Talk to teachers via Schoolzone

Market research

Schoolzone is the UK’s education-focused market research specialist and we're MRS Company Partners. For over 20 years, we’ve been working with teachers to answer questions on behalf of clients and we’ve worked with most of the leading publishers, awarding bodies, charities, museums, management consultants, service providers  - anyone with an interest in our schools.


We have the UK’s largest dedicated research panel (fully GDPR compliant), with detailed profiling, allowing us to add detail via schools data. We have a strong international reach too. Our offerings run from full service (design to recommendations) or any part of the service. We can arrange school visits, reviews, interviews, panels – just ask: we can almost certainly manage it for you: 01242 262906



If you simply need to get a message to teachers – try ours: they’re loyal (some have been with us for 20 years) because we help them professionally and only advertise products and services that we know will be of interest.


Advertise via run-of-site MPUs or via email to our members – either as bespoke emails (we can build them for you too) or via our 6-weekly newsletters. Full reporting is available and we can add in schools data too.


Call us on 01242 262906 or email



Fairtrade Foundation worked with Schoolzone on a major piece of research to inform a review of Fairtrade Foundation’s schools offer. The research results were well presented in person and with detailed and summarised reports that we regularly consult and revisit. They provided the team with a number of new key insights about the audience which have helped with refining and improving the offer so that it matches teachers’ needs much better; uptake of resources has already improved markedly in the last nine months. - (Kate Jones - Education Manager, Fairtrade Foundation)
I worked with Schoolzone on a qualitative project to explore the different channels that our customers use to interact with us. They were very professional in their approach. They ensured that they thoroughly understood the background to the project and the objectives of the research. The results and the insights gleaned from the project were presented in a clear and engaging way and I would happily recommend them to other client side research professionals. - (Anna Erencan - Customer Insight Manager, The Consortium)
Thanks for all your work this week with the focus groups, we all found them really interesting to observe. - (Oxfam)
Thanks again the session today – I thought it ran really smoothly and it was interesting to hear feedback like that directly. Thanks to Helen as well for slipping in my additional questions as we were going! - (anonymous client)
Thanks for the two online supply teacher focus groups last week – they went really well and obtained exactly the kind of feedback we were seeking to help us with both our product development and creative approach to our communications.
