informative surveys designed specifically for your school

An online survey tool using a mix of standardised key performance measures and tailored questions, specifically designed to provide information relevant to your school.

Our surveys are tailored to provide detailed and in-depth insights to inform strategic planning. Each survey generates hundreds of written comments from participants. We study these carefully to add depth, nuance and colour to the detailed statistical analysis.

Our experienced consultants guide you through each stage of the project, offering expert advice. A final presentation and discussion ensure you gain a full understanding of the data and insights and how to use them.
