How do you talk to them on social media? Can they afford your fees? Where can you find more of them? How can you transport them to your school?

Would You Like A PIE Score With That?

By way of example, at Education Geographics (EGS) we’re now starting our third year of producing online and interactive school dashboards and maps, and we are already heading

SES Funding Map - Education Geographics

SES FUNDING AND POSSIBLE WINNERS AND LOSERS

The Commonwealth Government has recently adopted changes in Federal funding for Non-Government schools. These changes remove the spatial weighting for Occupation and Education from the old Howard-era SES scores and instead rely on data linkages to provide a direct measure of matched Personal Income Tax (PIT) for parents and guardians. A higher PIT means higher

Our People

What Our Clients Say....

Thanks John, the whole platform is very good and getting better – thank you for your support of our School’s progress.

Tintern Grammar School

Brad Fry

( Principal - Tintern Grammar )

Our College has used the services of John Black (ADS) for many years now, and reliable statistics with great interpretation has given our Board and Executive greater confidence about the marketplace than we could possibly have otherwise. Every school should be watching its market and demographics closely, and in this field, the work of John Black (ADS) is outstanding.

Citipointe-Christian-College-Logo

Pastor Ron Woolley

( Retired Headmaster - Citipointe Christian College )

As a result of the work we have done with ADS and Business Geographics, our approach to future enrolment recruitment has become far more strategic, focussed and efficient. In particular, the geo-coding of enrolments has enabled us to recalibrate our bus runs… so as to maximise service to families with enrolled students in 2015. Really useful data.

West-Moreton-Anglican-College

Geoff McLay

( Principal - West Moreton Anglican College )

These new on line reports and the format they are presented on are fantastic. There is a lot of rich data there that would have gathered dust in the hard copy of the report, but the interactivity of the site is much more conducive to digesting the material. One key to making this useful is your interpretation and descriptions for the items like Stereotypes, Demographics, etc. Thanks for taking us on as a demonstration school. I hope you benefit from it as much as we are.

St-Andrews-Lutheran-College

Stephen Cooke

( Business Manager - St Andrews Lutheran College )

John Black, through ADS and Education Geographics has assisted our strategic marketing, enrolment targeting, bus routes and aided in a deeper understanding of our current parent demographics and the overall demographics of our drawing area. This has been done via data sets, presented as interactive maps and easy to understand visual information. The interactive maps and visual information comes with easy to understand instructions and most importantly, accurate analysis.
