We have worked with many clients in the education sector, many of whom come back to us time and again to update their insights, assess change and gain knowledge about new aspects of their provision.
The testimonials below represent just a small number of our satisfied clients.
Working with Seymour Research was like having our own internal research team. Kathy took the time to get to know and understand our business before starting the research project, so she was able to challenge some of our internally held perceptions. The output from the research has been invaluable, both in terms of further developing our business and for our marketing activity. I recommend Kathy and Seymour Research to anyone looking for high quality qualitative research.
Fay Steer, Head of Marketing
The IT Department at the University of Winchester had carried out surveys in-house over a number of years but we had no professional experience of constructing surveys or presenting the end results; we had statisticians and lots of enthusiasm but the survey content had become confused and too long. We contacted Kathy Seymour to ask her to help us; right from the start, Kathy and her team were very approachable, demonstrated their extensive experience of surveys and had a very good grounding in the education sector. Following a number of email conversations, Kathy re-built our in-house survey, reduced the content but at the same time allowed us to continue to measure against previously collected data. The results were more than we had anticipated – response to the survey was very good, Kathy’s team analysed the data for us (including an in-depth commentary on the comments) and the results were presented back in a professional report. Our understanding of the issues raised was greatly enhanced by the newly-structured survey and the analysis presented back to us.
I have no hesitation in recommending Seymour Research.

Seymour Research provided us with all the aspects of an anonymous parental survey. All personnel were exceptionally professional in their approach and thorough in their collection of data. The analysis provided us with a few development points to take forwards; I had every trust in the final report and its findings.
Senior Leaders particularly favoured this approach which delivered the analysis to us, we were removed from the process and then could respond positively to the outcomes.
