Data and Intel

Most of our data and intelligence is collected annually from our primary source; directly from senior leaders at the international schools, 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 analysed to produce the most reputable, current and comprehensive research for the sector. Because we have been collecting and analysing this data for over 20 years, ISC is also able to produce valuable market trends and forecasts.


What information do we collect?

“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."
