Data and Intel

Most data and intelligence supplied by ISC Research is collected directly from senior leaders at international schools. This data and intelligence gathering is conducted year-round by our field-based research consultants supported by our desk researchers. We also use trusted local sources, market experts and government bodies to acquire reliable market intelligence.

The raw data and intelligence is then verified and analysed to produce the most reputable, current and comprehensive research on the international schools sector. Because we have been collecting and analysing this data for more than 25 years, ISC Research is also able to produce valuable market trends and forecasts.

How our customers use our data and intel

Established international schools use our data and intelligence to inform their school business planning and strategies and to prepare for campus expansions and new school development. More details on the services for international schools are available here.

Investors and independent schools considering international school development benefit from our Global Opportunities Report and Market Intelligence Reports

Organisations supporting international schools with educational supplies, solutions and partnerships use our online data platform, ISC Online.

“The intelligence and informed data that ISC Research now provides is matchless and highly respected. It helps school leaders to understand their context, investors to find reliable markets, governments to see opportunity. While prediction is a game for the unwary, especially in a sometimes volatile world, informed choice with ISC Research intelligence balances risk - and the future of international school education looks full of vitality.”
Trevor Rowell, Chairman, COBIS (Council of British International Schools)

“We would not be able to do our job, or expand as we have done, without ISC Research. If you are new to the international schools market, embrace all the support that's available from ISC Research, and even if you're well established within it, their information is so valuable, and ISC Research provides plenty of it, it's accelarated our understanding of a market that is constantly changing, that's fast moving and fluid. It's vital to remain informed because of this."
Kris Hair, Managing Director, The International Teaching Partnership
