The ToucanTech UK Schools Report 2020

Read the inaugural benchmarking report created with ToucanTech UK School customers.

After an unusual year, we’ve compiled the data so schools can take a deeper look at the trends that have evolved as a result of the pandemic. In this inaugural report, we have analysed data held in ToucanTech systems from 124 UK schools. 

As you will see in the report, our analysis of 1 million database records of parents, students, alumni and staff from 124 independent and state schools has resulted in some interesting findings about school development practices in 2020, which was a particularly challenging period of time for so many. 

As is to be expected, many methods of engaging school communities in traditional, 'offline' initiatives saw declining results, but encouragingly, certain key 'online' engagement metrics actually increased; we observed more emails being sent and read, and more content being published and consumed.

We hope you share in the keen sense of community that we feel in celebrating the hard-earned successes of development offices across the country.
